Become a student health and safety representative

Do you want to represent other students on matters concerning the study and work environment? If so, becoming a student health and safety representative might be something for you.

The role of student health and safety representative

A student health and safety representative works on behalf of students to:

  • influence working conditions to contribute to a good study environment
  • participate in health and safety inspections
  • assess how changes affect the students' work environment
  • keep abreast of legislation relating to the work environment.

The student health and safety representative is not responsible for the work environment.

Training for student health and safety representatives

Every semester, Lund University organises training sessions for all student health and safety representatives, in cooperation with the Student Health Centre, the Occupational Health Services, the Student Ombudsman, and a student representative.

If you have any questions about the training, please contact the Student Ombudsman or your faculty's principal student health and safety representative. You can also contact the Student Health Centre, where the coordinator for the study environment is based.
