Occupational safety, mining activities, work on specified electrical equipment used in mining and mining-type activities
Draft Decree amending certain decrees related to the Decree on occupational health and safety and the safety of the operation of specified electrical equipment during mining activities, mining-type activities and the handling of explosives
The content of the proposed regulation is to clarify the regulation of safety signs in accordance with Government Regulation No 375/2017 on the appearance, positioning and implementation of safety signs and markings and the introduction of signals that regulate the appearance, positioning and implementation of safety signs and the harmonisation of nomenclature in the concept of accident control. Additional important content is the reduction of the maximum permitted concentration for carbon monoxide, or stricter limits for pollutants, laid down by Government Regulation No 361/2007, as amended by Government Regulation No 195/2021 laying down conditions for the protection occupational health, as amended. Government Regulation No 361/2007, as amended by Government Regulation No 195/2021, incorporates relevant European Union legislation and regulates certain risk factors of working conditions. These are mainly pollutants – carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides and hydrogen sulphide. The effectiveness of Article I(6) and (9) is limited to 21.8.2023 pursuant to Government Regulation No 195/2021 and Commission Directive (EU) 2017/164 of 31 January 2017 establishing a fourth list of indicative occupational exposure limit values pursuant to Council Directive 98/24/EC and amending Commission Directives 91/322/EEC, 2000/39/EC and 2009/161/EU. Requirements are also clarified for a second supply line, which must ensure the operation of all pumps, and the regulation of activities on specified electrical equipment, so that in the amended Decrees they comply with the wording of the new Decree on occupational safety and health and the safety of the operation of electrical equipment and on the requirements for specified electrical equipment during mining, mining-type activities and in the manufacture, processing and storage of explosives. This Decree is also notified (under No 2021/598/CZ). Two versions of the same provisions in the amendment to Decree Nos 22/1989 and 55/1996 are divided because Commission Directive (EU) 2017/164 allows for an exemption from its wording regarding pollutant limits until 2023.
