To save the lives and health of women in Belarus, their labor is prohibited in 181 instances of especially hazardous and dangerous work conditions. The corresponding list is smaller than the previous edition. It decreased by 71 positions, which contributes not only to the increase in women's employment opportunities, but also an increase in their salaries. The Ministry of Labor and Social Protection drew attention to the fact that now not the name of the profession, but the working conditions define whether a woman can apply for a certain job.
