Abstract [sv]

I Sverige uppskattas kostnaden för olycksfall och ohälsa orsakat av arbetet till en årlig kostnad på 164 miljarder kronor. Arbetsmiljöverkets föreskrifter om kemiska arbetsmiljörisker ställer höga krav på hur kemiska ämnen hanteras och att riskbedömningar ska genomföras. Tillgängliga resurser för att genomföra exponeringsbedömningar av kemiska ämnen är idag mycket begränsad. Skillnaden mellan hur riskbedömningar ska gå till enligt regelverket och hur det utförs i praktiken är stor, bland annat beroende på att krav inte alltid ställs från myndigheten. Att använda exponeringsmodeller enligt Arbetsmiljöverkets och Europeiska Kemikaliemyndighetens rekommendationer är ett kostnadseffektivt alternativ. Drivkraften för att så ska ske tycks vara svag i Sverige jämfört med andra länder i Europa.

Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: A considerable amount of money is invested annually in workplaces to promote creative, comfortable and safe work environments. The processes and effects of these investments are however not sufficiently studied.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this article is to examine work environment investment processes and identify organizational critical elements for optimizing investment in terms of occupational health and safety effects for employees.

METHODS: Twelve case studies were conducted in different sectors. The data was collected through interviews, by studying available documents, and, in several cases, observations and measurement of hazards by means of the PIMEX-method. 

RESULTS: The empirical results yielded seven different critical elements for work environment investment processes. The critical elements identified were: identifying the need, risk assessment, involvement of staff, consultation with OHS expertise, procurement and delivery, implementation and training of workers, and evaluation.

CONCLUSIONS: The critical elements have wide similarities with steps outlined in Swedish Work Environment Management processes, and ideas described in the Plan-Do-Act-Check model. If organizations follow this process, they are provided with improved possibilities for maximizing invested money for a safer working environment.
