Risk assessment in the Systematic Work Environment Management

All co-workers and students shall have a good work- and study environment and an opportunity to promote their own health. Managers and study organizers have the main responsibility for this but everyone must contribute and participate. Below you can read more about how we handle work environment and health issues at KI.

Safety representatives, members of KI Work Environment Groups, HR-consultants and others who shall take part in risk assessments are also welcome to this training, but the prerequisite is that they have participated in the Basic Work Environment Training, KI.

Nota bene. Advanced risk assessments for laboratory work is not a part of this training. For more information, please contact Security and Environment Unit.

Risk assessments – important terms and definitions. Risk assessment methodology incl. demands on documentation. MTO-perspective (risk sources connected to Man/human, Technology and Organization). Blended learning with short theoretical lectures and several group tasks/trainings.

Questions to be answered

  • Why and when do we have to conduct risk assessments? “Is it not enough just to talk to each other about risks at work?”
  • Who is responsible and who shall participate/collaborate in risk assessments?
  • “We have conducted a risk assessment – what happens next?”
