There is a well known principle, very often taken from granted which, if duly applied, would help companies reduce their occupational accidents:

the prevention (of a risk) is better than the cure (of the effects)


The SOPRANCIODUE group supports entrepreneurs and traders in all types of businesses to allow them to better face the occupational safety requirements and needs. This sector requires a strong specialization and today more than 5,000 companies rely on our Group and on the specialists we employ to deal in a simple and reasonable way with the required adaptations to changing occupational safety requirements and with retaining compliance to the law requirements in this area. But when do the consultancy and training services required for occupational safety become necessary? Easy: whenever a business, either public or private, employs employees or subject the law equates to employees.

In case the employer is not defined or the defined employer does not fit with the above criteria, the employer is the top management body.
