Nikhef is committed to good working conditions. A safe, healthy and pleasant working environment contributes to job satisfaction. This is beneficial to work performance, and lowers the risk of sickness absenteeism, accidents and calamities.
In addition, occupational health & safety legislation requires that employer and employees work together in the area of Occupational Safety, Health and Well-being. This means that the employer is responsible for good work conditions.
The department of Health & Safety takes care thereof. It also supports the technical departments in the area of safety and radiation protection, and it organises the in-house emergency response service.
