Guides

At guides
At guides, At instructions and At notifications are issued by the Working Environment Authority and provide guidance on interpretation and understanding of the regulations laid down the Working Environment Act and executive orders and what practice is applicable in terms of compliance with the regulations. These guides do not contain binding requirements; they merely recommend and provide information. If the recommendations and methods of the At guides are followed, this will also lead to compliance with the working environment legislation; however, a different method may also be selected, where reasonable.

You can find the Working Environment Act, the executive orders, the At guides and other information from the the Working Environment Authority website at www.at.dk.

Industry guides
Industry guides describe good industry practice and include specific recommendations for enterprises. These are compiled by Sector Working Environment Committee for Bygge & Anlæg or another sector health and safety committee and reviewed by the Working Environment Authority. If the recommendations of the industry guide are followed, this will also lead to compliance with the working environment legislation for the field described in the guide.

Use them as a guideline to help to select expedient practice for the working environment. Industry guides for building and construction can be found at www.bfa-ba.dk.
