Green Smiley from Work Environment Denmark

PJ Diesel Engineering was audited in March by The Danish Working Environment Authority and awarded with a GREEN Smiley.  

The green smiley shows that the company has nothing outstanding with the Danish Working Environment Authority and is valid for the period March 2021 to March 2024 (Three years from audit to next audit).

About a Green smiley

A company can only get a green smiley if it has had its essential working environment (basic supervision) reviewed.

The company will receive a green smiley if the Danish Working Environment Authority has found:

  • that the company does not violate the working environment rules, or
  • that the company has only received decisions on formal violations and has put things right, and the associated yellow smiley is off.

The company will not get a green smiley if the company enters into an agreement with the Danish Working Environment Authority on improving the working environment and on solving one or more specific working environment problems.

Along with the green smiley, a date is published showing:

  • when the company has received an inspection that has looked at the essential working environment, or
  • when the company has terminated its outstanding with the Danish Working Environment Authority.
  • The green smiley has an expiration date. This means that it is switched off after 3 years.

A new three-year period begins after each inspection.

When can the green smiley be removed?

The green smiley will be removed from the Danish Working Environment Authority’s website if the company is ordered to issue conditions that trigger a yellow or a red smiley.
That is, if the company receives a ban, an immediate injunction, an advisory injunction, an injunction with a deadline or a decision without a duty to act.

 

The green smiley will also be removed if the Danish Working Environment Authority and the company enter into an agreement on improving the working environment and on solving one or more specific working environment problems.

When will the company get the green smiley again?

A company that has received a yellow or a red smiley at a basic inspection where the Danish Working Environment Authority has reviewed the essential working environment will receive the green smiley again when the Danish Working Environment Authority has carried out a new basic inspection without the company having received any decisions on violating the Working Environment Act. The same applies if, after the inspection, the company enters into an agreement with the Danish Working Environment Authority on improving the working environment and on solving one or more specific problems.

If the company has received a green smiley, but subsequently receives a yellow or red smiley at a special inspection, the company gets the green smiley back when the yellow or red smiley goes out.

If the company has received a green smiley, but after a subsequent special inspection enters into an agreement on improving the working environment and on solving one or more specific work environment problems, the company gets the green smiley back when the work environment problems agreed upon are resolved and it is controlled by the Danish Working Environment Authority.

 

Companies with a green smiley that has expired or is about to expire and companies that do not have a smiley can order an inspection where the essential work environment is looked at.

The inspection will be carried out no later than six months after the Danish Working Environment Authority has received the order.
