5. Management of Emergencies

The Health and Safety Service's activities include the preparation of emergency and evacuation plans for the various locations.

This implies the preparation of specific procedures for the management of emergencies for each location, considering:

  • the location's structure and systems
  • the human resources present
  • the activities present
  • the risk factors present
  • the degree of relevant training/knowledge of the staff present
  • the preparation of emergency floor plans for display in workplaces
  • the selection and activation of emergency teams or emergency management staff
  • regular emergency drills.

The emergency management plans were prepared in association with other entities in the case of buildings with multiple occupants and regulate the behaviours to be adopted in the case of emergencies occurring in the University.

With regard to preventive and protective measures to reduce fire risk, it should be remembered that a Smoking Ban is in force inside and in the immediate vicinity of all premises. The ban applies to all forms of smoking, including vaping.
