Section 6-3 The safety representative's right to halt dangerous work

(1) If a safety representative considers that the life or health of employees is in immediate danger and such danger cannot be averted by other means, work may be halted until the Labour Inspection Authority has decided whether work may be continued. Work may only be halted to the extent the safety representative considers necessary in order to avert danger.

(2) The halting of work and the reason for this shall be reported without delay to the employer or the employer's representative.

(3) The safety representative is not liable for any loss suffered by the undertaking as a result of work being halted pursuant to the provision laid down in the first paragraph.
