Working environment legislation has been more extensive in the Nordic countries than in other countries in two areas.

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.
