Abstract [sv]

Butiksanställda, i synnerhet anställda inom elektronikbutiker, riskerar dagligen att utsättas för brott på sin arbetsplats. Denna risk kan leda till en minskad trygghet bland de anställda. Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur den upplevda tryggheten såg ut bland butiksanställda inom en hemelektronikkedja i Sverige. Denna studie tillämpade en kvantitativ ansats, med sårbarhetsmodellen som teoretisk utgångspunkt. Data samlades in via en enkätundersökning. I studien deltog 173 butiksanställda mellan 18 och 42 år (M= 24,64, SD= 4,59) varav 79,2% (n=137) var män och 20,8% (n=36) kvinnor. Resultaten visade att majoriteten av de anställda upplevde sig vara trygga, och att tryggheten inte skiljde sig beroende på individens könstillhörighet, erfarenhet eller butikens placering. En större andel av de anställda som hade en hög grad av utbildning om trakasserier och kränkningar upplevde sig trygga, jämfört med den andel anställda som hade en låg grad av utbildning. En större andel kvinnor än män ansåg att dubbelbemanning, en väl upplyst butik, larmbågar samt larmknapp bidrog till deras upplevda trygghet. En övergripande slutsats var att de anställda inom hemelektronikkedjan upplever sig trygga.

Abstract [en]

Store employees, especially employees in electronics stores, daily risk being exposed to crimes in their workplace. This risk may lead to decreased safety among employees. The aim of the study was to investigate how the perceived safety looked among store employees in a home electronics chain in Sweden. The current study applied a quantitative approach with the vulnerability model as theoretical basis. Data was collected through a survey. In this study, 173 store employees participated who were between 18 and 42 years (M= 24,64, SD= 4,59), of which 79,2% (n= 137) were men and 20,8% (n= 36) women. The results showed that the majority of employees felt safe, and that safety did not differ depending on the individual's gender, level of experience or the store's location. A larger proportion of the employees who had a higher degree of education about harassment and violations felt safe, compared to the proportion of employees who had a lower degree of education. A larger proportion of women than men considered that double staffing, a well-lit shop, alarm bows and alarm buttons contributed to their perceived safety. An overall conclusion was that the employees in the home electronics chain overall feel safe when at work.
