The Italian world of work has seen the launch of a new tool for the assessment and management of risks in the workplace: the application to reduce risks at work of INAIL.

The application is based on scientific research and methodological criteria to facilitate risk assessment and management in the workplace. It was created to implement Article 28 of the 2008 Decree on Risk Assessment and is aimed at companies and employers.

Occupational risk assessment is a complex and fundamental process to ensure the safety of workers. The INAIL application simplifies this process, providing an intuitive and easy-to-use interface. In addition, the application has been developed to be accessible even to less experienced employers, thanks to a series of tips and instructions.

INAIL has played an important role in promoting safety at work in Italy, and the application to reduce risks at work represents a further step forward in this direction. Thanks to this tool, companies can ensure the safety of their employees, reducing the risk of injuries and improving the efficiency of their business.

The following are some of the types of risks that the application can help identify, assess, and manage:

Physical hazards: These include exposure to noise, vibration, temperature extremes and radiation. The application can help identify areas where these risks are present and develop action plans to reduce worker exposure.

Chemical risks: The application can help assess and manage workers’ exposure to hazardous chemicals, such as gases, vapors, liquids and dusts. This includes the identification of hazardous substances, risk assessment and the selection of appropriate control measures, such as ventilation and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Biological risks: The application can be used to identify and assess the risks associated with exposure to biological agents, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. This may include assessing the risk of infection and selecting appropriate control measures, such as personal hygiene and PPE use.

Ergonomic risks: The application can help identify and assess ergonomic risks associated with poor posture, lifting excessive loads and repetitive efforts. This may include evaluating workstations and selecting ergonomic solutions to reduce physical stress on workers.

Psychosocial risks: The application can be used to assess psychosocial risks, such as work-related stress, burnout and mobbing. This may include identifying the causes of stress and selecting appropriate control measures, such as stress management training and work organisation.

Safety risks: The application can help identify and assess safety-related risks, such as falls, fires, explosions and machine accidents. This may include assessing safety procedures and selecting appropriate control measures, such as safety training and installation of protective equipment.

Informing and deepening these topics is essential to ensure a safe and healthy working environment. Knowledge of these issues enables employers and workers to adopt preventive measures and mitigation strategies, improving the quality of life at work and contributing to a happier, healthier and more productive workforce.
