Description

What is the social problem that the commitment will address?
Data about working environment can produce insights into important working environment risks in relation to geographic location, industry, job types etc. The working environment sector holds large amounts of data that, as open data, has the potential to help motivate and qualify companies’ and other actors’ working environment commitments, while also helping to produce a basis for well-functioning, productive companies, new solutions and services, as well as societal growth. There is a general lack of qualified data in this field. The expert com-mittee for improving working environment initiatives drew attention to the large potential for strengthening knowledge by working with the collection and processing of existing and new data in a more system-atic manner.

What does the commitment entail?
The overall goal of this commitment is to collect data about the work-ing environment of companies and the Danish Working Environment Authority’s findings in a joint database and to make that data available to the public as open data. The Danish Working Environment Authority possesses various pieces of information which are integrated into case management systems, etc., that have not yet been made available. Examples include infor-mation about feedback to Danish Working Environment Authority or-ders, data about working environment complaints and data from in-spectors’ inspection notes. If this data is to add value in our society, it needs to be activated. The database should not only hold the Danish Working Environment Authority’s current data. It should also be enriched with new data that can indicate the general state of the working environment and the po-tential in regards to preventative measures at companies. This may in-volve new internal data from registrations and new data from external actors, such as inspections data from the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration, the Danish Safety Technology Authority and the Dan-ish Business Authority, salary and other information from the Danish Customs and Tax Administration (SKAT) about ability and willingness to pay etc. Open working environment data is made available as presentations on the Danish Working Environment Authority’s website and on a new API solution. Benchmarking data is also presented for the individual companies in the ADVI self-service solution. To produce value from this commitment to qualify and present working environment data, the Danish Working Environment Authority will engage in ongoing dia-logue with other public authorities, organisations, companies and other stakeholders about requirements for, use and value of data.

How will the commitment contribute towards solving the social problem?
It is expected that opening access to working environment data will re-sult in that a broader group of people, public organisations and private operators will be able to access relevant knowledge and insights about working environment. This access can motivate and qualify working environment commitments and support preventative measures, as well as enabling the development of new services, prod-ucts and more effective solutions, including new business opportuni-ties for certification and working environment operators. A combined database containing qualified and new data would addi-tionally support the work of the Danish Working Environment Author-ity, including strengthening focused inspections and preventative measures, by selecting companies for inspections and communica-tions-based initiatives based on better-qualified selection criteria.

Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values?
The commitment will help to improve the quality of working environ-ment data and the public sector’s ability to access it. Open, more ac-cessible working environment data can improve transparency in this area and increase trust that potential working environment risks will be addressed in a fast and efficient manner. The commitment also con-tributes towards qualifying the knowledge base and decision-making basis for companies and other working environment stakeholders, thus helping to support development and innovations processes to-wards a better working environment for all.
