9.3 Plan of Action for Emergency Evacuations

When the evacuation alarm bells ring the following steps should be taken

  • If there is an alarm in your building you must always evacuate and go to your assembly point.
  • You shall promptly interrupt your work in a safe and secure manner.
  • Work being carried out in a ventilation hood shall be interrupted in such a way that safety will be maintained even if the work materials will remain standing for a more extended time period. Then the hood shall be closed.
  • In each room, check that no persons are left behind.  Then close the door.
  • Bring your coat, keys and mobile phone if it possible without delaying the evacuation. 
  • All personnel shall go to the reassembly points.
  • Do not re-enter the building until authorization is given from Kemicentrum, Lund University security staff.
  • A list of personnel and telephone numbers should be available as an aid in confirming that nobody is left in the building. Divisions/departments should compile such lists on an ongoing basis.

In the event of an acute accident involving fire and smoke

  • The first priority before doing anything else is to save any persons who are injured or otherwise directly threatened by the accident.
  • If the evacuation alarm has not been activated, warn personnel in the vicinity by manually activating the alarm with one of the alarm buttons positioned nearby. Then call SOS Alarm, phone: (0)-112, to verify that the alarm has been transmitted properly to them.
  • In the event of a limited fire, measures to extinguish should be initiated if this can be done without risk of personal injury.
  • Close all interior doors to hinder the spread of fire and smoke! Make sure no person is left behind.
  • After taking the above measures, quickly evacuate the rest of the floor.
  • If the usual evacuation route is blocked by smoke or fire, take an alternative route.
  • Meet the Fire Department when they arrive. Leave clear indications as to which building and which floor(s) were evacuated and in which department the alarm was activated, as well as the reason for activating the alarm.

You will be allowed to re-enter the building as soon as the Fire Department determines that it is safe to do so.
