Environmental and sustainability work
To strengthen our environmental and sustainability work, Karolinska Institutet has begun working towards certification under the international environmental management standard ISO 14001.
Equal opportunity between men and women is an important issue on the agenda in the Department of Medicine at Huddinge University Hospital.
The Work environment group at the Department consists of 12 permanent members from different professions and one or two student representatives.
The group meets once a month, is advisory to the head of the department and reports to the Department Council. The work carried out during the year and plans for the next are described in the Department's annual report.
Some recurrent activities are:
- At least one "Quality Round" per semester, i.e. lectures with work environment or equal opportunity topics.
- Annual award for the best contribution to work environment. The price winner/winners are nominated by colleagues and receive the sum of 5.000 SEK.
- Every year the Work environment group makes arrangements for vaccination against the flu for all personnel.
Work environment organisation
The Swedish Work Environment Act and related directives must be observed on a continuous basis and in an integral way in the work of the Department. Everyone active in the organization is under duty to contribute to the best of their ability.
