The companies were first informed about what inspectors will inspect during an inspection through meetings. Furthermore, information material was made available to the companies.

Subsequently, 86 inspections were conducted. The Labor Inspection detected one or more violations at 83 companies. What stands out is that many violations concerned primary safety aspects such as the absence of a first aid kit and fire extinguishing equipment.

Meanwhile, a large number of reinspections have been conducted, during which the Labor Inspection concluded that the companies had taken proper action to resolve the violations. The Labor Inspection thinks that this deserves a compliment and thus also acknowledges that cooperation is important to keep everyone safe and healthy! Click here for the factsheet.
