Safety Representative training

All companies with more than five co-workers must have a safety representative.

The safety representative must not be a member in the Union, and the tasks are both important and interesting. The representative is the the voice of the colleagues in the important work environment management, and an employer is greatful for good cooperation with those who want to contribute to safety.

Byggsäkerhet gives this training in both Swedish and English.

  1. Doesn’t a safety representative have to be a member of the union?
    – If the union is to appoint the safety representative, they are usually strict that the person is also a member, and the collective agreements also stipulate that it is the union’s representative who must apply. If you do not have such an agreement, the company can have a safety representative who is not unionized. The sixth chapter of the Work Environment Act does not therefore require that the representative is unionized, but for most construction companies, the representative must still be a member.
  2. If there is a collective agreement with the building – how does it go to become a safety representative?
    – The employees appoint the safety representative – the employer does not have to do with who becomes the representative, but it is of course good if it is a person who is good at cooperating with the company management and can get involved in rules, agreements and agreements.
  3. What do you get for becoming an agent – salary increase?
    – No, it would not work. The safety representative must be completely without such hooks from the employer. It is an important task and you get to learn a lot that is good for the company and your friends. Today, everyone is concerned that company management and safety representatives work together for everyone’s safety.
  4. Who is responsible for the safety representative having the right competence?
    – It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that safety representatives have the right skills.
    We do not have a safety representative – what should our company do?
  5. – Yes, there is always a safety representative, in fact. If you do not have your own, you can always turn to one of the regional safety representatives. They are very grateful for establishing a good contact. It is of course best to have your own safety representative on site, and it is usually best when company management and safety representatives attend work environment training together, then the collaboration is based on an early stage and you can decide directly how you want to arrange safety in the company.
