Dear user, thank you for using the self-service environment of the Working Life information system (TEIS) under the Labour Inspectorate. The services offered by this system will be further developed, thus its appearance and content may change over time.
Firstly, we would like to point out that the use of the TEIS self-service environment and one of its main features – the risk assessment tool – is not mandatory. It is still possible to forward all materials, including the risk assessment, to the Labour Inspectorate by e-mail or paper-based mail. However, we do recommend using the TEIS self-service environment as it makes the exchange of information, registration and supervision easier for all parties.
In accordance with clause 13 (1) 3) of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), an employer is required to organise the risk assessment of the working environment. This means that the preparation of a risk assessment as such is mandatory but its format has not been specified. The mapping and management of hazards is important. The objective of the risk assessment tool is to provide employers a free and easy way to fulfil this obligation and to ensure the safety of themselves and their employees. The system displays to the employer the hazards related to their field of activity and provides typical measures to mitigate these hazards. The main target group is small- and medium-sized enterprises for whom finding a risk assessment service provider may be a significant additional cost. A member of the management board, a working environment specialist appointed by the employer, or another authorised person can use the tool to map the hazards present at the working environment and, based on the results of the mapping, prepare an action plan for addressing the hazards – for mitigating, preventing and avoiding them. The time spent on hazard mapping and preparing the action plan depends on the field of activity of a particular enterprise and the current state of the working environment.
We hope that with the self-service environment of the Working Life information system and the risk assessment tool we can make the working environment safer for everyone.
