Appeal to the Ministry of Labour, Health and Social Affairs
According to the official statistics of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, 41 people died at their workplaces, while 61 sustained injuries during 2014. In response to this, the Ministry of Health, which is also a Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs/Protection, has put forward a work monitoring initiative. According to this initiative, only the companies which themselves requested monitoring would be checked and this would have a recommendatory, not inspectionary character. The presented model of ‘’Work Inspection’’, has drawn relevant criticism from the trade/labor unions, as well as from different groups of the society.
