~ Interviews with students of LUNA ~

It is time for another interview. This time with the chairperson of the Environment, Health and Safety Committee moreover the Chief Safety Officer (HSSO) of LUNA, Leo Östman.

“The HMS (Environment, Health and Safety) committee exists to coordinate student representatives in matters regarding the work environment throughout the faculty. It consists of representatives from each study council, the student safety representatives or SSO, and a chair, the HSSO. There are also many more fun acronyms, though mostly in decently technical Swedish, for anyone interested in having a say in their own study environment. During our meetings we mostly sit around and talk about what has been going on at the department level, where most of the work done by us representatives happens. We all sit in HMS committees at our departments, where we bring up whatever issues concern the students, or just complain. Additionally, we conduct a yearly survey regarding the psychosocial health of the students. This is done to find out where things are good or could be improved. It’s really actually tons of fun.”
