Healthy working conditions

How can employees be protected against working conditions that could harm their health?

Every year, the Health Council publishes advisory reports on a large number of substances which employees might be exposed to at the workplace. The Council also issues advice on occupational risks such as employees’ physical and psychosocial burden at work.

Continual activities within this focus area include:

  • identifying risks at the workplace
  • advising on protection against harmful substances
  • advising on protection against carcinogenic substances
  • advising on protection against reproductive toxins (chemicals that can damage the reproductive system or offspring).
