Вопросы соответствия международным нормам законодательства России в сфере безопасности и гигиены труда
The article examines the issues of conformity of Russian occupational and health legislation to the corresponding international labour standards, namely, art. 2, para. 4 and art. 3 of the European Social Charter and ILO Conventions Nos. 120, 155 and 187.
Conclusions are drawn about the inadequacy of system of penalties for the employers’ breaches of the occupational safety and health requirements, as well as about the insufficient protection of workers for filing the complaints in cases of employers’ breaches on the matter.
The newly adopted federal laws Nos. 421-FZ and 426-FZ are considered to be not in conformity with the international labour standards on occupational safety and health in several issues. These include: the possibility not to reduce the working time and not to provide the additional leaves to workers employed at harmful and dangerous work; the limitation of categories of workers entitled to shortened working time and additional leaves; the exclusion of certain categories of workers from the scope of application of the special assessment of working conditions procedure.
