Work environment management and liabilities by the Work Environment Act (English)
Abstract [en]

This study deals with work environment from a legal perspective. The study includes legislative history, legislation today and one empirical study. The legislation that concerns work environment (health and safety) in Sweden today is found in the Swedish Work Environment Act (WEA), the Work Environment Ordinance (WEO), Provisions issued by the Work Environment Authority, related legislations and also collective agreements. The WEA, passed by the parliament in 1977, came into force on the 1st of July 1978 and it defines the framework for Provisions issued by the Work Environment Authority, which is an authority superintended by the Swedish government. These Provisions contain more detailed stipulations and obligations with reference to the working environment. The WEO contains certain supplementary rules. The Work Environment Authority supervises the obedience to the legislation.

The first work environment act was created in 1889 because of too many work accidents. By the year of 1929 the work environment act was focused on work diseases in consequence of dangerous substances such as asbestos and silicosis. Partly because of the legislation, there are no big problems in the physical work environment today. Sweden has one of the most physically safe work environments in the world today. The present problem is instead the psychosocial work environment because it is experienced individually.

An empirical interview study shows that employers and employees are satisfied with the work environment at Karlstad University.
