Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to make a survey of a larger company in Sweden to analyze if it complied to the stipulated Systematic Work Environment Management rules in Sweden. The company chosen was Hennes & Mauritz. The key question was to see if the company was examining and judging the risks, developing handling plans and if they were making yearly follow ups so that problems could be attended to. Further, I also wanted to examine if there was lack of competence within different departments as well as give some substantiate proposals on educations in Systematic Work Environment Management. The method used to investigate this was interviews and observations on how the Systematic Work Environment Management was handled in the company. The interview study included ten different directors of stores. The observation was made during two weeks at the headquarter following the daily work concerning the Systematic Work Environment Management from management´s point of view. The result of the study and the observation showed that in general H&M is working very well with the Systematic Work Environment Management at the store level. The local managers considered that they had sufficient knowledge but they were lacking continuous education and updates in the area. Specifically, the results showed that there is some lack of knowledge in the field of responsibility for work environment and that the local management doesn’t get the yearly education according to top management´s intention. A short suggestion on a yearly educational plan in Systematic Work Environment Management has been added to the report based on the results in the survey. A reasonable time for this education is one day per year to update the responsible local management in the area of Systematic Work Environment Management.
