At the end of the meeting it was concluded that the application of the OHS Law shall bring greater benefits for both workers and employers. In the region of Bitola, the survey of the regional office raised the awareness of the importance of the OHS matters and there are some of the companies that fully apply the foreseen standards. On the other hand we need further training for union officials / OHS representatives. In the companies with over 50 employees, the union representative has the right to make inspections on the workspace, to talk to the employer if there are problems, to notify the labor inspector for certain shortcomings, to sign OHS statement, to give his opinion and participate in the inspection in estimating jobs, i.e. whether the employer has implemented all necessary measures in assessing the risk.

At the end of the meeting as a general conclusion was concluded that the importance of this law should be extended to companies that have from 1 to 10 employees in the proper scope and need.

Although the data show that the number of injuries and accidents at work has been decreased, however there is always room for additional measures in order to ensure even greater protection of workers.
