The main goal of the Humak University of Applied Sciences is to provide students and staff with a safe study and work environment.

The main goal of Humak UAS is to provide a safe and secure environment for students and staff to study and work. A safe learning environment is a common concern for the people of Humak. Everyone has a responsibility to help maintain safety and to report any safety deficiencies, hazards, threats and accidents that they find. It is everyone’s responsibility to take action to the best of their abilities to prevent, rescue and assist immediately upon detection of a threatening situation.

As a result of the network structure of Humak and the cooperation with the colleagues on the campuses, security management and planning is mainly carried out by the owner of the campus property. In the case of Humak, the Rector, assisted by the Director of Security, is responsible for security. Safety training and exercises are organized for students and staff. The Humak Security Director is also a member of the University of Applied Sciences security group and has been appointed as a contact person with the authorities.

Humak does not have its own premises, which means that Humak can rely on the emergency plans of the colleagues on the campuses. All those working and studying on the premises should familiarize themselves with these emergency plans beforehand, including practising evacuations.

The safety team is convened by any member of the team who becomes aware of a crisis. If necessary, the team may also convene other persons as required. The team should meet preferably within a few hours of hearing about the crisis.

Humak has developed recommendations for safer online teaching. The recommendations set out ways to ensure that every student has the right to be treated as themselves in online learning situations, without fear of discrimination or harassment.
