Cannabis Production and Employment Safety in Germany
April 9, 2020 from CannaList
Employment Safety and health play a central role in Germany. The fundamental law is on the implementation of employment safety measures to improve the safety and health protection of employees at work (Arbeitsschutzgesetz – ArbSchG) (1). This law and the rules and regulations impose more obligations on the employer than on the employee. Through cooperative collaboration, it is possible to significantly reduce the risks for employees and to optimize health protection in the corporation.
The industrial production of cannabis is quite new to Germany and it is, therefore, all the more important to consider which measures have to be taken to maintain the health of the employees. The production of cannabis is subject to the same requirements as all other work, depending on the work area and task, the spectrum of hazards can be quite broad.
