Occupational safety: risk assessment and prompt training

The Commission for requests on occupational safety, with note no. 4/2015, in responding to a question from the Associazione nazionale costruttori edili (Ance), clarified that (i) the risk assessment document must contain the accurate identification of all of the risks connected with the work to perform, not being able to refer to the job abstractly assigned to the worker and (ii) training must be considered an integral part of the work organisation, correlated with the risk assessment, and as a consequence must be periodically review in relation to changes in risks or manifestation of new risks. The above entails that the training given to a worker must be tailored to the specific activities that the worker is asked to perform, whose specific risks must be adequately covered.
