SAFETY AT WORK: COMMUNICATION OF THE WORKERS’ SAFETY REPRESENTATIVE (RLS)
INAIL (National institute for insurance against injuries at work) has published circular letter no. 43/09 with which it describes the operating procedures for communicating the information on Workers’ Safety Representatives (RLS). The changes to the Consolidated Act on safety introduced by Legislative Decree 106/09 require that communication of the RLS’s name no longer needs to be performed annually, but only in cases of change or new appointment. Therefore, those who have already complied with the obligation in question according to the instructions previously imparted by the Institute for 2009, do not need to communicate this name again.
Appointment of RLS is the prerogative of the employees, therefore missing these subjects in the organization of the company are not required to make any communication.
