Your work environment

This page provides information about your work environment and Lund University's systematic work environment management.

In the left column you can also read more about 

Work environment 

The work environment is everything that affects how we feel at work. It includes, for example, the premises we spend time in during the working day, the ergonomic conditions for carrying out the work and how we cooperate with and treat each other. It is also about how work is organised.

Work environment policy

Lund University's work environment policy covers both employees and students and describes how working conditions should be so that no one suffers ill health or accidents at work. It also clarifies that victimisation is not accepted within the university's activities.

Systematic work environment management

Lund University conducts systematic work environment management (SAM).

The Professional development portal (Kompetensportalen) contains a basic work environment course in Swedish for everyone working at the university. The course is digital and describes, among other things, SAM and what role you as an employee have in this work. 

You can access the course by logging in to Kompetensportalen
