NATIONAL ACTION PLAN ON HEALTH AND SAFETY at work FOR 2017–2021

SECTION I
GENERAL PROVISIONS

1. The purpose of the National Action Plan on Health and Safety at Work for 2017-2021 (the ‘Action Plan‘) is to implement the health and safety at work (HSW) policies on a national level, promote interest in HSW as a component of good governance and a key factor of increasing production efficiency and competitiveness, and ensure HSW so that working conditions are improved and productivity is increased.

2.  The Action Plan has been prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Council Conclusions of 10 March 2015 ‘EU StrategicFramework on Health and Safety at Work 2014-2020: Adapting to New Challenges’ and the Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions ‘EU StrategicFramework on Health and Safety at Work 2014-2020’ of 6 June 2014.

3.  The Action Plan consists of an overview of the HSW situation (Section II), a table of the objectives, tasks, measures and allocations of/for the Action Plan and entities responsible for implementation (Section III), and a list of the objectives’ and tasks’ evaluation criteria and their values (Section IV).

SECTION II
OVERVIEW OF HSW SITUATION

4.  According to Statistics Lithuania, as of 1 January 2017 there were 83,256 enterprises, institutions and organisations operating in Lithuania (hereinafter collectively referred to as the ‘enterprises‘) employing 939,388,000 people in all. Enterprises with up to 9 employees  (micro enterprises) accounted for 81% of all enterprises in operation, enterprises with 10–49 employees  (small enterprises) – for 15.5%, enterprises with  50–249 employees (medium enterprises) – 3 %, and enterprises with more than 250 employees (large enterprises) – 0.5 % of all operating enterprises. Every year, the State Labour Inspectorate of the Republic of Lithuania under the Ministry of Social Security and Labour (SLI) inspects about 4% of all enterprises in operation. SLI‘s inspections cover illegal work, compliance with the HSW legal acts and other functions falling within the remit of SLI. In 2015, the largest number of violations of HSW legislation was found at construction enterprises (39.4%); violations at manufacturing industry enterprises accounted for 20.7%, trading enterprises 7.8%, and transport and warehousing enterprises 5.9 %. Works suspended by the SLI inspectors in construction enterprises in 2015 accounted for 96.3% of all works suspended by the SLI inspectors (in all, in 2015 works were suspended at 136 workplaces and the use of 32 means of work was prohibited).
In 2015, the majority of violations of HSW legislation found by the SLI inspectors were related to the occupational risk assessment (14%), training and certification (13.6%), means of work  (9.8% including 7.3% in relation to potentially dangerous equipment). Since 2009, violations related to the occupational risk assessment are most often found in the manufacturing industry sector (28% of all violations of this type in 2015).

5.  According to the SLI, as of 1 January 2017, 45,012 declarations on HSW situation and workplaces’ compliance with HSW legislation were submitted to the SLI System of Electronic Services to Employers, in accordance with Article 39(5) of the Republic of Lithuania Law on Safety and Health at Work.  According to the information in the declarations, functions of an HSW service are performed by the employer, the employer‘s representative or a person authorised by the employer in 88.8% of cases, HSW services are established in 20.3% of cases, there is an HSW specialist in 19.7% of cases, and agreements with legal/natural persons on the performance of HSW functions or part of them have been concluded in 11.5% of cases.

