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.
