Ofte stillede spørgsmål om APVSå svarene her
What does WPA stand for?
WPA stands for 'Workplace Assessment' and is mandatory for assessing the physical work environment.
What is a WPA?
A workplace assessment is a comprehensive review of the entire workplace aimed at ensuring a safe and healthy work environment. WPA serves as a useful tool to identify areas for improvement, both physically and mentally. By mapping the work environment and planning for enhancements, you can systematically work towards creating a better workplace.
Who is required to conduct a WPA?
It is a requirement by the Danish Labor Inspectorate (Arbejdstilsynet) that all companies with employees must carry out a workplace assessment.
How often should a WPA be conducted?
The Danish Labor Inspectorate mandates a new workplace assessment and action plan every three years. Additionally, it is recommended to conduct a WPA when there are changes in work processes, or work methods that affect the work environment, such as the introduction of new machinery or materials. The WPA should also be adjusted if new information arises that can enhance the work environment, for example, after a workplace accident reveals work environment-related issues.
Should a WPA be anonymous?
Methodological freedom applies in the preparation of the WPA, meaning that there are no official strict rules regarding whether it should be anonymous or not; it is up to the individual organization to decide. However, it is a good idea to consider anonymity during the WPA process to obtain more honest results and ensure participants' comfort in their responses.
What are the benefits of conducting a WPA?
The workplace assessment is the company's tool for managing the work environment. An WPA identifies potential challenges and can uncover work environment issues that may lead to increased employee absenteeism.
