OPERATING RULES

Operating rules for each workplace 

It is a written document that contains a summary of protective measures and work procedures to ensure the protection of employees' health. The operating rules must be in place for certain establishments, such as human care facilities, catering establishments, accommodation establishments, medical establishments and also establishments where employees come into contact with certain work factors. In the latter case, it is necessary to identify the work factors, and if there is, for example, a work factor of noise and chemicals at the workplace, the operating rules must be drawn up for each work factor separately. 

Examples of workplaces where the operating rules are required by law: 

  • operator of an artificial swimming pool accommodation facility operator (cottage, hotel, boarding house) 
  • operator of physical education and sports facilities (fitness center, sports hall, multifunctional playground) 
  • human body care facility operator (hairdresser, beauty salon, manicure, sauna) 
  • facility operator for children and youth (nursery, kindergarten, primary school) operator of common 
  • catering facilities (restaurant, dining room, cafe, bar, confectionery) 
  • an employer whose employees are exposed to vibration during the performance of their work

  • an employer whose employees are exposed to chemical agents in the course of their work 
  • health care providers and health professionals (doctor, dentist)
  •  operators of social services facilities (retirement homes). 

What parts does the operating rules contain? 

The Public Health Office provides freely available models of operating rules for individual facilities and operations. As a rule, however, these operating rules include: 

  • identification data of the operator 
  • installation characteristics of work
  • services provided working procedures instrumentation and instructions for use 
  • waste management methods
  • methods and frequency of cleaning 

Who can draw up the operating rules? 

This document can be prepared by the employer himself. However, it is the obligation to submit it for approval to the relevant regional public health authority. They will study the operating rules, check whether they contain the prescribed requirements and, if necessary, order their supplementation. As the elaboration of a document as extensive as the operating rules is difficult and may require some time and the approval process, it is easier to have it tailored to the occupational health service.
