Emergency organisation

An emergency / crisis management organisation is on hand within the University to deal with the psychological and social care provision in connection with accidents, emergency situations and similar serious incidents which can trigger emergency reactions. Crisis support is regulated in the directives issued by the Employees' Protection Board, AFS 1999:7.

The crisis organisation at Halmstad University consists of a 'line' organisation (see below), crisis management group and various resource staff members.

The line organisation's (ie school, department or equivalent) heads are normally responsible for the management of accidents, mortalities and similar incidents.

The crisis management group at Halmstad University has a coordinative function in the case of serious accidents, disasters and other similar incidents where it is difficult for the line organisation to take stock of a rapidly developing situation and its consequences or where the line organisation has difficulties in getting together at short notice.

The crisis management group has three main tasks:

  • on behalf of the line organisation attempt to weigh up and take stock of the emergency situation.
  • to activate the line organisation and bring its members together where required.
  • as a last resort to take over the responsibility for the line organisation if so required.

The crisis management group acts as a complement to the other emergency and disaster management bodies in the community.

The crisis organisation is led by the crisis management group.

The University has a number of 'line' based supportive functionaries, so-called staff resource members who beyond the tasks as described above, are ready to lend support to the crisis management organisation.
