Safety measures can include, among other things:
Expenses incurred for the enforcement of safety measures are wholly or partially at the expense of the persons responsible for causing the significant risk.
The due amounts are collected and recovered in accordance with the provisions of Articles 16.5.1 to 16.5.4 inclusive.
Safety measures are taken in writing. If an immediate action is required, safety measures may also be verbally taken.
When safety measures are taken in writing, this is done through the notification of the order containing the safety measures.
If safety measures are verbally taken and the persons responsible for the significant risk are not present, then a written notice is left on-site in a visible place.
By means of a written confirmation, the persons responsible for the significant risk are informed of the verbally taken safety measures within five working days after they have been taken. This written confirmation is done by means of a notification.
The Flemish Government can stipulate that the written confirmation stated in § 3, second paragraph and the order stated in § 2 be distributed electronically. In that case, it stipulates more detailed conditions for this.
The written confirmation stated in § 3, second paragraph, and the order stated in § 2, include at least:
The Flemish Government can stipulate which authorities need to be informed regarding the safety measures taken, as well as the way in which this should be done.
The persons against whom safety measures have been taken are informed of the order for the official or reasonably requested withdrawal of safety measures within a period of ten days. This is done by means of a notification.
The period stated in the first paragraph starts on the day on which the order comes into effect.
