All issues concerning occupational safety and health (OSH) at national level are under the responsibility of the Ministry of Labour and Social Security. The General Directorate of Working Conditions and Health, responsible for the OSH legislation, strategy, organization, information, education, training and research issues and the Labour Inspectorate (S.EP.E.), which is the inspection and the enforcement authority for the implementation of the labour legislation, are the principal competent state authorities.

The non-governmental OSH social partners play a crucial role to the common aim of improving the working environment and of minimizing the number of work-related accidents and occupational diseases, through the established national OSH social dialogue.

The Greek Focal Point via an enacted collaboration with the social partners and other organizations, has undertaken among other issues, the effort to coordinate and manage the operation of the National OSH Information Network.
