||Complaints regarding occupational health and safety in the area of Thessaloniki (Greece)
||2009, Vol.47, p.647-651. 10 ref.
||This paper deals with the complaints regarding occupational safety and health in a region of Greece. It seeks to examine who are the complainers, to which companies or activities they belong, to what extent complaints are relevant to occupational safety and health, and whether the complaints result in penalties. Complaints irrelevant to occupational safety and health are twice as frequent as those that are relevant. In three quarters of the cases, the complaints do not result to any kind of sanction. In one fifth of the cases, the complaints are not followed by any action taken by the office in charge. Implications of these and other findings are discussed.
