Emergencies and critical incidents: information sheets

It cannot be ruled out that individuals or University institutions are threatened or attacked with explosives, letter bombs, firearms or other weapons.

We have compiled the information sheets below to help employees, particularly office support staff and staff at University post offices, recognise dangerous situations and react appropriately.

If we recognise such situations quickly and react appropriately, we can save lives, prevent harm to ourselves and others and prevent damage to University facilities.

We would advise you to read the information sheets at regular intervals and to keep them in a place where they are easily and quickly accessible. The topics discussed in the information sheets should also be covered in your health and safety briefings.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with the  occupational health and safety der Office of Occupational Health and Safety, Animal Welfare and Environmental Protection (phone: 31-82543 or 31-82685 and 31-84897). They will be happy to provide information and advice.
