European University Cyprus is strongly committed to fully complying with all the local and international, health and safety laws and regulations. A safe and healthy working environment is provided on permanent basis to all employees, students and visitors, and this is achieved through the appropriate support, resources and training in order to perform their jobs or attend their classes safely.
Since March of 2014, European University Cyprus is awarded with the OHSAS 18001:2007 Certification making it the first university in Cyprus and Greece that has been recognized for reaching the requirements of this international standard.
In addition, European University Cyprus has successfully completed the audit by TUV Austria Hellas in May of 2015 and has been awarded with the ISO 14001 Certification. ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard that outlines how to put an effective environmental management system in place. It is designed to help organizations remain commercially successful without overlooking environmental responsibilities.
The combination of these two certifications confirms that we have created an occupational system for effective management of all the issues on health, safety and environment in the campus. Also, this system will assist us year after year, to improve our working environment by complying with the local legislation, preventing accidents and incidents and reducing occupational hazards within the organization. In addition, the total performance of the organization in Health, Safety and Environment will be improving on a continuous basis by applying the procedures and processes included in the system and controlling the aspects and consequences by all the activities performed.
Since October of 2017, European University Cyprus is holding the affirmation of conformity for ISO 2603:2016 by TUV Austria Hellas. This affirmation confirms that the University has established and implements the requirements and recommendations for building and renovating permanent booths for simultaneous interpreting at the Cultural Center.
