  3.  to adjust the work to the worker for reduction of the bad influences on his health;
  4.  to replace the dangerous with safe or less dangerous;
  5.  to indicate hazards and sources of factors harmful to health and safety;
  6.  to pursue a consistent and comprehensive prevention policy, etc .;

    It is extremely important that the Workplaces meet the minimum requirements for ensuring healthy and safe working conditions, which conditions are determined by an Ordinance of the Minister of Labor and Social Policy and the Minister of Health.
