The company is then required a long series of documents.All these "investigative activities of the Judicial Police" are aimed at drafting, by technicians ASL, a technical report to be sent to the Prosecutor's Office at the Court. In this technical report, it will be rebuilt so-called "dynamic of occurrence of the accident" will be identified, and any laws and violated related to the accident, namely the "objective causation."

PHYSICAL AGENTSThe risk assessment and prevention in relation to the Physical Agents are discussed in Title VIII of Legislative Decree no. 81/2008, in particular with regard to:
______________________________Risk Asswssmwnt and schedue (Chapter I)The first chapter defines the obligations of carrying out Risk Assessment and its periodicity, and in particular defines that:
______________________________Protection of workers against noise exposure at work (Chapter II)
Chapter II lays down minimum requirements for the protection of workers from risks to health and safety from exposure to noise at work.
In particular defines the exposure limit values and the action values, in relation to the level of daily exposure to noise and peak sound pressure:
Exceeding the limits set forth above implies an intervention by the Employer and more particularly:
______________________________Protection of workers against the risk of exposure to vibrations (Chapter III)Chapter III prescribes measures for protecting the health and safety of workers who are exposed or may be exposed to risks from mechanical vibration. It also provides the definition of the concept of vibration transmitted image to the hand-arm and whole-body:
The exposure limit values and the action values are different for hand-arm and whole body.Hand-arm system
The daily action value is the value of exposure from which need to be implemented specific measures of protection for exposed individuals; such measures include the implementation of interventions aimed at eliminating or reducing risk, training and information for workers on the specific risk, periodic medical surveillance of exposed workers.
The daily exposure limit value represents the level of exposure the passing of which is prohibited and must be prevented, because it involves an unacceptable risk to a subject that will be exposed in the absence of protective devices.
In particular, then the Decree no. 81/2008 states that "the employer shall assess and, if necessary, measure the levels of mechanical vibration to which workers are exposed".
Therefore, the measurements will always be necessary in all those cases where it is not possible to go back to the exact value of the vibration is reported to the machine / equipment is normally adopted to the mode of use in the company.
The employer, then, will ensure that workers exposed to risks from mechanical vibration at work receive information and appropriate training on the basis of risk evaluation with emphasis on correct and safe use of work equipment and PPE , so as to minimize their exposure to mechanical vibration.
Workers who are exposed to vibration levels higher than the action values are subjected to at least an annual health surveillance.
Workers exposed to vibrations undergo health checks even when, according to the company doctor, you experience all the following conditions: the exposure of workers to vibration is such as to make possible the identification of a link between the exposure and an identifiable illness or harmful effects on health and it is probable that the illness or the effects occur in a worker's particular working conditions, and there are proven techniques that enable detection of the illness or the harmful effects on health.
______________________________Protection of workerd from risk of exposure to electromagnetic fields (Chapter IV)Chapter IV sets minimum requirements for the protection of workers from risks to health and safety arising from exposure to electromagnetic fields (0 Hz to 300 GHz).Even in the case of electromagnetic fields are defined the exposure limit values and the action values:
As part of the risk assessment, the employer shall assess and, if necessary, measure or calculate the levels of electromagnetic fields to which workers are exposed. The assessment, measurement and calculation must be made in accordance with the European standards from the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization (CENELEC). Until those rules have not provided all the relevant circumstances with regard to the assessment, measurement and calculation of workers to electromagnetic fields, the employer shall adopt the good practices identified or specifications issued by the Standing Advisory Committee for the Prevention of Accidents and occupational hygiene, or, alternatively, those of the Italian Electrotechnical Committee (IEC), taking into account, if necessary, of the emission levels provided by the manufacturers of the equipment.
Following the assessment of the levels of electromagnetic fields, where it appears that the action values are exceeded, the employer shall assess and, if necessary, calculate whether the exposure limit values are exceeded.
Following the risk assessment, if it appears that the action values are exceeded, the employer, unless the assessment carried out demonstrates that the exposure limit values are not exceeded and that can be excluded safety risks, processes and applies an action plan comprising technical and organizational measures to prevent exposure exceeding the exposure limit values.
Workplaces where workers may be exposed to electromagnetic fields exceeding the action values shall be indicated by appropriate signs.
