Our work environment is important both for securing job satisfaction and avoiding accidents. We must all strive for the best possible work environment, for our own sake and others, so we have a responsibility to be aware of and abide by the rules that apply. If you need help or more information, please contact one of our health and safety representatives.

Reporting incidents and accidents
There is a legal obligation to report accidents and incidents (situations that could have led to an accident). Contact your head of unit as well as your health and safety representative for assistance in this matter.
Psychosocial work environment
Our objective is to create a good work environment. Every year we send out a survey to the department staff members. The Health, Environment and Safety (HMS) committee and the Health, Environment and Safety working group (HMS-AU) work to remedy the problems identified through the surveys.
If you experience psychosocial problems at work you need to notify your head of unit or your health and safety representative. If you do not wish to discuss these problems with either of them, there are also two specially appointed staff representatives with whom you can discuss these problems in confidence: Carina Rasmussen (contact info on our external website) at the Biology building and Anders Brodin (contact info on our external website) at the Ecology building. Naturally, you can also send them other thoughts or comments that you might have.
At the Lund University's main Staff Pages there is information about waste disposal. Ask the personal responsible for your lab how you should handle the waste.
