Well-being at Work/European environmental care
Explanation:
This is what I found after much searching...
I think it might be regulations rather than law (does the European Env. org. have the power to write Law??)

Anyway, here's the results:

well-being at work is your official translation for the bit between law and European.

d. At the most general level, the imperative to protect human health and well-being at work is part of the movement to achieve economic sustainability. Existing sustainability indicators focus on nonhuman resources, but surely it is just as important that production not diminish the capacity of the human producers. In a global economy, sustainability is measured in terms of consumption, since production crosses borders and largely responds to consumer demand. Specifically, indicators are constructed by calculating the resource costs of the goods consumed, which is a function of the scale of demand and the means used to satisfy it. We ought to include the protection of human resources in this calculation as well, but this will only be possible once we have reasonable estimates of the human costs throughout the global production chain. On a practical level, consumers in the developed countries ought to know the full cost of the goods they purchase, so that responsibility as well as commerce can be globalized.

Law on conditions at the workplace/Community environmental law


Explanation:
Dear Davorka, I think the author got a bit 'creative' as there really is no such law as 'Wet op het Welzijn bij de uitoefening van het werk'. (hij heeft de klok horen luiden, maar weet niet waar de klepel hangt)

What is referred to is (per the official Dutch Journal/Staatsblad) regarding the 'Arbeidsomstandighedenwet' is the following:
Arbeidsomstandighedenwet/Wet van 8 november 1980, Stb. 664, houdende bepalingen in het belang van de veiligheid, de gezondheid en het welzijn in verband met de arbeid, zoals deze laatstelijk is gewijzigd bij de Wet van 21 februari 1996, Stb. 133 (Tekstplaatsing)

I took a look at the Official EU site as follows and came up with the above term.

http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/nl/
http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/nl/lif/dat/1994/nl_394D0272.htm...
Overheidstoezicht (7) Op grond van de Arbeidsomstandighedenwet (Arbowet) dient de werkgever er zorg voor te dragen, dat de werktuigen die hij inzet doelmatig en deugdelijk geconstrueerd zijn.

http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/en/lif/dat/1994/en_394D0272.htm...
Government supervision (7) Under the Law on conditions at the workplace, employers must ensure that the tools and equipment they use are appropriately and reliably constructed.

I had similar 'luck' with the 'Europese milieuzorg'. The best I could come up with here is the following:


http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/en/lif/dat/1997/en_397Y1022_01....


Council Resolution of 7 October 1997 on the drafting, implementation and enforcement of Community environmental law
Official Journal C 321 , 22/10/1997 p. 0001 - 0005

Best regards,

Marijke Mayer
