Abstract [en]

Every year thousands of accidents that affect the environment take place in Sweden. In these accidents the incident commander has the responsibility for the operations until the effort is over. During this time the incident commander should have environmental and health officers to give support and practical advice to limit the environmental effects. This study was based on a questionnaire that was sent out to 100 different environmental and health offices, which is approximately a third of the nation’s municipalities. The aim was to see how these offices cooperate with the fire and rescue services, and also how they work to be prepared for an environmental accident so the effects will be as small as possible. The answering frequency was 71 % and showed that the municipalities work in very different ways. Some of the environmental and health offices, 23 %, have routine cooperation with the fire and rescue service. Some of them work with risk management about, 50 %, but other parts of emergency prevention vary. The conclusions are that in many municipalities a better cooperation between the involved participants needs to take place so that the effects on the environment from an accident can decrease. Cooperation is important not least in smaller municipalities where they have fewer personnel and accidents might be more unusual.
