The methods that were used for completing this study were a literature study about work environment and related legislation and a then a practical study. The practical study consisted of two parts, interviews with head of department and work environment representatives and a questionnaire among the employees. The results show a number of deficiencies in the systematic management of the work environment. In order to live up to the demands in the legislation the departments have to implement risk assessments at changes in the organization, implement annual follow-ups of the systematic management of the work environment, start to control completed measures and include psychological and social factors.
