Health and safety at HSWT

The objective and purpose of health and safety at Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences is to prevent occupational accidents, occupational illnesses, and work-related health risks. In addition, the objective is to have an efficient organisation in place to protect the life, safety and health of the university staff, also in the case of fire and other emergencies.

These pages are intended to provide you with the names of the health and safety contact persons and the necessary documentation.


Emergency numbers and first aiders

In the case of an emergency, it is important to get the right help quickly. Keep calm and do not panic. Think of the six questions that are really important in an emergency:

  • Where has something happened? (Building name, room number, street, street no., town/city)
  • What has happened? (Fire, accident)
  • How many people are affected? (Number of injured persons, persons in the building)
  • What are the injuries? (Loss of consciousness, pain)
  • Who is making the call? (Name of the caller)
  • Wait for questions! (Do not hang up straight away!)

It is important not to hang up without being requested to do so. The operator may still have questions. In general, the control centre ends the conversation.

Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences provides you with the following emergency numbers to print off and hang up in your work areas. Additional important numbers, such as the number for the laboratory supervisor must also be quickly accessible. Please also hang these up (see Appendix 7 to the main document).

In addition, you will also find sample templates for determining the exact location. The street name and number are particularly important for the control centre. Please add your information to the documents.


The internal crisis team on the Weihenstephan campus is alerted automatically by the works fire brigade in the event of fire.


Immediately after a fire alarm has been set off or a rampage situation has been identified, the staff on site must use an alarm chain to alert the internal crisis team as quickly as possible in accordance with the following plan.

Documentation of first aid measures

Every incident that requires first aid, no matter how minor, must be recorded. This documentation may take the form of an accident book, a report pad or even the first aid report form. These incidents may also be documented electronically if a data protection-compliant system is used. In any case, the records must be kept for at least five years.

Irrespective of who records the incident, it involves data that must be protected against unauthorised access. The information documented is personal data. The General Data Protection Regulation and the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) must be observed.

The documentation of first aid measures is important for all employees, as it can be used as proof of a workplace accident. When bandaging material is removed, the person responsible for the room must be notified so that the material can be replenished where necessary.

The instructions for the first aid report form and the first aid report form itself are available here.

Defibrillators are an important tool when it comes to fighting the most common cause of death in Germany – sudden cardiac death. This can affect anybody – regardless of their fitness or age. However, the occurrence of cardiac arrest need not necessarily lead to death. Immediate cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the quick administration of an electric shock by a defibrillator are often life-saving measures. It is important to act quickly.

In order for a defibrillator to be available promptly, defibrillators have been placed at central locations in Weihenstephan and Triesdorf.

Meeting point

In the event of a fire, it is important to leave the building promptly. Follow the indicated escape and rescue routes. Once outside the building, you must go to the meeting point so that you can be registered as an evacuated person. This applies to all persons who were in the relevant building. Registration ensures that any missing persons can be searched for or that relatives of the staff members can be promptly informed about the state of health of the rescued individuals.

Weihenstephan-Triesdorf University of Applied Sciences provides you with the following PDF documents containing your meeting points so that you can print them off and hang them up in your work areas.
