Just as for Lund University, it is an important task for LUSEM to create a good and safe work environment. Every faculty has their own health and safety representative representing you as an employee and will participate in preventive measures taken concerning the work environment at your workplace. The health and safety representatives and other relevant contact persons at LUSEM are listed to the right.
Work environment issues can be about, for example, fire safety, indoor climate or risks in the working environment. Contact: Jörgen Norén
Lund University employees are entitled to reimbursement of expenses for health promotion and a health promotion hour (friskvårdstimme). All employees at Lund University are also entitled to reimbursement of health promotion activities. Through its health promotion benefits, Lund University wants to encourage health awareness among its employees, offering them an opportunity to participate regularly in health-promoting activities. A gym membership or equivalent cost is reimbursed up to a maximum of SEK 1 870.
If something happens to you at work, this should always be reported. Information about reporting occupational injuries and workplace incidents is available at the LU Staff Pages.
Equipment and needs
If you are in need of, for example, glasses for computer work, an office chair or any ergonomic equipment, you can get help from the physiotherapists/ ergonomists at the Occupational Health Service at Lund University. The physiotherapists/ ergonomists can make an estimation of your needs, but when it comes to glasses, you must of course undertake an eye examination at an optician. Lund University has a government procurement agreement with the optician chain Synoptik. Usually it is the Head of department who undersigns the order form for the purchase of glasses, which should be completed before visiting the optician.
Check out who is in charge of equipment ain your department or talk to our Human Resources staff.
