Every company in the Netherlands, according to the law on working conditions required to have a current risk inventory and evaluation (RI & E) to have. The RI & E is the basis of the health and safety policy and consists of the following elements:

  • identifying the hazards in the workplace;
  • find out whether these hazards can pose risks;
  • make an estimate of the magnitude of the risk;
  • devise measures to reduce the risks;
  • make a plan in which the risks are arrested. in order of priority
