The MSAH is responsible for preparing legislation on occupational safety and health care, and policy development on occupational safety and health and wellbeing at work. The ministry also deals with equality and and balancing working life and family life.

One of the MSAH's strategic aims is is to promote safe and healthy working conditions and workability for everyone. An important goal is to lengthen working careers at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of the working career. Improving people’s ability, willingness and possibilities to work is a key condition for extending careers.
