The Main Occupational Health and Safety Committee (HAMU) is the university’s supreme occupational health and safety body. The Main Occupational Health and Safety Committee plays an important role in that it lays down and coordinates the university’s occupational health and safety efforts at a general level, across the faculties and the administration and in collaboration with the Main Liaison Committee. The Main Occupational Health and Safety Committee discusses the details of the occupational health and safety themes with a view to advising the senior management team.
HAMU consists of the rector, who is chair, an occupational health and safety representative and a management representative from each faculty and the administration as well as one Ph.D. representative and a student representative.
The occupational health and safety representatives in HAMU are elected by and from among the members of the individual Faculty Occupational Health and Safety Committees/Administration Occupational Health and Safety Committee (FAMU/AAMU).
The management representatives are appointed by Rector.
The members of HAMU contribute to raising the standards of the university’s overall occupational health and safety work based on their knowledge of and experience with the faculties and the administration’s occupational health and safety work.
