- Employers need to determine where possible risks could arise in the workplace.
- They must then implement measures to combat these risks in an effort to avoid accidents and health risks.
- This assessment must be repeated regularly, as workplaces evolve over time.
Employees are also obliged to take certain measures by the EU: for example, they are required to use/implement occupational health and safety measures in their work and must not simply neglect to use protective clothing. Employees must also report potential risks to their employer.
