Health and Safety at the Workplace

The organisation for which you work is under the obligation to guarantee a safe and healthy working environment for its workers. In other words, workers are entitled to work in Conditions of Safety and Health that:

  • Protect them from chemical, physical and biological risks;

  • Protect them from risks related to the use of equipment and working methods.

For this you are entitled to:

  • Information;

  • Training;

  • Be consulted on what you think about the protection due you.

There are many special rules that apply in any workplace where there are specific risks for workers.

In these cases, you must check whether in your workplace there is a trade union representative for health and safety.
