About the website

Read about the content of Work Environment in Denmark - the English website of the Danish Working Environment Authority (Arbejdstilsynet).

The Danish Working Environment Authority (WEA) works for a safe and healthy working environment in all companies in Denmark. This involves drawing up rules on safety and health at work, inspecting companies and communicating safety and health information.

At this website you will find Danish legislation on occupational safety and health (OSH), i.e. the most central Acts, Executive Orders and WEA Guidelines.

You will also find information about the Danish Working Environment Authority’s inspection of enterprises and some of the most central self-service solutions in the area. In addition you will find a list of publications in English.

For information targeting foreign companies and guidance about health and safety in the construction industry, we refer you to WorkplaceDenmark.dk.

Workplacedenmark.dk is a national website informing foreign service providers and employees posted to work in Denmark about their rights and duties. The website covers information on working conditions, health and safety, taxes and VAT as well as regulations on posting.

Workplacedenmark.dk is available in English, German, Polish and Danish. In addition central subject matters are translated into the following languages: Lithuanian, Romanian, Russian, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.

Unlike the Danish website the English website only contains information from the Danish Working Environment Authority. The information on the Danish website - Arbejdsmiljø i Danmark - is also provided by the Danish Working Environment Information Centre.
