Work environment and safety

Work environment

According to the Work Environment Act, preventive work environment management must be carried out systematically and be a natural part of all activities at the department. The work covers physical, psychological and social conditions and should lead to an ethical and equal environment in the workplace and study environment. All employees, doctoral students and students have the right to a working and study environment where everyone's integrity, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity and disability are respected.

Council for Work Environment, Gender Equality and Equal Treatment

The Department of Sociology is actively working on issues related to the work environment, gender equality and equal treatment. This work is important for creating a good working environment for students and staff. A joint council is responsible for the preparatory work on the work environment, gender equality and equal treatment.

The Council Members are listed on our external website.
