WORK ENVIRONMENT REPRESENTATIVE (SKYDDSOMBUD)

Britt-Marie Olsson
Magnus Claesson
Jens Danielsson
Maria Sallander Hellman
Theresa Kriegler (PhD-representative)

The Work Environment Act states that the employer and the employee should work together in the work environment management. Even if the employer has the utmost responsibility for the work environment, it is a stated requirement that the organised work environment management should be run together with the employees and their representatives. The employees’ representative is the safety representative or the work environment representative, as it is also called.

WORK ENVIRONMENT GROUP MEETINGS (ARBETSMILJÖGRUPPMÖTEN)

A group consisting of employer representatives and employee representatives (work environment representatives) meet quarterly and discuss work environment issues. Contact one of the representatives if you have a question you want to bring up. Also see protocols.

RISK ASSESSMENTS

According to Swedish work environment authorities all potential hazardous procedures, (using chemicals and/or equipment), needs to be risk assessed. Risk assessing planned experiments is the responsibility of each research group leader. Risk assessment can be done by using a tool in KLARA.

 

INCIDENTS, ACCIDENTS AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS

Incidents, accidents, illness, working or external environmental problems, or safety issues are reported via SAMIR (Säkerhet-Arbetsmiljö-Inrapporteringssystem).
