NL: Inspectorate SZW starts inspecting the use of dangerous substances and occupational safety

26 February 2014

Starting from February 2014 the Inspectorate SZW will visit a large number of companies for an inspection. Inspectors will survey the exposure to dangerous substances and the occupational safety of internal transportation and working with and near machines.
The Inspectorate SZW supervises the compliance with the regulations in the area of working conditions. Both companies that haven’t been inspected for a long time as companies that have recently been inspected will be visited. If the inspector observes flaws again, the company can receive a higher sanction according to the ‘Wet aanscherping handhaving en sanctiebeleid SZW wetgeving’ (News item Inspectorate SZW, 23 January 2014).
