Change of the regulation does not dispel all doubts


The employer’s obligation to provide employees with sight-correcting glasses will be extended also to contact lenses. This change is introduced by a long-awaited amendment to the regulation on health and safety at work at workplaces equipped with screen monitors (Journal of Laws, item 2367), which will come into force in 14 days. The resolution, which is being amended for the first time after more than 20 years of its adoption, still does not clear up any doubts as to whether, for example, tablets can be classified as mobile devices equipped with screen monitors. Similarly with checkout counters. It is not just a question of breaks or workstation upgrades, but of the right to glasses contact lenses. – Karolina Kanclerz comments for Dziennik Gazeta Prawna.
