Safety delegate election

During the autumn of 2022 there will be held elections to select safety delegates for the 2023-2024 period.

Main content

At UiB safety delegates at all levels are elected, so the election is conducted in three parts:

•    Local safety delegates
•    Main safety delegates
•    The university’s main safety delegate

First the employees select their local safety delegate, then these will select their main safety delegate, which in turn select the university’s chief safety delegate.

All employees within the safety delegate area have the right to suggest candidates. Safety delegates should be selected among employees with experience and insight into the working conditions at the unit.
