Aim & Goal: The study aims to examine the new work regulation 2015:4 which deals with the organizational and social work environment. The goal is that with the help of the regulation the study will highlight the problems of the shortcomings in the work environment as well as create greater understanding of the psychosocial work environment. Method: The descriptive and non-analytical research part was made by reviewing literature in the field of organizational and social environment.

The qualitative part is carried in the form of interviews made in consequence of the survey to complement the results. Consequently, the analysis was made on the basis of the problem based on the comparison between the theory and the results. Results, Analysis & Discussion: The study showed theoretical examination of the work environment through literature along with an empirical study based on questionnaires, interviews and the prioritization principle which aims to identify risk problems resulted in a good workplace with a high degree of satisfaction. Hence the experience of the classic factors such as lack of time is perceived highly by all within the business operation & maintenance. Other factors such as workload, victimization and lack of support from the head of business for a number of respondents was discussed. Through increased communication, clarity of the content of work and a further study in the problematic areas, the operations can take the adequate measures and any changes that may contribute to an improved working environment and increased job satisfaction. Conclusion: The conclusion by its three parts answered the questions of the primary study. In summary, the Act of legislation aims to through a well-functioning systematic work counteract and prevent the causes of ill-health due to organizational and social work relations, which in turn promotes a good working environment. All employers and employees are covered by the Act, however the responsibility lies with the employer to follow up. The work has suggested that through systematic work, the organizational and social factors are managed. As proposals for further examination and action the discursive approach has been recommended where an improvement of the support system and training of employees can be developed. (Less)
