Hello fellow I:are,
My name is Alexandra Benckert and I am your Safety Representative. My role as Safety Representative exists for you to feel safe, welcome and included at the Chapter for Industrial Engineering and Management at KTH. This includes all types of safety, physical as well as psychological. I work primarily with GenI, our committee for equality, diversity and equal treatment, as well as the Board and the other Safety Representatives at THS in order to create a chapter environment that is as enjoyable as possible. Afterall, the most important part of the Chapter is you, which is why I am here for you above all, if you ever feel the need to share anything. It could be something that you experienced that made you feel unsafe, an idea on how the Chapter could be improved or if you just want to unburden your heart.
If you wish to know more about me, I am also a student at the I-program. I am currently in my third year and I have many different work experiences at the Chapter. Last year I held the role of Vice President for the Chapter Board where I worked with questions regarding well-being and inclusion. These are aspects that lie close to my heart and this is why I have chosen to continue my work, now through the role of your Safety Representative.
Finally I want to remind you, new as well as old chapter members, that the Chapter is here for you to have fun, meet new friends and create memories for life. Everyone that works to make the Chapter better is doing so in order to make your time at KTH as great as possible. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that you know that if you would ever receive a negative experience at the Chapter, there is always someone that wants to listen in order to help you and improve the Chapter.
