How the Danish Working Environment Authority is supervising safety and health of work carried out on offshore installations.

If a WEA inspection uncovers health and safety problems it can lead to various responses. These include guidance or a ruling that the company must carry out specific actions. The Danish WEA – Arbejdstilsynet – can also issue fines or notify the police in the event of serious violations of the Working Environment Act.
