Abstract [en]

All Swedish companies are, according to The Work Environment Act, required to have asystematic work environment management (SWEM). This report studies the SWEM of a skiresort, in order to investigate whether all requirements in the provision are met or whether thecompany need to improve their work. This investigation was based on interviews andobservations on how management of the work environment is handled in the company atpresent. The aim is to create a foundation for a systematic management, helping the companyto improve its work environment management. The risks in the work environment wereinvestigated, assessed and categorized from A to D according to probability andconsequences. Measures to reduce or eliminate risks are suggested and measures which arenot taken immediately are noted in an action plan. 19 risks were found, eight were categorizedas B and eleven as C. The company fulfils the legislative requirements in two areas,distribution of assignments and follow up on SWEM. In two areas the requirements are notmet at all, having an action plan and occupational health services. In six areas more work isneeded. Most shortcomings are in reference to documentation of SWEM, but also knowledge.Knowledge is not taken charge of and new employees are not given as good introduction asthe company is able to. In spite of the lack of adhering fully to legislation, the company isheading towards a complete SWEM. The areas with a total shortcoming are few, while theareas with an ongoing work are several.
