Regulations laid down by the Ministry of Labour and Social Inclusion 6 December 2011, pursuant to the Working Environment Act, and entering into force 1 January 2013, contain further provisions on safety signs and signalling. Clarification of the scope 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only) of the Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority, in which the requirement of the regulations that are being repealed upon entering into force of the new regulations in pursuance of the Working Environment Act, are included.
For safety signs as referred to in the final subsection, the standards NORSOK C-002 and NS 6033 can also be used.
