Abstract:

In compliance with relevant laws e.g. the Work Environment Act and a number of special laws, such as those relating to inflammable and explosive goods, the transport of dangerous goods, and safety on board ships, various National Defence authorities are responsible, for the safety of materiel and for preventing accidents both in times of peace and war. In conjunction with the changes now taking place in both the community and the defence establishment that affect this safety work such as the European Economic Cooperation Agreement, closer relations with the EC, a new law concerning products, Business Concept -90 and the FMV-90 organization an complete review should be made and co-ordination carried out to improve this work. The object of this article is to shed light on the areas involving the most acute problems and, if possible, propose remedies.
