Abstract

Working environment legislation has been more extensive in the Nordic countries than in other countries in two areas. There have been extensive requirements for addressing the working environment in companies, which have included involvement and cooperation and the procedures to be used in local working environment activities. In addition, there are requirements for the psychosocial work environment and the organizational work environment. The chapter presents similarities and differences in regulation. Furthermore, strengths and weaknesses of the regulation of the working environment for everyday practice are discussed.
