Employers in the Netherlands must observe environmental factors in the workplace that may influence the health of their employees. This could, for example, involve:
- climate (cold, heat, draught, humidity levels, circulation of fresh air, sunlight)
- optical radiation, non-ionising radiation (electromagnetic fields) and ionising radiation
In a risk inventory and evaluation (RI&E) employers describe the risks to their employees. They indicate which measures they take in the Action Plan attached to the RI&E.
