The priority of Brno University of Technology is a safe working and learning environment for everyone who is part of it. That is why the university has prepared an internal web guide for its students and employees, which focuses on safety education, training and prevention.

To handle any crisis situation, it is essential to be familiar with the regulations and rules and to be able to apply them in practice. On the aforementioned website, visitors can find safety cards with instructions on how to behave in various types of emergencies, training in the form of presentations and videos, a link to the related directive, and also contacts for people in charge of safety at all levels of BUT.

BUT is taking active steps for the safety of the university community
