Be 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.

What is a student health and safety representative?

The student health and safety representative works on the students’ behalf, to:

  • affect the working conditions with the aim of contributing to a good study environment
  • take part in health and safety inspections
  • assess how changes affect the students’ work environment
  • stay abreast of work environment legislation.

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