The Swedish Work Environment Authority's appropriation will be increased by SEK 20 million from July 2015 onwards. A special initiative for working life research will also be implemented in 2015-2018, with a focus on women's work environment problems and work-related ill health. An enhancement of the skills supply for occupational health services will also begin, starting in July 2015.
