Safety network

For a good study and work environment for students and doctoral students

Do you have problems with the psychosocial or physical study environment? Then it is the safety network you should contact!

As a student, you are equated with employees which means that students can and must participate in the work for a good work environment for students (study environment). This is regulated in the Work Environment Act, and works practically with the student union appointing student safety ombudspersons who represent the students in matters concerning the study environment. In addition to the positions as head student safety ombudsperson and student safety ombudspersons, there is one or more student safety representatives. The student safety representatives work as contact person for the students at the programme represented by the section.

Student safety ombudspersons

The student safety ombudspersons (SSO) represent students and doctoral students in matters concerning the physical and psychosocial environment at the university and convey the students’ opinions. The student union has the possibility to elect one SSO per department.

The SSO participates in the work environment / safety round work, discusses and assesses the impact of changes in the study environment, stays up to date on work environment legislation and collaborates with (and sometimes represents) students who want improvements to be implemented.
