Section 12-7. Exemption from the prohibition on work for vocational training

If the work is carried out as part of the practical training under the auspices of the school, or practical training under an apprenticeship contract or training contract, young people between the age of 15 and 18 who are not required to go to school, may perform work as mentioned in Section 12-5 (b) to (d) and Section 12-6 (b) to (p).
On the same terms as mentioned in the first paragraph, young people aged between 16 and 18 who are not required to go to school may perform work as mentioned in Section 12-6 (a) when the effective dose equivalent does not exceed 5 mSv over 12 months. In the event of irradiation of individual organs, the dose limit must not exceed 50 mSv/year for the eye lens and 150 mSv/year for the skin, hands and feet.
Young people who have turned 17 may be given practical training in the use of work equipment as mentioned in Section 12-6 (q) to (u), if the training complies with the requirements for safety training set out in Chapter 10 of the Regulations concerning the Performance of Work. Such training can also be provided to upper secondary school students when the student has turned 16 and the training takes place under the qualified supervision of the school.
When young people are put to work as mentioned in the first, second and third paragraphs, the employer shall organise and adapt the work to the person's work experience and level of maturity, and otherwise implement measures as necessary to safeguard their health, safety and development.
The employer shall ensure that young people who are put to such work are supervised by an experienced, qualified person to the extent that this is necessary.
