Occupational health rules

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Occupational health rules (AMR) specify the requirements of the Ordinance on Occupational Health Care (ArbMedVV) in Germany. They are drawn up by the Committee for Occupational Medicine and are intended to reflect the state of occupational medicine and established occupational medical knowledge. The rules of occupational medicine are not legally binding. When they are announced in the Joint Ministerial Gazette (GMBl) by the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs , they have a presumptive effect: This means that if the occupational health rules are complied with, it is assumed that the requirements of the ordinance on preventive occupational health care are met. If an employer does not implement the occupational health rules, the measures he has chosen must guarantee at least the same level of safety and health protection for employees as compliance with the occupational health rules.
