    The Israel Labour Inspection (Organisation) Law, 5714-1954 (‘Labour Law’) (only available in Hebrew here) established the functions of Inspection Service which duties include oversight of labour security, vocational hygiene and healthcare in the workplace and the undertaking of other functions assigned to it by the Minster of Labour and Social Affairs in the fields of safety, hygiene, health and work arrangements.

  • Requirements

    Article 5 outlines that where a labour inspector is of the view that the welfare or safety of individual operating in a workplace is in risk due to the job or method thereof or the situation of manner of use of machinery, facilities or equipment or for any other cause, he/she may bring a technical specialist to carry out an investigation. 

    Article 8A(a) highlights where a Minister other than the Minster of Labour and Social Affairs is charged with implementing the enactment related to safety, hygiene and welfare of the employees, the inspector shall serve a copy of the order to the appointed Minister.  

    Article 8D(d) and 8D(e) provide that the occupier of a workplace shall deliver to a regional labour inspector at his/her written request, a copy of the updated safety scheme, which the occupier of the workplace had prepared, within the time prescribed, and if the inspector finds defects in the safety scheme he/she may request the preparation of a new safety scheme and the individual who does not comply with the request will be subject to penalties. 

    The Labour Law also provides for the establishment of safety committees. Article 10(a) highlights that in an organisation with no less 25 employees, shall have a safety committee made of representatives of the employees and representatives of the employer; in an organisation with less than 25 employees, the employees together with the employer shall establish safety committee by agreement.  

    Article 12(a) provides that where a safety committee had been established, the secretary of the committee shall give notice of the establishment to the regional labour inspector by including the names of the members of the committee, the chairman and the secretary.
