Field workers employed outside the University of Oslo: Personnel who do not receive a salary from the University will NOT be covered by the University of Oslo insurance. They are responsible for their own insurance cover.

Students: Students have obligatory cover for occupational injury under the National Insurance Scheme. However, these rules do NOT provide complete coverage for occupational injury.

The Act relating to industrial injury does NOT apply to students.

The University is liable for injuries only in specific circumstances: damage caused due to unsafe procedures of University of Oslo employees and damage that may have occured as a result of technical error with equipment etc., during fieldwork.
