The RI&E must be performed before the official start of your business. When carrying out an RI&E, you must check:

  • which risks you and your employees encounter;
  • what measures you have taken in order to prevent harm to your own health and that of your employees;
  • what measures you are planning to take (Plan van Aanpak).
