The incorporation of specific laws and regulations in different countries has contributed to strengthening prevention and well-being in the work environment. In each country in the world, there is a different conception of occupational risks, which depends, among many factors, on the culture and the level of economic and industrial development in which the society finds itself. In this post, we will focus on Spain and its latest update of the Occupational Risk Prevention Law.
We want to emphasize Article 21 of the Occupational Risk Prevention Law, because it focuses on the protection of workers who work in the most dangerous environments. Let’s know its fundamental points!
For health and safety to be effective in the workplace, the Occupational Risk Prevention Law in Spain establishes a series of requirements and obligations that both employees and contractors must comply with.
Employees must comply with the specific obligations of their job, respect the safety and hygiene measures adopted and execute the orders and instructions of their superiors. For their part, managers have the responsibility of guaranteeing safety and health at work, providing information and training to workers, and developing an occupational risk prevention plan.
In short, for the entire mechanism that supports the prevention of occupational risks, it is essential that everyone respect the standards established by law and work together to promote a company culture that prioritizes safety and health at work.
