Welcome to KTH!
Sweden has a legislation on the working environment which places quite strict demands on both employer and employee.
These regulations also apply to visiting researchers.
Work-related accidents and injuries are unusual at KTH.
Responsibility for the working environment
The Head of each School is ultimately responsible for the working environment at his/her School being satisfactory, and for ensuring that no one is injured at work. It is the head person´s responsibility that a systematic working environment revision in accordance with AFS 2001:1 is performed; also that visiting researchers are given an introduction describing the School.
