Therefore, the aim of the study is to examine what responsibilities the employer, through the regulation, is imposed to prevent the risk for unhealthy workload for employees.
The study was made doable through the legal method that enables a combination of science and legislation and that is characterized of a free argumentation. The method has been complemented with a gender perspective, a physiological perspective and a European legal perspective. Used material is except regulations on the working environment, also literature and other relevant studies and also some statistic.
