Membership and application
Companies, organizations and students (individuals) that have an interest in safety culture, security, risk, human factors and work environment can join the association. Each membership body is to appoint a responsible member representative and one or more contact persons.
If a company or an organization becomes member of SÄKU, all of its employees are automatically covered by the SÄKU membership. Temporarily hired personnel, contractors and consultants who work solely for a member organization and who have five or fewer employees are also covered by the membership.
The association fee is paid every calendar year and consists of a membership fee which is VA free and a service charge that is exclusive of VAT. The membership and service fee amounts are decided by the association’s management at the general meeting. The association fee is based on the size of the member organization regarding the number of employees in order to make it more fair. The association fee for membership for the year 2022 is shown in the box below.
The membership fee is used to cover the expenses of goods and services that only the association's members have access to or use. Examples of this can be the management of the member part of the website and administration costs to the extent that the administration works with the member business. The service fee is used to cover the cost of goods and services that relate to non-members. Examples of this are costs for open events and the time that the secretariat works to organize open events and to handle the "open" / external website.
The association fee shall be paid no later than May 30 each year in order for the association member to have the right to vote at the general meeting. Each member has one vote at the general meeting. By proxy, a member is able to vote for a maximum of one other member.
