Work safety organization; request for an exception

In occupational safety, companies are required by law to take certain measures, e.g. various persons must be appointed, such as occupational safety specialists or company physicians. Deviations must be approved by the responsible trade supervisory office.


Employers are generally required to appoint company physicians and occupational safety specialists, e.g. safety engineers, technicians or foremen. These specialists support the employer in ensuring that the regulations governing the safety and health protection of employees are applied in accordance with the respective operating conditions, that safety at the workplace is improved through the implementation of occupational health and safety findings, and that all employees in the company behave in a safety-conscious manner. Company physicians and occupational safety specialists must be specially qualified for these activities. The time required for their activities depends essentially on the number of employees and the risks of accidents and health hazards in the company.
