First aiders

First aiders

Comprehensive first aid is provided at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna. We therefore have a comprehensive team of first aiders who are represented in large numbers at every location. In all university buildings you will find a large number of notices with names and telephone numbers of our first aiders, which will be available to you immediately.

In order to keep the lists of preventive forces up to date, the BOKU safety expert asks the institutes, departments, service facilities and staff units to report any changes back to the e-mail address arbeitnehmerinnenschutz(at)

In order to ensure sufficient first aiders, EH courses are regularly offered in the training pass.

You will receive further information after logging in.
