The Decree contains provisions on occupational health and safety and the safety of the operation of specified electrical equipment when performing mining, mining-type activities and handling explosives.

Furthermore, it lays down requirements for the competence of persons to operate and work on specified electrical equipment;essential requirements for the commissioning and operation of specified electrical equipment;requirements to ensure safe work and operation when operating and working on electrical equipment;it defines the requirements to ensure occupational safety and health during activities on specified electrical equipment in potentially explosive areas and requirements to ensure safe work on and operation of specified electrical equipment in the case of two or more employers in one workplace during mining, mining-type activities and the handling of explosives.

In connection with the adoption of this Decree, Decree No 202/1995 on requirements to ensure safety and health protection during operation and work on electrical equipment during mining and mining activities is repealed;Decree No 74/2002 on specified electrical equipment.

The reason for the draft is to simplify activities performed on electrical equipment during mining, mining-type activities and the handling of explosives, because the requirements to ensure occupational safety and health at work on electrical equipment during these activities will be set out in a single comprehensive Decree, in contrast with the present situation, which will make the work more transparent and thus also easier.

The draft Decree does not contain references to national technical standards, technical documents or business standards, nor to European standards, harmonised standards or international standards containing a national annex or a national note or, where appropriate, a recommendation.
