Occupational Health in Russia
For organisations, Russia can pose various challenges when trying to comply with their health and safety regulations. Organisations have a moral and legal responsibility to provide Duty of Care to their employees and understanding the Occupational Health standards in the country is the first step. Failure to adhere to these regulations can be costly, timely and have a negative effect on an organisations reputation.
The lack of a clear understanding of the requirements and non-compliance with the law can lead to serious violations, accidents, legal actions and financial expenditures. These issues apply to every company doing business in Russia, in particular foreign companies, which:
- draw increased attention from government authorities;
- face additional challenges such as language problems;
- have a specific nature of the Russian legal framework with origins in USSR legislation.
