Prohibited work

The law imposes a number of provisions, which prohibit certain kind of work for young people in the interests of protecting their health and development. These prohibitions include work with dangerous tools and equipment and toxic substances. 

Children, who are at the age of 13–14, or who are in compulsory school, may only engage in work that falls under the definition of „light work“ and which is listed in Appendix 4 to the Regulation. Children may neither work with or in the vicinity of machinery or dangerous substances, nor shall they lift heavy weights.
