Safety Competence

Safe everyday life

What safety-related responsibilities and duties do you have as a teacher?
The teacher should understand the importance of contingency planning in their own work. The teacher must also take into account the student's point of view and how his or her own incomplete or erroneous actions can cause even serious danger situations.

Get to know the everyday school life with the videos below. Because security and safety management students were involved in screenwriting the videos, the student perspective is strongly present. The videos also provide new perspectives for those who do teaching work.

Bullying

The prevention of and intervention in violence, bullying and harassment is the responsibility of all those working in the institution. Social security enables a young person to develop safely at each stage of socialization.

Fire

Exit exercises are part of the everyday life of the school. Sometimes an incident requires personal observation and response. After the reaction time, the person makes the decision to start the initial fire extinguishing or to leave the building. Human perception is affected by physical characteristics (age, hearing, sight, sense of smell), technology (such as fire alarms / detectors) and environmental factors. A person's reaction is also influenced by experience - has the person been in a similar situation before? Has training been provided on a similar situation? Exiting the building is affected by physical characteristics and whether the building is familiar. A person’s knowledge, skills, education, and previous training also have an impact.

A threat factor

Promoting the safety of the learning environment is part of the operating culture of the educational community. It should be taken into account in all activities of the institution using the early intervention model.

A single mental threat can easily turn into a security risk that physically endangers the entire educational community. The teacher plays a key role in making observations and intervening in the situation.

Security and privacy

Information security is related to the confidentiality, integrity and preservation of information. Data protection relates to an individual's rights with regard to information about him or her. Educational institutions use information that requires care and accuracy in processing. Care must be taken to ensure that those who need information and who have the right to receive appropriate information also receive it smoothly. On the other hand, care must be taken to ensure that data is not accessed by unauthorized persons. For example, it is necessary to consider when the use of a personal identity number is necessary.
