Lund University has a central Safety Committee and 26 main work environment areas, of which Kemicentrum is one. Kemicentrum comprises the following departments:
From the work environment safety point of view, the divisions within the Department of Process and life science engineering and the Department of Chemistry are separate work environment areas. In the case of Lund Institute of Technology (LTH) teaching premises and a number of laboratories are included in these work environment areas. In the case of the Faculty of Science, teaching premises in building I constitute a separate work environment area (Division for Undergraduate Teaching in Chemistry).
A division is thus normally a work environment area in which the head of division is responsible for the working environment. Each division also has a safety representative, and deputy, who represent the employees and students, and whose task is to exert an influence on working conditions so as to improve the working environment. The employer or head of division is, however, always responsible for the working environment. Each division also has a person responsible for inflammable materials and a fire safety representative.
General aspects concerned with the working environment and the external environment are dealt with by the Committee for Environment, Health and Safety (EHS Committee (eng), HMS kommitté (sv)) for Kemicentrum.
Kemicentrum also has a principal safety officer (and deputy) whose task is to coordinate the work of the safety representatives and to represent them in matters of common interest.
