The safety at work law is not a separate legal discipline. A great number of legal norms of all classifications and heteronomous categories (state, universal, regional, multilateral, bilateral etc.) and autonomous ones (statues, rules, collective agreements, risk assessment, regulations, decisions on general norms, rules of procedure etc.) underline the need for the safety at work to become an autonomous legal discipline with its name, methods and contents. Based on researches some results should be obtained that would primarily suggest preventive safety at work as an integral part of a production process. It should also provide means and measures that would prevent injuries at work, professional and other work-related illnesses and in case these actually happen, help ensure workers' rights deriving from principles of safety at work, of mutuality, solidarity, personality and unexpirability. With new acts developed with scientific nomotechnical methods, a new contemporary system of safety at work would be introduced, complying with the norms of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the acquis communautaire of the European Union, which should be able to ensure adequate safety at work and the safety at work law to be studied and implemented along with other disciplines (work medicine, work psychology, labour economics, ergonomics, etc.) as an autonomous legal discipline.
