Work environment and health

An important task for Lund University is creating a good and safe work environment. Preventive work environment management leads to a work environment that benefits both you and your colleagues.

The objective of Lund University’s work environment management is to create an environment that you find rewarding and stimulating. Consideration of the work environment and safety is to be integrated into everything we do and form a natural part of all operational planning.

By offering a stimulating workplace, we help employees to thrive and perform well.
