New Regulations Now Apply

Ever since the new statutory health and accident insurance regulations – with new requirements for company doctors and occupational safety specialists – came into force in Germany, managers or directors in companies that employ more than ten people must now fulfill more legal requirements than before. The level of responsibility has risen, and the new basis for occupational work and health protection now consists of basic support and company-specific occupational safety components.

Managers and directors are now required to determine the level of company-specific support themselves. The advantage is that they can match support precisely to the characteristics of the company, the risks inherent in the operational sequences and the needs of the people working there. However, this requires close cooperation between managers and directors, company doctors and occupational safety specialists.
