The occupational health service

The occupational health service should advise employers and employees and contribute in the work with preventive health, environment and safety.

HiOA is required to have an occupational health service (BHT) in accordance with the provisions of Section 3-3 of the Working Environment Act and the Regulations on Organization, Management and Employee Participation, Chapter 13. BHT shall assist the employer, employee and safety representative in their work to create safe and healthy working conditions.

BHT has compulsory attendance in the working environment committee. The occupational health service must have a free and independent position.


HiOA has an agreement on occupational health service with  Stamina Helse.

The Department of HR is responsible for the agreement with the occupational health service. The HR Director Geir Haugstveit, is HR's contact person in matters relating to the agreement.


If you wish to get in touch with BHT, please contact the HR head of section at the faculty or the HR Director  Geir Haugstveit in the Department for HR.

For workplace assessments or dialogue meetings in connection with absence due to illness, contact the local  HMS-koordinator.
