Section last changed: 01 January 2018

Regulations laid down by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs 6 December 2011, pursuant to the Working Environment Act, and entering into force 1 January 2013, contain, inter alia, further provisions on protection against mechanical vibrations. Clarification of the scope as far as the petroleum activities are concerned, is directly evident from the individual regulations. In addition, reference is made to the lawmirror (in Norwegian only) of the Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority, in which the requirement of the regulations that are being repealed upon entering into force of the new regulations in pursuance of the Working Environment Act, are included.
