Consolidated Text on Safety and Health of Workers (“Testo Unico sulla Sicurezza e Salute dei lavoratori” - Italian Legislative Decree n.81/08)

In Italy, the reference regarding legislation on health and safety at work is represented by Legislative Decree n.81 of April 9, 2008, also known as “Testo Unico sulla Sicurezza e Salute dei lavoratori”- TUS, which entered into force on 15 May 2008. The TUS has undergone several changes and additions over time, through correctives (see Legislative Decree 3 August 2009 n.106) and subsequent further decrees. Fifty-one technical annexes has been added to articles of the decree; they bring, in a systematic and coordinated form, the technical requirements of all the most important regulations issued in Italy since the war as of today. The legislator, through the TUS, speaks to companies, employees and workers emphasizing the importance of prevention and protection of health and safety in any work environment. It also deals with the regulatory aspects of risk assessment, health surveillance, management of the first aid measures, emergency and fire prevention.
