Social safety at the SSC
Social safety is everyone's business. All employees, students and guests of SSC are jointly responsible for a safe and positive working and sports environment. The SSC expects everyone, employee, student or guest, to deal responsibly with the ethical aspects of the working and sports environment. But what if you suspect that something is happening that should not be done, if you yourself have a conflict of interest or if you have to deal with undesirable behavior?
Does it concerns work-related matters, such as working hours, salary or work conditions? If so, it is best to first discuss the situation with the person concerned. If you do not dare to do so or if you cannot resolve the matter, you can always approach the manager of the person involved, the SSC director or the TU/e ombudsman.
Does it concern undesirable behavior, such as violence, bullying, discrimination or unacceptable sexual behavior? If so, you can seek advice from the confidential contact person or use the social support guides.
Where to go to for confidentiality issues at the SSC?
A confidential contact person is the first point of contact for anyone who has a question about or experiences transgressive behavior. The CCP acts as the first point of contact for anyone with a complaint or question. They will not handle complaints themselves, but offer a listening ear, give advice and refer to suitable help, such as a specialized confidential advisor. The confidential contact person handles all requests for help in strict confidentiality. Any action is only taken with the consent of the person reporting.
Even if you are in doubt about the (seriousness of the) situation, do not hesitate to contact the person you think can best help. Your report is always handled confidentially.
The CCP's of the SSC
As confidential contact person I find it important to offer people a safe listening ear and to help them in the right direction.
I think it's important that no matter what your background or culture is, there is someone there for you who is willing to listen and help you make the right contacts needed to feel socially safe.
A socially safe environment is important for everyone at the SSC. That is why I am there for anyone who does not feel safe at the SSC. I offer a listening ear and try to help with advice to get that safe environment back.
I think it is important that everyone who enters the SSC feel safe and accepted. I like to listen to you if you do not experience that safety/acceptance.
Should you encounter something you don't like at the SSC or if you have a problem, I would be happy to listen to your story and/or try to advise you on who to turn to.
