July 2011 Quarterly Review of International Environmental Health & Safety Legislation July 27, 2011 The Isosceles Group completed its latest review of new environmental health and safety (EHS) legislation for more than 55 countries and emerging global EHS trends. The latest compilation, available for purchase, includes more than 200 new pieces of legislation and covers the period of April through July 2011. Highlights of some of the new laws and regulations during this period are:
Today's workplaces are increasingly confronted with the emerging occupational health and safety issues of workplace bullying, harassment, discrimination, violence, and stress. In response, countries are introducing new legislation, or incorporating new provisions in existing legislation, to address these risks.
Since just 2007, approximately 45 laws, amendments, or Codes of Practice have come into force in over 30 countries or territories prohibiting bullying, harassment, violence, or discrimination in the workplace. Nine European countries have enacted bullying laws, including, most recently, Serbia. Areas of Canada and Australia have done the same. In the United States, a Healthy Workplace Bill has been introduced in 20 states.
In response to these emerging occupational health and safety issues, a comprehensive publication, Workplace Issues 2011: Emerging Workplace Health and Safety Issues: Violence, Harassment, Bullying, Discrimination, and Stress, by Ellen Pinkos Cobb, Esq. is being released by The Isosceles Group in Boston, Massachusetts. This document provides relevant legislative and enforcement requirements and liabilities based on legislation in Western and Eastern Europe, the Asia Pacific Region, the Americas Region, and to a lesser extent, in the Middle East and Africa.
