Occupational Health Services at KI
Avonova is the new provider of occupational health services. On this page you may read about Avonovas services for KI employees. If you are a manager or work within HR, please visit the HR-support page.
If you are an employee or a scholarship-funded doctoral/post-doctoral student, you can turn to Avonova in the event of any work-related health issue. By work-related, we mean that there must be a connection between your health and your ability to work, and to the demands at work.
Work-related issues include conditions that are directly caused by your work, are exacerbated by your work or are assumed to be connected to your work. Conditions such as influenza and other respiratory-tract infections are not considered to be work-related – in such cases, you should consult your own health centre. If you are uncertain about anything, you can call any of Avonova`s health centers for advice.
Services that can be ordered from Avonova
As an employee or a scholarship-funded doctoral/post-doctoral student at KI you can order the following services:
- Two appointments per year with a specialist of your choosing: doctor, nurse, physiotherapist, ergonomist, behavioural scientist or psychologist. If additional appointments are required, these must be confirmed with your immediate manager. You can also turn to your local HR department.
- Treatment for needle sticks/other cuts, bites or other forms of blood contamination.
- Vaccinations for Hepatitis B. When necessary, also for Hepatitis A+B. Appointments may only be made with the consent of your immediate manager.
- Statutory medical examinations when, for example, working with laboratory animals or thermosetting plastics. Appointments may only be made with the consent of your immediate manager.
Other services must be ordered by your manager.
All appointments must be booked in advance. If you have booked an appointment but are unable to attend, it must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance – otherwise Avonova will issue an invoice for the appointment.
In general, Avonova has the readiness to book an appointment the same day for the treatment of needle sticks/other cuts where there is a risk of blood infection as well as emergency crisis situations such as threats or violence.
