Having your health protected is one of the fundamental human rights.
Working conditions and environment have a strong effect on the health and well-being of employees. If employees’ occupational health isn’t controlled and managed correctly, these negative influences can result in a job-related illness and an increase in the rate of incapacity for work. As a consequence, this phenomenon is associated with a company’s increased financial costs and among other things, affects labour productivity.
The basic framework of requirements associated with Occupational-Services and protecting the health of employees is determined by legislation. Relevant legislation defines the modern approach in the Occupational-Medical Services field, i.e. preventing job-related illnesses and injuries. The responsibilities of employers and employees in the area of Occupational Health and Safety were defined with the view of creating optimum working conditions and a safe healthy working environment, and adjusting work to the employee’s abilities while taking their physical and mental health into account.
The aim of Occupational-Medical Services is to prevent job-related illnesses, injuries, and other diseases pertaining to the practice of a profession, in cooperation with the employer, employees, and their representatives.
► Occupational-medical care consists not only of preventive examinations for employees, but also consultation and regularly monitoring working conditions and environment.
► Legal regulations oblige all employees to conclude a written agreement on the provision of Occupational-Medical Services.
► By failing to meet or breaching statutory obligations or obligations imposed by a public health protection authority (PPH), the employer exposes themselves to the risk of these sanctions in particular: a fine of up to 2,000,000 CZK (PHP) office, regional labour inspectorate)
► The specialised part of Occupational-Medical Services-work categorisation is based on legislation which obligates the employer (or self-employed person) to categorise work performed at all their workplaces. According to this legislation, the employer must meet a set deadline for submitting this categorisation to the relevant Regional Health Authority (see § 37, Act No. 258/2000, Collection of Law, On Public Health Protection and amending certain related laws, as subsequently amended). First and foremost, work categorisation is an obligation and the first step to protecting the health of employees. Work categorisation is a tool for assessing the influence of the working environment on the health of employees.
► Whether or not a work categorisation meets the statutory requirements is determined by a public health protection authority, according to Act No. 258/2000, Collection of Laws, as subsequently amended. If these and other related statutory obligations are not met, the PHPA can impose a fine of up to 3,000,000 CZK.
