Safe study and work environment
The University of Amsterdam (UvA) contributes to the safety and security of people and property in the UvA's buildings and grounds.
In all UvA buildings, the safety precautions and necessary courses and training are provided by the Company Emergency Response (BHV) service. The central control room is the contact point for reporting incidents. It has a pivotal role in security and is therefore staffed 24/7.
The central control room also carries out monitoring duties and there are surveillance services in the buildings. The UvA is responsible for fireproofing buildings from the owner’s perspective, and ensures safe working and studying conditions in and around the buildings.
