About SÄKU

(The Swedish Safety Culture Network)

Who are we?
 

The Swedish Safety Culture Network (SÄKU) is since 2013 a non-profit association with the aim of being an industry-wide network that offers competence development for people working within the areas of risk, health and occupational safety to exchange experience with each other.

Vision and goal
 

Our vision is to be the leading industry-wide network in Sweden where it concerns the Occupational Safety Culture. Our goal is to be an organization where learning is the central core and where we provide our members with a platform that contributes to the competence development by research and practical applications in the areas of safety culture, risk, human factors, occupational safety and health.  

Why safety culture & human factors? 
 

To work systematically and continuously with safety culture and human factors issues within an organization are two basic steps to minimize accidents and problems in the occupational safety domain while developing a resilient operation. Accidents, sick leave and problems with the occupational safety are costly and can also affect an organization's reputation for both customers and the general public. Successful businesses invest in safety culture and human factors as they see a direct link between safety culture, human factors and profitable sustainability both in terms of efficiency and quality.

 

Our GDPR Policy
 

Since we are a non-profit organization that arranges meetings with people and manages membership, we must handle personal data in order to be able to conduct our business. The information is only used by the association within the framework of our business. At the Swedish Safety Culture Network it is the representative of the secretariat who controls all personal data.

 

When someone subscribes to the mailing list to get information about the association's events or registers as a new user, the person’s name, organization and email address are stored in a register. At the same time, the person is registered with their name, organization and email address in another register to compile the number of users registered and possible allergies. This information is saved for a maximum of two years and will then be anonymized with the aim of creating statistical data for the number of visitors per event. If a person who registers for an event is not on our mailing list, this person will be added to the mailing list. If a non-member registers for an event, the information related to invoicing is saved for a maximum of two months after the invoice has been sent out. The contact person for each organisation’s membership is responsible for communicating important information to all of its members to facilitate and create networking.

 

The membership of the contact person for each organization is served to the other members in order to facilitate contact creation and networking.

 

Membership billing information is saved until the next year's membership renewal time. This information is then re-saved for the coming year if it is still valid for the member. The Accounting Act may affect the stated periods to be longer if necessary.

 

All personal information, for example from registration or the mailing list, can be deleted, adjusted or requested for viewing upon request by contacting the person responsible for personal data (the secretariat). The personal information is routinely deleted if the e-mail address no longer exists or when the concerned person wishes to leave the association, the mailing list or have their user account deleted.
