Accidents, Meritocracy Italy: ” enough deaths announced at work ”

“The tragic series of events that occurred in recent months has once again rekindled the spotlight on the issue of health and safety in the workplace, whose figure on social costs (equal to about 40 billion euros, more than 2.5% of GDP ) and on the unacceptable loss of human life appears to be truly unsustainable. And consider that these are only known data, without counting the whole underground world, in which accidents at work are almost never reported “. Thus Meritocrazia Italia in a note.

“Significant data that require an immediate and synergistic reaction from all operators, through a radical change in the solution approach, because the drama can be avoided – notes Meritocrazia Italia -. Continuous and adequate information, training on specific risks present in the workplace. , in one to the adoption of fitting documents for the assessment of risk factors and pregnant models of organization, must be a commitment that no employer can escape from. The most frequent cause of white deaths lies precisely in the superficiality in respect of the most basic safety rules. On the other hand, the network of controls is inadequate, the inspection staff lacking, the training completely neglected and the investments in safety negligible “.

“It is unacceptable – Meritocrazia Italia remarks – that a civilized country should choose to abandon the culture of safety at work. Accidents and white deaths are the sign of an Italy with a short memory, which always traces the same mistakes. Always sensitive to the problem, Meritocrazia Italia deems it essential to immediately and concretely implement the Sinp (National Information System for Prevention in the workplace) and the qualification system for companies and employees; the adoption, and effective implementation, of a synergistic system between DVRs and the Organizational and Management Model pursuant to Legislative Decree No. 231 of 2001, to prevent and reduce risks at work, strongly focusing on the procedures and responsibilities of standardized controls and interventions; strengthen the adequate dialogue between Inspectors and employers , in the perspective not only of sanctions but of permanent advice in terms of health and safety in the workplace “.
