Health and Safety

Health and welfare

The University of Twente attaches great importance to our staff members being able to perform their work with pleasure, in safety and in good health, in a healthy and safe working environment. This is why we have implemented a number of measures. Our working conditions policy, for instance, lays down regulations for workplace examinations, risk assessments and sickness absence counselling. In addition, we have passed various regulations on the topic of safe work.
With a view on improving our staff members' health and well-being, the UT also offers a variety of activities, including company sports, training courses, health checks, health weeks and a chair massage. We also have made a wealth of information available on living a healthy lifestyle.
The UT takes its health and safety responsibilities seriously. Our hope, and expectation, is that our staff members will act responsibly with respect to working in a safe and healthy manner and making use of all the university has on offer.
