Saugos ir sveikatos darbe reglamentavimo problemos kelių transporto srityje.
The paper deals with problems of reglamentation of health and safety at work in road transport sector in the Republic of Lithuania. The author pays attention to the fact that a lot of standards are provided in international, European, and national legal acts but there is no sector-specific provisions on health and safety for the road transport sector. However the statistics shows that road transport sector is one of the most dangerous sectors with a growing number of accidents at work. Both European Community and national legal framework on health and safety is very complex and not very clear and has to be simplified and rationalised. The lack of provisional information from State labour inspectorate and other competent institutions about existing and new requirements on specifics of health and safety at work in road transport is marked. Due to the lack of dialogue between social partners, there are difficulties with the local (establishment-level) regulation of safety and health at work. Trade unions are not active in process of consultation and information of employees inside establishments. Therefore the road transport operators are not able to sort out, enact in local legal acts and observe all the standards in this field.
