Occupational health

​In the Danish Maritime Authority, we follow developments in the maritime area closely. In this manner, we ensure that the safety level at sea corresponds to that ashore and that the ILO and EU provisions on occupational health are implemented.  

​​​We cooperate with, inter alia, the Danish Working Environment Authority and take part in ILO meetings when occupational health at sea is on the agenda.

According to the regulations of the Danish Maritime Authority, two occupational health services have been established for shipping and fishing, respectively.
