Occupational health and safety work is sectoral

Working in the transport sector, for example, is very different from working in the construction sector. The risks and hazards of the work are different in different sectors, as are the work communities, work processes, methods and practices. As a result, the priorities for occupational safety and employee well-being and occupational health and safety work are different depending on the sector. The Centre for Occupational Safety wants to give workplaces the possibility to do occupational health and safety work while taking the specific features of different sectors into account.


Working groups develop occupational health and safety in different sectors

There are four sector groups operating under the Centre for Occupational Safety, and the Industrial Group and the Transport and Logistics Group also have 20 branch-specific committees. Their aim is to develop the occupational health and safety work in their own sectors.
The working groups' sectoral tasks include conveying information, planning training, and preparing various projects that develop the working life in the sector.
