The modern office and Polish health and safety regs: How to square the realities of today's activity-based workplace with the legal requirements?
Poland's health and safety at work regulations date back to 1998 and offices full of old-style computers with boxy cathode-ray monitors.
Today's employers, competing for skilled staff, are redesigning their workspaces to suit today's technologies and the demands of a new generation of employees. The traditional office is being replaced by activity-based workplaces, with hot-desking, shared spaces, team desks, conference spaces, phone areas, quiet rooms, brainstorming areas and a cafe/lounge. There can be seated or standing workspaces. Today's office, with spaces for collaboration, socialising, focusing or learning, is far removed from what the regulator had in mind two decades ago.
This joint meeting of the Real Estate & Construction and HR policy groups is intended to consider how employers can fit out their new offices in accordance with the law, while also considering how regulations should be changed to reflect the realities of today's work place environment.
The meeting is of importance to businesses.
