The employer is responsible for the staff’s working environment. It is therefore necessary that SLU early on becomes aware of signs of ill health or other problems related to the working environment.

The purpose of our procedures is to give the employer an idea of the staff’s working environment and working situation.  SLU wants to get an overall picture of the situation, and also be able to quickly make sure that the relevant measures, both preventive activities and direct support, are taken in the workplaces.

For work-related issues, the staff may contact occupational healthcare on their own to book an appointment to see a doctor, nurse, behaviourist or physiotherapist. It is important to note that occupational healthcare does not equal medical treatment.  Occupational healthcare only handles work-related issues. Sometimes it is difficult to decide if a health problem is work-related. If you are unsure, occupational healthcare staff will make the assessment when you book your appointment or during your visit. The reason that occupational healthcare only applies to work-related issues is because of current tax rules.

If the staff member is in need of more visits, they must contact their respective HR specialist for approval.

Heads of department/equivalent may, just as before and if necessary, use occupational healthcare services and bear the cost themselves.

Staff members at other locations must contact a staff specialist.
