SAFETY REGULATIONS IN THE HEALTHCARE WORKPLACES

The law n. 81/2008 gathers the regulations about the health safeguard and safety in the workplaces. It provides the duty of risk management, the designation of a responsible for the prevention and protection services, the designation of a specialist doctor for the surveillance of the operators and of the workplaces and a training focused on safety for all the operators.
In the healthcare workplaces usually we can distinguish between the risks for the workers safety and the risks for the workers health. The art.43 of the law 81/2008 also provides the legal guarantee both for other people attending workplaces and patients. In fact the law n.24/2017 at the art. 1 confirms that the care safety is part of the health right.
