Social Safety and Security

A safe and secure society is capable of maintaining its vital functions also when put under stress. It is a society where critical societal functions are rarely put out of play, and where accidents, natural hazards and malicious intended acts do not lead to grave consequences for life, health, environment or material values. It is a society where organizations and government is able to control the hazards that we are able to predict, and at the same time being able to deal with the scenarios which we failed to predict.
