    Abstract

    The transposition of the EU Framework Directive resulted in new Danish legislation on workplace assessment whereby a mandatory participatory process to handle work environment is to be established in all firms. The first studies on the implementations shows that while smaller firms do not comply; the larger firms appreciate the new requirements. But a closer analysis shows that the ambitions behind the law are still not fulfilled. By analysing the results through the optics of different theories this paper addresses what strategies to follow to develop the activities and thereby develop the participatory program established in the Danish law on work environment
