the reform of the occupational health safety system lo s assessment
The reform of the occupational health & safety system – LO’s assessment
  • Top-down, emphasising the efforts ot the system
  • Puts emphasisis on finding ”the worst cases” – this is okay, but:
    • The reform lacks the all-inclusive efforts of the companies themselves
    • There are only a few specific suggestions on how to strengthen the all-inclusive efforts of the companies,
    • A large group of companies are left in the lurch for up to 7 years.
