How and when to draw up the Risk Assessment Document (DVR) and other specific risks.
Risk Assessment is one of the key aspects of Occupational Safety. DVR stands for Risk Assessment Document, i.e. a map of the risks present in the company, containing all the prevention and protection measures.
Article 17 of Legislative Decree 81/08 requires the employer to draw up the DVR, with the help of the Head of the Prevention and Protection Service (RSPP) and the Competent Doctor, after consulting the Workers' Safety Representative (RLS).
By means of the Risk Assessment Document (DVR) the Employer provides an assessment of the potential risks arising from the company's activity, while verifying its removal or management. The risk assessment extends to the working environment but also to the tools and machinery used, to the chemical and biological substances present or handled, to the rhythms of work and to the physical and psychological consequences that the work activity entails for workers.
Risk assessment is generally a complex activity that must take into account specific legal provisions, but also the structural and organizational peculiarities of each specific company. It is not an easy job, and it is always advisable to delegate it to a consultant specialized in the subject.
Why it is important to always draw up the DVR
By means of the assessment of the risks coming from business activities, it is possible to make a meticulous cataloguing of the real dangers existing in the company, even for apparently harmless activities such as climbing stairs. It is therefore a useful tool to increase and improve the level of corporate security, spontaneously and without special investments.
Who is responsible for drawing up the DVR
Legislative Decree 81/08 always places the employer in charge of drawing up the Risk Assessment Document. The employer can make use of other figures such as the RSPP and Competent Doctor. In addition, the consultation of the Workers’ Safety Representative is expressly reported in paragraph 2 of Article 29 of Legislative Decree 81/08.
