WORK CATEGORISATION RECOGNISES FOUR DEGREES OF WORK LOAD
1. category – minimum health risk
There are minimum or no factors which affect the health of employees.
2. category – acceptable health risk
The risk of the work load having an effect on the employee’s health is acceptable and doesn’t exceed the limits prescribed by legal regulations.
3. category – significant health risk
The work load exceeds the limits. Replacement technical and organisation measures need to be immediately taken at the workplace. Employees face the risk of suffering a job-related illness.
4. category – high health risk
The limits are significantly exceeded, increasing the rate of job-related illnesses and injuries. Some workplace factors may have an adverse effect on employees’ health. There can be recurrent job-related illnesses. The employer must observe a series of preventive measures at the workplace.
