Previously, occupational health and safety law had been put off until 1 July 2016 and then the law, which was projected to be enacted 1 July 2017, has been postponed again.
Enforcement of the most critical articles has been put off until 7 July 2020.
According to occupational law enacted in 2012;
– Employers who employ less than 10 employees in less dangerous occupations (accountant, estate agent, solicitor, grocery, greengrocer etc.),
had been supposed to specialize in occupational health and safety until 7 July 2017 by having training in universities.
Thus, enterprises will make their offices into a safe place for employees.
– Furthermore, employers who employ more than 10 less than 50 in less dangerous occupations had been supposed to come to an agreement with an occupational safety specialist and an occupational physician in order to provide safety and health conditions in their workplaces.
This law was supposed to be enacted in July 2017; however, it was put off 3 years which means it was put off 7 July 2020.
On the other hand, according to appendant article, employers who employ less than 50 employees should provide occupational health and safety on their own by having training and they will not be able to provide outsourced services.
If they wish, employers may impose that duty to their current employees so they can lower the cost.
If General Assembly of TGNA accepts Occupational Health and Safety Law with new regulations,
-Artisans and careerists who employ 10 and less than 10 employees,
-Small scale employers who employ less than 50 employees do not need to have any training until 2020 about occupational security which is a vital subject for their employees.
