The Rulebook on preventive measures for safe and healthy work to prevent the occurrence and spread of an epidemic of infectious diseases (the “Rulebook”) was adopted on 29 June 2020. The Rulebook closely regulates preventive measures that employers are obliged to apply in order to prevent the occurrence and spread of infectious diseases and eliminate the risks for safe and healthy work of employees, as well as persons found in the work environment, when the competent authority declares an epidemic of infectious diseases.

The Rulebook came into force this weekend, on 11 July 2020, and applies to all workplaces in the work environment in which the work is performed, except for field work and work from home.

The Rulebook inter alia stipulates that employers are obliged to adopt a Plan of Implementation of Measures for Preventing the Occurrence and Spread of an Infectious Disease Epidemic (“Plan“) by 10 August 2020 the latest, which will represent an integral part of the risk assessment act in terms of law regulating safety and health at work. The Rulebook stipulates mandatory elements of the Plan, gives an important role to the person in charge of safety and health at work and envisages certain obligations for employees in order to implement the additional necessary measures for safety and health at work.
