The Hungarian Government has designed the minister for employment policy, and the District Offices of the Capital and County-level Government Offices to perform administrative duties as authorities dealing with occupational safety and health and labour affairs.

The district offices of capital/county government offices are territorial state administrative organs that carry out OSH inspections, while Department of Occupational Safety and Health within the Ministry of Finance performs, inter alia, professional guidance of OSH inspection authorities and actively contributes to preparation and elaboration of regulations regarding OSH. In addition, Department of Occupational Safety and Health administers the national focal point of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work and in this capacity cooperates with the social partners.

 A separate organisation (Mining and Geological Survey of Hungary) controls the safety of workplaces related to mining.
