Subsection II.
The procedure for adopting the safety measures with regard to persons responsible for the significant risk


Article 16.7.5.

1.

Safety measures are taken in writing. If an immediate action is required, safety measures may also be verbally taken.

2.

When safety measures are taken in writing, this is done through the notification of the order containing the safety measures.

3.

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.

4.

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.

5.

The written confirmation stated in 3, second paragraph, and the order stated in 2, include at least:

  1. a description of the significant risk that makes it necessary to adopt safety measures;
  2. a description of the safety measures which are necessary and the possible implementation period.

6.

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.
