Occupational health and safety cooperation term of officeThe occupational health and safety cooperation term of office is defined in calendar years. The term is two calendar years, unless a longer term is agreed upon in the unions' sectoral agreement or locally in the workplace's occupational safety committee. The term may be no longer than four calendar years.
The term of office for occupational health and safety cooperation personnel is as long as the occupational health and safety cooperation term, with the exception of the occupational safety manager appointed by the employer, who is appointed for an indefinite term.
Occupational health and safety electionsAt the occupational health and safety elections, the employees elect an occupational safety representative and two deputy representatives to represent them. Additional members of the occupational safety committee are also elected in larger workplaces if needed. If the election of occupational safety ombudsmen has also been agreed upon in the workplace, they will also be elected at the same time.
