Requirements for a safe working environment
The Working Environment Act and associated regulations generally apply to all working conditions in Norway. For example, all employees in Norway have the right to:
- A written contract of employment
- A safe working environment
- Regular working hours
- A minimum wage in certain industries
If the worker is employed by a foreign enterprise and posted to Norway, special regulations apply. These provisions are intended to secure all workers certain minimum rights in connection with work across international borders.
