Januari 1st of 2009 was the day that changed tee
coordination of the Swedish building work
environment. Big changes were made in the law of
working environment and the related regulation, this
was made as the result of high mortality and a
branch of industry often hit with injuries. Two types
of building work environments coordinators were
appointed, one for planning and design and one for
the execution of construction work. The two
disciplines of coordinators are meant to
complement each other through out the project and
in that way ensure a good and healthy environment
for both construction workers and the future
In this thesis, a company in Stockholm is being
viewed to see how they work to ensure the working
environment is good. The study is based on
interviews with staff currently working as a
coordinator in either phase. The result shows that
there are good possibilities for a well functioning
building work environment. The ambitions of the
coordinator of the executing contributing early in
the projects exists and is applied when possible.
There are room for development in the feedback of
experience and also in the handover.
If the handover would be implemented the way it is
meant to be, the flow of information would be
assured and thus unforeseen risks would decrease
leading to a safer building work environment.
