Occupational health and safety and well-being at work
The goal of occupational health and safety work is to make sure that the working conditions are safe and healthy and that the employees are feeling well. In practice, this means identifying and preventing various risks and hazards – both physical and psychosocial – specific to the sector in question. Occupational health and safety and related operations are governed by various laws, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Work Safety Supervision Act and the Occupational Health Care Act. But above all, occupational health and safety work is about cooperation in the workplace and about the interaction between the employer and the employees.
