An HSE guideline applies to the whole of NTNU and provides guidelines for what to do in given situations. These may be requirements for detailed procedures and routines to be prepared and / or requirements for combinations of technical measures and associated routines for follow-up, maintenance and reporting, etc. The unit can prepare local HSE guidelines, but these can not conflict with the central HSE guidelines.
An HSE procedure describes how to perform a task / activity. The unit can prepare local HSE procedures itself, but these can not conflict with Central HSE procedures.
