With a Risk Inventory and Evaluation (RI&E), you identify the occupational risks for your employees. An RI&E is compulsory if you employ any employees. Read how to make an RI&E and hear tips from other entrepreneurs.

How to draw up an RI&E

Making an RI&E is not difficult. But it does take time. On the Steunpunt RI&E website you can read how to get started right away with your own RI&E, what the costs are and which tools you can use. You will also find answers to frequently asked questions.

Occupational risks in the catering industry

Catering industry entrepreneur Margriet van Heesch tells how she was able to prevent serious eye injuries thanks to the RI&E.

Office risks

Entrepreneur Bob Veldhuizen explains how personal injury can run into hundreds of euros if you don't have an RI&E. In his workplace, stress and sedentary work are the biggest occupational risks. Veldhuizen gives tips on how to reduce risks and how to get started yourself for a safe workplace.

Mandatory from one employee upwards

The RI&E is compulsory if you employ at least one employee. This also includes trainees, volunteers, hired workers and temporary workers. Involve your employees in the risk inventory. They deal with many of the measures and see risks you might overlook. Do all your employees' duties add up to a maximum of 40 hours of work per week? Then you can use the Health Risks Checklist (in Dutch) and do not need an RI&E.

Update RI&E

As soon as something changes in your organisation, the risks may also change. Check your RI&E every year and update it. Or update it immediately when something changes that affects occupational risks.
