Abstract:

Purpose. To use the comparative approach to study the compliance of legal regulation of labor protection in the European Union and Ukraine, as well as on the basis of the results to formulate a strategy for the development of the legislative framework for labor protection in Ukraine.

Methodology. The authors built their research on the possibilities of the comparative approach. Two principles were used as the main ones: a) the principle of comparability of the phenomena, institutions and departments; b) the principle of correspondence between different levels, forms and types of elements of the compared systems.

Findings. The authors considered the possibility of a comparative approach, by which they compared the meanings of the term “labor protection” in Ukraine and the European Union. The authors proved their inconsistency, as well as the need to abandon the use of the term “labor protection” in favor of the term “occupational safety and health”, which is used in laws and regulatory documents of the European Union. The authors formulated the main directions of the new strategy of legal regulation of labor protection in Ukraine.

Originality. The use of a comparative approach when considering the compliance of legal regulation of occupational safety and health in the European Union and Ukraine allowed:

1. Proving the need to replace the term “labor protection” with the term “Occupational safety and health” which is used in laws and regulations of the European Union.

2. Formulating a strategy for the development of the legislative framework for occupational safety and health in Ukraine for its adaptation to the fundamental principles legalized by the European Parliament.

Practical value. The results of the study develop the legislative framework for labor protection in Ukraine, as well as adapt it to key directives, guidelines and standards of the European Union, the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the International Labour Organization and other authoritative international organizations and institutions. The study eliminates the legal conflict existing in the Ukrainian legislation on labor protection, which violates the work of the legal system and infringes on the rights of citizens.
