In Sweden, all employers have a responsibility according to the Work Environment Act to do everything necessary to prevent the employee from being subjected to illness or accidents. Both worrying about being victimised and actually being subjected to threats and hatred at work entail a mental strain that negatively affects the working environment. The employer must be aware of this and prevent it as well as possible.
If you as an employee feel that you do not get what you are entitled to, you can turn to the safety delegate at your workplace.
Responsible for the working environment
The working environment efforts include the employer regularly assessing risks and addressing risks that have been identified. An action plan should be in place for the work environment efforts which describes what is to be done, who is to do it and when it should be finished. The employer is also obliged to have a plan for first aid and crisis support. At some workplaces, there are also security coordinators to report to.
Check with your employer which procedures are in place and what should be done if you are a victim of crime at work.
