Health, safety and environment (HSE)

The health, safety and environment (HSE) work at the Faculty of Medicine follow the goals and principles for HSE-work at NTNU. Through ensuring that employees’ tasks are safe, meaningful and conducive to the development of their personalities, NTNU seeks to create a work environment that fosters creativity as well as constructive and critical thinking.

Support and promote

NTNU seeks to offer students a good learning environment by ensuring that courses, welfare provisions and the physical environment are adapted to their needs. The work and learning environment must support and promote its users’ capacity to work and learn, safeguard their health and well-being, and protect them against work-related illnesses and accidents.


Environmental awareness should permeate all parts of the university’s activities. By conducting its operations in an environmentally friendly manner, NTNU shall work continuously to reduce the strain on the environment.

NTNU shall comply with existing environmental legislation, as well as existing legislation on work and learning environments.

HSE-work is very important in laboratories. Our Laboratory and workshop handbook  is incorporated as part of the core HSE systems. Here is NTNU's helpful demonstration video (.wmv) of laboratory work and safety:
