According to the decree of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Republic of Belarus dated November 28, 2008 No. 175 on the approval of the instruction on the procedure for training, internship, instruction and testing of knowledge of workers on occupational safety and health
The heads of enterprises and organizations that have not passed the knowledge test on occupational safety and health issues may be held administratively liable (Article 9.17. Administrative Code of the Republic of Belarus).
According to the decree of the Ministry, employers are obliged by common law to reasonably take care of the safety of their employees. In addition, impose other general responsibilities, introduce specific responsibilities and create government bodies with the authority to regulate safety issues at the workplace: details of this may vary.
Usually, only after accidents, inspections, and obtaining instructions for rectifying defects, company managers are involved in the development of enterprise documentation on occupational safety and health. If they had done this earlier, they would have avoided many problems, including accidents. Both the order of work and the responsibilities of managers are determined in the process of developing documentation. First of all, the employer employs a specialist under occupational safety and health requirement to:
Often the functions of a specialist on occupational safety and health are performed by persons who are not adequately or not at all trained.
The result: in most enterprises there is no necessary safety documentation, not to mention the availability of permission to start (continue) implementation or operation with increased risk - the rules are simply ignored by the executives.
Business managers often have problems with labor inspectors.
The employer is obligated to create the working conditions at every workplace and in each unit in accordance with the regulations and guidelines, and is obliged to ensure compliance with statutory requirements regarding the rights of workers in occupational safety and health aspects.
For this, the employers must have a labor management system, namely:
Company managers, and specialists responsible for occupational safety and health, members of commissions of organizations that are not subordinate to the republican government body, another state organization subordinate to the Government of the Republic of Belarus, another organization, pass the assessment of knowledge on occupational safety and health in the commission of the Minsk City Executive Committee, or the Minsk District Executive Committee.
After the experts pass the occupational safety and health exam, a certificate of occupational safety and health for a period of 3 years is issued.
To pass certification in construction it is also necessary to obtain 3 certificates for occupational safety and health, one must be issued for the name of the head of the organization.
