Austrian Institute for Statutory Accident Insurance (AUVA)
AUVA is in charge of the vocational education team and maintains the corresponding forum. AUVA analyses and develops criteria for good practice in the EU-15, and continues its work on developing a European standard for the qualification of lecturers and trainers in occupational safety and health.
Federal Ministry of Labour
Nowadays the labour inspection is part of the Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection. 19 regional labour inspectorates and one special inspectorate for construction work are directly responsible to the Central Labour Inspectorate. Each of the federal provinces has at least one labour inspectorate and each labour inspectorate has a medical labour inspection service.
Labour inspection is the biggest legally commissioned organisation for combating deficits in the safety and health at work places in Austria. We act according to uniform principles and are independent from individual interests.
A homogenous implementation practice on federal basis ensures that claims of equal rights and fair competition at work are guaranteed.
By exercising its legal mandate, labour inspection ensures the protection of life and health of the working population. It thus contributes towards
preventing accidents and work-related illness
enhancing safety at work and health at work
the acceptance of occupational safety and health by society.
Labour inspection verifies adherence to the legal provisions for the protection of life and health of the working population.
We fulfil our tasks as a party in permission and exemption procedures.
We inform and advise free of charge, with legally binding effect, in all matters of occupational safety and health at work.
Within the scope of our activities we mediate between conflicting parties in the world of work.
We investigate in the event of accidents at work and in matters concerning complaints about a nuisance or abuse.
We participate in international projects in the field of safety and health at work.
We are involved in lectures, training, and discussions as regards vocational and further training of those responsible for protection at work.
We create awareness for aspects of safety and health at work.
In the course of our activities - from the inspection of plants to participation in information meetings - we co-operate primarily with the following partners:
Employees, safety representatives and works councils
Enterprises and planning companies
Experts and centres for the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases
Chambers, trade unions, and professional associations/federations
Social security carriers and the public employment service
