Crisis communication supports safety work as it prevents the deepening of the crisis. This is achieved by factual, honest, up-to-date and sufficient communication. The principle of crisis communication is to disseminate sufficient, prompt and timely information in compliance with the law and ethical principles. Communication is factual and does not conceal the negative information.
The people responsible for crisis communication are the rector, strategic communication team, student counselling psychologist, safety work coordinator and dean of the school where the crisis has occurred.
The rector or his deputy decides on how disseminate information to the staff and outside the university community. The rector or vice rector is immediately informed of the crisis that has occurred in a school and together the decision is made on how to communicate this information.
It should be noted that in emergencies, the dissemination of information is the responsibility of the authority in charge of the rescue work.
