Accident at Akademiplatsen

The window fell from the seventh floor of the H section of the building straight down onto Akademiplatsen.

Akademiska Hus blocked off the area to clear debris. At the same time, work began on investigating how the accident could have occurred.

A review of all openable windows in the Sandgärdet building has been ordered and this will commence at the beginning of next week. In connection with the review, safety locks will be mounted on the windows wherever these may not already be in place.

Until then, Akademiska Hus is asking for windows be kept closed if they do not have a safety lock.

The Swedish Work Environment Authority has been contacted and the university has registered an incident report.
