Workplace Ordinance: Exception

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

The Workplaces Ordinance lays down what the employer has to consider when setting up and operating workplaces with regard to the safety and health of employees. For example, requirements for work rooms, break, standby and sanitary rooms, lighting, ventilation and room temperature are regulated.

You, as an employer, may request from the competent authority in writing exemptions from the provisions of this Regulation if:

  • you take other equally effective measures, or
  • implementation of the provision would lead to a disproportionate hardship in individual cases and the derogation is compatible with the protection of employees.

In assessing the situation, the Authority must pay particular attention to the interests of smaller holdings.