6.  In 2015, 44 lethal, 146 serious and 3,335 minor accidents at work occurred. The numbers of accidents at work per 100,000 employees were as follows:  lethal 3.5, serious 11.8 and minor 269. The total number of accidents at work was increasing in 2012–2015 (from 2,927 to 3,525), whereas the number of serious accidents at work ranged from 119 to 149. The number of lethal accidents at work has decreased: 44 in 2015 compared to 59 in each year of the period 2012–2014.
According to the types of economic activities, in 2015 the majority of accidents at work took place in construction enterprises (14, or 32%), transport and warehousing enterprises (13, or 30%), and manufacturing industry enterprises (6, or 14.3%). In 2015, the majority of serious accidents at work took place in construction enterprises (47, or 32.4%), manufacturing industry enterprises (26, or 14%), and transport and warehousing enterprises (17, or 12%). As much as 41% of lethal accidents at work and 37% of serious accidents at work involved employees with a less than 1 year’s service record with the enterprise. 19% of lethal accidents at work involved employees with the service record with the enterprise varying between 1 and 2 years. The majority of lethal accidents at work occurred due to the employee‘s fall from a height (13, or 31%), road vehicle (9, or 21%), falling objects (5, or 12%), whereas serious accidents at work – due to the employee‘s fall from a height (29%), falling of the employee (19%), falling objects (12%), vehicles (10%). 6 lethal and 8 serious accidents at work occurred due to a failure to remove drunk employees from work.

7.  437 occupational diseases were recorded in the Register of Occupational Diseases of Lithuania in 2015. The numbers of occupational diseases recorded annually remain similar since 2010. In 2015, most cases of occupational diseases were determined by physical factors (230 occupational diseases, or 52.6 % including 157 (35.9%) by vibration and 73 (16.7%) by noise) and ergonomic factors (186 occupational diseases, or 42.6%). Ergonomic factors were responsible for 81.8% of occupational diseases diagnosed in women. Since 2011, the number of diseases caused by ergonomic factors has increased. Occupational cancer cases are recorded very rarely, just as occupational diseases caused by chemical and biological factors (2015: 0.6% and 0.7% of occupational diseases, respectively). During prophylactic health checks of employees carried out in  2015, only 3% of cases of occupational diseases established that year were suspected;  46% of persons for whom an occupational disease/diseases was/were diagnosed in 2015, had lost at least 45% of capacity for work (were incapable for work or partly capable for work).  

8.  According to the 2013 survey of employment of Lithuania‘s population (EUROSTAT), 27,800 (2.2%) of Lithuania‘s employees had work-related health problems. 53.8% of the employees indicated that a work-related health problem had led to a loss of capacity for work. Most often Lithuania‘s employees complained of work-related disorders of the skeletal-muscular system and mental health problems.

9.  The SLI provides ongoing consulting to employers, employers’ representatives and employees on matters related to the implementation of the HSW legislation. In order to ensure a continuous information and training process aimed at employers and employees, the SLI presents to the public, using various mass media, information about the HSW requirements, HSW situation at the country‘s enterprises, SLI activities, best practices of enterprises and other preventive information. Social advertising is also used for the dissemination of information. Over 100 preventive-information reports, method local guidelines, and press releases are prepared and published every year.
Increasing youth awareness of HSW and labour law issues is in the focus of SLI‘s attention. Using the mass media and various events (meetings, lectures, discussions etc.) young people are made conversant with legal acts governing youth work, issues of employment relations, potential occupational risks etc.; in the summer season when enterprises employ young seasonal workers, more attention is devoted to such enterprises in order to avoid violations of legal acts governing youth work; an SLI account focussed on youth education has been created on Facebook where urgent consulting and answers to questions are provided.

10.    Provision of information about SLI and instilling habits of safe behaviour start at school. A general programme on human safety is taught as a separate subject at the basic education level (Years 5-10), with the children made conversant with the indispensable requirements for safe behaviour. On a secondary school level, this programme has been integrated into a number of subjects. Since 2012, a general programme on health education is taught at schools. Pupils who study under formal vocational training programmes are taught HSW according to the Description of the Health and Safety at Work Programme for Pupils Studying under Basic Vocational Training Programmes approved by Order of the Minister of Education and Science of the Republic of Lithuania No ISAK-1953 of 28 September 2005 ‘On the approval of the Description of the Health and Safety at Work Programme for Pupils Studying under Basic Vocational Training Programmes‘. The Descriptors of the Higher Education Study Areas that form a basis for the formulation of study programmes state that persons having completed the study programmes must be knowledgeable about HSW requirements. The descriptors are approved by the Minister of Education and Science and are binding for all higher educational establishments.
