Norway's regional safety representatives: supporting occupational safety and health compliance (Case NO6)


Regional safety representatives (RVOs) are especially needed in several industries such as construction, hotels, restaurants and cleaning. RVOs ensure that companies have an elected safety representative with the required training.

RVOs have in recent years increased their accessibility via digital means to extend their outreach and visibility.
