Labour Inspections 2020: your company under the microscope
The labour inspectorate Dienst Toezicht Welzijn op het Werk (TWW) [Service for Supervision of Well-being at Work] is organising its annual inspection campaigns once again in 2020. These inspections are scheduled for this year.
During each visit, the inspector analyses the well-being policy of the employer, and checks how an organisation deals with each domain of the well-being law. Shortcomings or infringements lead to verbal or written recommendation, a warning, or even the cessation of the activity.
Emphasis on local campaigns
In addition to national inspections, the TWW service also puts a lot of effort into regional campaigns. This will help you to:
- raise sectoral awareness concerning the problem of prevention;
- take a baseline measurement to monitor the impact of the inspection;
- to remind sectors of their responsibilities and, where appropriate, to support them in drawing up an action plan.
