Health and safety at work

Apart from mandatory insurance, the employer must make sure that it offers a workplace that respects the needs of its employees. 

It is the employer’s duty to prevent any harm to the physical or psychological integrity of its employees in the workplace. This involves several measures:

  • Risk prevention
  • Tangible adjustments
  • Planning working hours according to the worker's health
  • Hygiene

Particular attention must be paid in those areas requiring heavy and repetitive work or where the risk of accident is higher.
