Annual safety inspections at ITA

The Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics (ITA) conducts annual safety inspections. The inspection is a systematic safety assessment of the workplace and working environment. Employees and students are invited to participate.

Implementation:

The management of ITA, local safety representative and a representative from the staff/students participate in the planning of the annual safety inspection. The inspection is conducted during the Spring or early Fall.

The safety inspection consists of

  • a physical inspection of the premises (office/workplace, common premises, student facilities etc.). Normally, the management of ITA, the local safety representative, a representative from the staff/students and a representative from the Technical department of UiO are present during the inspection.
  • an electronic survey in Nettskjema, where staff/students answer a questionnaire concerning their workplaces, and where they can provide feedback if they wish. 

Staff and students receive an e-mail where they are invited to participate.

The safety inspection results in a report. The report will be reviewed in the local working environment committe (LWEC), where a representative of the Technical Department at UiO will be present. Some of the work in the committee will be based on this report.
