The employer is responsible for ensuring that the work carried out is in compliance with the Working Environment Act.
In all companies with 10 or more employees, the collaboration on working environment must take place in a Health and Safety Organisation (hereinafter HSO). HSO is an internal organisation of the working environment collaboration.
The key figures are the employer or their representative, elected occupational health and safety representatives, and appointed supervisors.
In companies with up to nine employees, there is no requirement to form an HSO. However, the working environment must be systematised, and the employer must ensure that the employees have the opportunity to make suggestions for the working environment. In addition, the employer must ensure that the employees receive information that is relevant to the working environment.
In all companies, there is a requirement to complete an annual working environment discussion.
At this working environment discussion, the employer, the HSO and/or the employees agree on how to cooperate on the working environment in the coming year. At the same time, it is assessed how the past year’s working environment work has gone.
