Reporting av incident or an injury

Ouch, Oops, Hello, Not OK is our system for injury and incident reporting. Here you can also send in suggestions on how University of Gävle can become an even better place to study and work at for all students.

The University has zero tolerance for discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment and victimisation.


If you as a student have a workstudy related injury, the University must report that. The responsible manager must write a claim together with you and the student senior safety representative. A workstudy related injury is a personal physical or mental injury or illness that is a result of studying or the study conditions. It can also be a accident on the way to or from the University.

Report your injury or incident (you need to translate the page to English in your browser)


Oops refers to a incident (physical or mental) in which no one was injured which could have led to an injury. Events based on organisational and social factors, such as lack of respect between students or between students and staff, can also be seen as incidents. The responsible manager, in consultation with you and the student senior safety representative must write the incident report.

Discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment and victimisation

Discrimination occurs at the University if a student or someone who has applied for a course or programme at University of Gävle, is treated disfavourably and when this disadvantage is related to sex, ethnicity, religion or other belief, sexual orientation, transggender identity or expression, age or disability. Inadequate accessibility, harassment, sexual harassment and instructions to discriminate are also forms of discrimination.

Harassment refers to such conduct that violates a person's dignity when it is related to one of the grounds of discrimination listed above.

Sexual harassment can be about touches, jokes, suggestions and invitations that have sexual allusions and that are unwelcome and derogatory.

Victimisation is unpleasant or negative actions directed at one or more students in an abusive manner and that can lead to ill health or to the victim being excluded from the community in the work or study group.
