Technical occupational safety and health encompasses every area which affects the safety of employees during their work.
The Safety and Health at Work Act governs the basic occupational safety obligations of the employer, the obligations and rights of employees and the monitoring of occupational safety according to this law for all fields of activity. It is further specified by a range of occupational safety and health ordinances. Technical regulations and medical occupational regulations can also supplement and specify the requirements of the ordinances.
