Working conditions

How can employees be protected from working conditions that could jeopardise their health?

Every year, the Health Council publishes advisory reports concerning numerous substances to which employees might be exposed in the workplace. The Council also issues advice on occupational risks such as employees’ physical and psychosocial burden at work.

Continual activities within this focus area include:

  • identifying risks in the workplace;
  • advising on protection against harmful substances;
  • advising on protection against carcinogenic substances;
  • advising on protection against reproductive toxins (chemicals that can harm the reproductive system or offspring).
