Occupational health and accidents
Health hazards and occupational accidents can be prevented
An employer can prevent health and accident hazards arising from work through systematic work monitoring and with the help of the occupational health care service. If, despite precautions, an employee falls ill because of work or has an accident at work, the occurrence must be investigated and action taken to prevent it from happening again. The occupational safety and health authority must always be notified of serious occupational accidents and occupational diseases. Occupational accident notifications are the responsibility of the employer, while notifications on suspected occupational diseases and work-related illnesses will be submitted by a physician.
