Issued pursuant to
Section 7, Paragraph four of the Labour Protection Law

I. General Provisions

1. This Regulation prescribes the procedures, by which the internal supervision of the work environment is to be performed (including evaluation of the work environment risk).

2. Internal supervision of the work environment shall consist of the following stages:

2.1. the planning of internal supervision of the work environment;

2.2. the evaluation of the work environment risk, including the evaluation of risk in work performed by pregnant women and women who have recently given birth;

2.3. the implementation of internal supervision of the work environment; and

2.4. the inspection and improvement of internal supervision of the work environment.

3. This Regulation shall not apply to those activities in emergency situations, which are performed in conformity with the Civil Defence Law and inevitably conflict with the requirements of this Regulation.

4. The internal supervision of the work environment in an undertaking shall be performed by a labour protection specialist appointed by the employer or employer himself or herself if there are no more than 10 employees in the undertaking and the employer fulfils the duties of a labour protection specialist.

5. A person who performs the internal supervision of the work environment shall be trained in accordance with regulatory enactments regarding training in labour protection issues.

6. If an undertaking does not have a relevant labour protection specialist, the employer shall involve in the internal supervision of the work environment a specialist or an institution competent in labour protection issues.

7. The employer, the labour protection specialist, the competent specialist or the competent institution, in performing the internal supervision of the work environment, shall co-operate with a trusted representative or a representative of the employees and involve the employees.

8. The employer shall be liable for compliance with this Regulation. The employer shall ensure the resources required for the internal supervision of the work environment (for instance, personnel, financial, technical resources).

9. The involvement of a competent specialist or a competent institution in the internal supervision of the work environment shall not reduce the responsibility of the employer for the compliance with the labour protection and health protection requirements.

10. The compliance with this Regulation shall be controlled by the State Labour Inspection.

II. Planning of Internal Supervision of the Work Environment

11. The employer shall at least once a year plan the internal supervision of the work environment, in taking decisions regarding the organisation of labour protection issues in the undertaking, resources necessary for labour protection, responsible persons and other issues related to the internal supervision of the work environment.

12. The employer shall plan the internal supervision of the work environment in co-operation with the labour protection specialist, the trusted representative or the representative of the employees, taking into account:

12.1. the type of activity, nature of the work and working conditions of the undertaking;

12.2. the work environment risk factors existing in the undertaking and the results of the work environment risk evaluation;

12.3. warnings, instructions and decisions of the State Labour Inspection pertaining to labour protection issues in the undertaking; and

12.4. the technical and financial resources of the undertaking.

13. The employer shall provide for and include the planning of internal supervision of the work environment in the planning of economic activity.

III. Evaluation of Work Environment Risks

14. In evaluating the work environment risk, the employer shall ensure:

14.1. the inspection of the work environment and the workplaces therein or the types of work, determining the work environment factors existing there and detecting factors, which cause or may cause risk to the safety and health of employees (Annex 1);

14.2. measurements of work environment factors where appropriate in order to determine whether the environment factor causes risk to the safety and health of employees; and

14.3. determination of the work environment factors, which cause or may cause risks to the safety and health of employees.

15. The employer is entitled not to use the form referred to in Annex 1 to this Regulation for the documentation of inspection of a workplace if he or she, in inspecting the workplaces, uses documents, which are more appropriate for the nature of economic activity of the undertaking and which take into account all the work environment factors referred to in Annex 1 to this Regulation.

16. If work environment measurements for the evaluation of the work environment risk have been made by an accredited testing laboratory, the employer shall take into account the testing results of the relevant laboratory when planning labour protection measures.

17. The employer shall ensure the evaluation of work environment risk at all workplaces, except in cases where there are similar conditions at workplaces (for example, similar work equipment, layout of premises, nature of work). If the conditions of work are similar, a work environment risk evaluation of one workplace or type of work shall be sufficient, taking into account the individual differences of each employee and each workplace.

18. The work environment risk shall be evaluated not less than once a year, as well as:

18.1. when practically commencing another type of activity;

18.2. if any changes in the work environment have occurred (for example, work procedures, methods, work equipment, the use or production of substances and mixtures has changed, the workplace has undergone substantial modifications);

20. The work environment risk in an undertaking may be evaluated by the employer, a labour protection specialist or a competent specialist or a competent institution invited by the employer, involving in the risk evaluation the trusted representative or the representative of the employees and the employee who works at the relevant workplace and manages it.

21. In evaluating the work environment risk, a person who performs it shall take into account:

21.1. the level of the probability (duration, frequency) of the occurrence of the work environment risk and of the seriousness of the consequences of the risk, observing all work environment factors, which cause or may cause risk to the safety and health of employees, possible interaction thereof and the results of the performed measurements of the work environment;

25. During re-evaluation of the work environment risk a person who performs it shall organise repeated measurements of the work environment, taking into account the results of the previous risk evaluation and the requirements of regulatory enactments regarding the periodicity of measurements. Repeated measurements of the work environment shall not be performed if it arises from the results of the previous measurements.

26. In re-evaluating the work environment risk, a person who performs it shall review the results of the previous evaluation of the work environment risk and, if the situation has not changed and the results of the previous risk evaluation correspond to the present situation, new documentation of risk evaluation need not be developed, but notes in the existing risk evaluation regarding the correspondence of the situation on the day of risk evaluation shall be made.
