Based on Article 20 of Health and Safety at Work Act, all employers in Croatia (regardless of the number of employees and the nature of their business) need to arrange health and safety at work management in one of the prescribed ways.
In other words, this means that alongside other obligations (providing complete documentation, employee training, building testing etc.), as an employer you must take care of health and safety at work management, and do so constantly.
Regardless of the number of employees you have and your risk evaluation, the ways in which you can solve your obligations are predetermined by Health and Safety at Work Act.
According to the Act (with exceptions), this obligation must be solved by employing one or more experts who hold the second degree in health and safety at work.
If you employ a maximum of 49 people, while simultaneously fulfilling all regulations determined by the Act (fulfilled by you or one of your workers), health and safety at work related activities can be done on your own.
In this case you can arrange health and safety at work activities with an authorized person or company.
No, it doesn’t. Even though smaller employers (due to lack of competences or cost-effectiveness) usually hire an outside partner to take care of health and safety at work related activities, all the responsibility remains on the employer.
In other words, even though you chose the law-defined option of hiring an outside partner, in case there is an omission, you are the one that will receive the fine.
Your legal obligation isn’t fulfilled just by signing a contract, if your partner doesn’t provide you with any quality engagement.
Considering health and safety at work demands are clearly defined by the law, we advise you to choose an experienced partner who will be able to fulfil all the responsibilities defined by the law.
