As an employer in the Netherlands, you must be supported by a working conditions expert (for example, a company medical officer or working conditions service) in the event of:
- illness of your employee (absenteeism guidance)
- appointment examinations
- health examination: voluntary periodical occupational health examination (PAGO) or a periodical medical examination (PMO)
Organising your working conditions service
As an employer you have a choice in organising your working conditions service. However, whether you call in an external working conditions service or organise the support yourself, it must be certified. In the event of a tailor-made scheme the working conditions expert must be certified.