In any event, workers must be exposed above the exposure limit values. If, despite the measures taken by the employer, the exposure limit values are exceeded, the employer shall take immediate action to reduce exposure below the exposure limit values, identify the reasons why the exposure limit values are exceeded and shall amend the protection and prevention measures to prevent them being exceeded again.
Health monitoring is performed periodically, usually once a year or less periods selected by the competent doctor with particular regard to workers at particular risk, taking into account the results of the risk assessment results transmitted by the employer.
______________________________Protection of workers from risk of exposure to artificial optica radiation (Chapter V)
Chapter V lays down minimum requirements for the protection of workers from risks to health and safety that may arise from exposure to artificial optical radiation during their work with particular regard to the risks due to adverse effects on the eyes and skin.
Radiation referenced Chapter V are as follows:
The exposure limit values for non-coherent radiation are given in ANNEX XXXVII, Part I.
The exposure limit values for laser radiation are given in ANNEX XXXVII, Part II.
As part of the risk assessment, the employer shall assess and, if necessary, measure and / or calculate the levels of optical radiation to which workers may be exposed. The methodology applied in assessment, measurement and / or calculations shall follow the standards of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in respect of laser radiation and the recommendations of the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) and the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) with regard to coherent radiation.
If the risk assessment shows that the exposure limit values may be exceeded, the employer shall devise and implement an action plan comprising technical and / or organizational measures designed to prevent the exposure exceeding the values limit.
Based on the assessment of risks, workplaces where workers could be exposed to levels of optical radiation in excess of the exposure limit values shall be indicated by appropriate signs. The areas in question shall be identified and access to them limited where this is technically possible.
The employer shall adapt the measures referred to in this Article to the requirements of workers belonging to particularly sensitive risk groups.
______________________________Sanctions (Chapter VI)The Cape We define sanctions is the responsibility of the employer and the manager is paid by the competent doctor.Employer
Employer and Manager
Company doctorThe competent doctor shall be punished by imprisonment of up to three months or a fine of between € 400 to € 1,600 for the violation of Articles 185 and 186.
FIRE PREVENTIONRegarding the fire mtm consulting s.r.l. offers the following services:
______________________________OBLIGATIONS AND SANCTIONS
Article. 46 of Legislative Decree no. 81/2008 (which recalls the applicability of the DM 10.03.1998 until the adoption of specific decrees) define the appropriate measures to take to prevent fires and to protect the safety of workers.
The risk of fire is certainly one of the greatest risks for any workplace, and a proper information and training of workers is certainly the best prerequisite for an effective "security management" in a business setting.
It is in fact established that at least 50% of the fires can be attributed in some way, directly or indirectly, to the so-called "human factor", ie the fact that often people make wrong actions that they should not perform if advised, or even sometimes They do not perform the correct actions that could avoid or minimize foreseeable risk situations.
To achieve these "correct" behavior is, however, necessary to sensitize all employees on safety issues, and it is also necessary formarne in more depth some, which can then be delegated tasks "implementation of fire prevention and fire fighting, evacuation of workers in case of serious and immediate danger, rescue and first aid, however, emergency management (D.Lgs.81 / 2008 - Articles. 36, 37, 43) ".
For the reasons described above, the Legislative Decree no. 81/2008 and the DM 10.03.1998 devote considerable attention to the activity of information and training of workers.
The Legislative Decree no. 81/2008, art. 18 entitled "Obligations of the employer and the manager" provides that "... the employer previously designating the workers responsible for implementing fire prevention and fire-fighting, evacuation of workers in case of serious and immediate danger, rescue and first aid, however, the emergency management".
Therefore it falls between the obligations of the employer, who is responsible for the organization and the security of their company management, to identify how many and which instruct workers to implement fire prevention, fire fighting and evacuation of workers in case of danger and immediate and emergency management.
However, it is important to highlight that all the workers responsible must nevertheless be able to demonstrate that they have attended a training course, appropriate to the risk level of your company, and in this regard there are no exemptions.SANCTIONS (art. 46, co. 2)For the Employer and the Manager: arrest of two to four months or a fine from 1,200 to 5,200 EUR
CONSTRUCTION SITESAs it regards the management of the construction sites mtm consulting s.r.l. offers the following services:
