Two universities of different types (namely a large, old one and a smaller and newer one) were taken as examples. Safety and health problems were detected and analysed in both institutions. Recommendations for OSH improvement and implementation (e.g. improvement of operational, organisational and personal structure) were made on the basis of the investigation.Optimised collaboration of representatives for safety and health within the universities (e.g. safety officers, officers responsible for first aid or radiation protection, occupational physicians, OSH experts) is expected to accelerate and promote the integration of safety and health into education of students and staff practice.
