Want to know more? Here’s a sample question that came in pertaining to office health and safety requirements:
Location: Belgium, Luxembourg
Regulation: Country-Specific Health and Safety Office Requirements
Question: Polish law requires that any offices with more than 100 associates needs to have a training and designated safety professional on staff, does any similar requirement exist in Belgium?
Our answer: Every company in Belgium must establish an Internal Department for Health & Safety at work (IDHSW). This IDHSW has several obligations for promoting and monitoring Health and Safety at work. Depending on the size and type of the company, this IDHSW can be managed by the employer himself if the number of employees is below 20. For companies with >20 employees a safety officer must be appointed. This safety officer must have specific basic knowledge (Level 1/2/3) of Health & Safety at work, also depending on the size and type of activities (NACE-code) of the company.
