Sector groups and branch committees

Sectoral operations are of major importance in the operations of the Centre for Occupational Safety. Our services are designed largely in sectoral working groups – sector groups and branch committees. There are four sector groups: the Industrial Group, the Service Group, the Municipal Group and the Transport and Logistics Group. The Industrial Group and the Transport and Logistics Group also have 20 branch-specific committees. There is also one specialist group: Working Life Experts on Substance Abuse.


Occupational health and safety work is sectoral

Occupational health and safety and well-being at work are different in different sectors. That is why various working groups are also needed. The sector groups and branch committees that operate under the Centre for Occupational Safety's Board have a representation from the employer, clerical employee and employee unions from each sector.

The aim of the working groups is to develop the working life in their own sectors. A specialist from the Centre for Occupational Safety is responsible for the practical implementation of the projects, and this specialist also acts as the secretary of the working group
