Submit a report to SLU Security

Last changed: 07 February 2023

In order for SLU Security to become aware of near-accidents and concrete incidents relating to security at SLU, you must submit an incident report.

Why submit a report?

It is important to report incidents and near-accidents for several reasons. Among other things, as a public authority and employer, we are obligated to report certain near-accidents and incidents, but it is also important in order to be able to see possible patterns and follow up with statistics. What the individual perceives as an isolated incident can in fact be part of a series of incidents that show some kind of pattern. Therefore, it is important that everyone at SLU feels responsible, including for events that do not pertain to their operations.

Incident reports can lead to preventative measures which can prevent or reduce the number of similar incidents in the future, or reduce the consequences of such incidents.

When to submit a report

Submit a report as soon as possible after an incident has occurred. This is so the person reporting the incident has a fresh memory of it and because SLU Security must be able to act and inform others if necessary.
The person who carries out or is responsible for possible measures depends on what has happened. This means that different people and functions can become involved. It can be your immediate manager, their manager, SLU Security, the Division of Human Resources, the Division of IT, etc.

Other types of reporting

  • Everyone at SLU is responsible for quickly reporting (or ensuring that a report is submitted) IT incidents that may affect security by contacting IT Security.
  • If you have suffered an occupational injury (not just a near-accident), there is a procedure to follow when you report it. See the link below. According to the Work Environment Act, everyone responsible for the work environment (manager) is also responsible for reporting near-accidents or injury in the work environment to the Swedish Work Environment Authority. 
    Contact the Division of Human Resources if you have any questions on occupational injuries. They handle occupational injury matters. Information on occupational injury reports can be accessed through the link to the Division of Human Resources at the bottom of this page.
  • Crimes must be reported to the police by the person(s) affected. Call the police on 114 14, visit a police station or go to their website. See the link in the right-hand column. Do not forget to inform SLU Security if you have submitted a police report.
  • Insurance matters must be submitted to the Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency. Contact the Legal Affairs Unit with insurance matters.


Reports and information is saved and processed in accordance with the Personal Data Act and, when necessary, the Public Access to Information and Secrecy Act. You can also submit a report anonymously in the incident report system.
