Work environment policy

Lund University’s Work Environment Policy applies to employees and students. Here, managers can read more about the policy.

Work environment legislation requires all employers with over ten employees to have a written work environment policy. The policy must describe how work conditions are to be designed in order to prevent work-related accidents or ill-health, and how to create a satisfactory work environment. The employer must also make it clear that victimisation will not be accepted within the organisation.

The Work Environment Policy applies to both staff and students. The central health and safety committee is responsible for ensuring that follow-ups to the Work Environment Policy are conducted at the same time as the annual systematic work environment management follow-up.

The Work Environment Policy has strong ties to the strategic plan and the University’s policy for gender equality, equal opportunities and diversity. The policy lays down the university-wide intention with regard to the work environment.

Each organisation within a faculty/equivalent and department/division/equivalent is encouraged to create their own documents and procedures based on the main Work Environment Policy to further clarify organisation-specific ambitions.
