The law on the registration of bruises and scratches of employees was adopted.

The article «Micro-injuries» is introduced in the Labour Code. Micro-injuries are abrasions, bruises, scratches, wounds, and other injuries received by employees which do not cause health disorders or temporary disability.

Federal Law No. 311-FZ dd 02.07.2021 with amendments to the Labour Code regarding labour protection was published.

The basis for registering a micro-injury is the appeal of the injured employee to his supervisor.

The system of providing personal protective equipment will also be changed. The amendments provide that personal protective equipment will depend on harmful factors at the workplace.

The law will come into force on March 1, 2022. At the same time, until December 31, 2024, it is allowed to use the old standards for personal protective equipment.
