A joint advice of the social partners on the reform of health and safety at the workplace has been transposed into legislation. The official journal published two royal decrees that bring within reach a multi-disciplinary policy of prevention at the workplace. Employers will pay a basic rate for their external prevention agency, irrespective of the actual use of medical checks by the workforce. The system is based on solidarity and provides the opportunity to use, next to labour doctors, other expertise like psychologic or ergonomic care.
