Prior notification of construction site

The developer should, except for smaller jobs, send a prior notification to the Swedish Work Environment Authority before work begins.

The prior notification should firstly be submitted to the region where the construction site is situated, see 7 § in the provisions about building and civil engineering work (AFS 1999:3Eng). The developer should make sure that a copy of the notice is posted at the construction site and that it is kept updated.

  • where the work is calculated to continue for more than 30 working days and where more than 20 persons are simultaneously employed at some point, or
  • when the total number of  person-days is expected to exceed 500.
