Safety officer

We at ECCB2018 want to ensure that everyone feels safe in our conference, so we have organized an independent Safety officer from the Finnish Red Cross. Participants can report to the Safety officers if code of conduct has been broken, if there has been disturbing behavior, if there are any other issues regarding to safety, or if the participant just feels the need to discuss with someone. Safety officers are also able to offer first aid.

Safety officer(s) can be met daily 9-17 at a separate Safety officer room (Room1 on the first floor).
