Working environment


To what degree do organizations comply with the legislation on a safe working environment? What are the main workplace challenges? Fafo has conducted several national surveys of health, safety and environment (HSE) conditions in Norwegian workplaces. The research includes work organization, training, use of protective equipment and employee influence on own work.

Following the comprehensive immigration from new EU member countries, specific investigations have been directed towards HSE consequences in selected industries (such as construction, shipyards, food industry and cleaning). Work environment was also a major issue in the sector studies of the cleaning industry and the bar and nightlife industry. Three other research areas that are related to work environment are monitoring and control of employees, notification of unacceptable circumstances in the workplace (whistle-blowing) and workplace violence and intimidation.
