Legislative Decree 44/20: Transposition of the European Directive on carcinogens

24
jun

In force since 24.06.2020

The Legislative Decree 44 of 01 June 2020 was published in the Official Journal of 09.06.2020 as transposition of a European directive of 2017.

This results in changes to Title IX - Chapter II of Legislative Decree 81/08 relating to carcinogens or mutagens.

In particular, this decree, which comes into force on 24 June 2020, modifies Annex XLII of Legislative Decree 81/08, including works involving exposure to respirable crystalline silica dust generated by a manufacturing process (which therefore becomes classified as a carcinogen).
This change mainly affects the sectors: construction (construction companies, earthmoving activities), marble processing, quarries.

Legislative Decree 44/20 also modifies Annex XLIII of Legislative Decree 81/08, where some occupational exposure limit values are added and some are modified. In particular, the limit value for hardwood dusts goes from 5 mg / m3 to 3 mg / m3 until 17 January 2023. This value will further decrease to 2 mg / m3 starting from 18 January 2023.
This change mainly affects the woodworking and carpentry sectors.

Companies that have workers exposed to this type of risk will therefore have to provide for:
- carrying out periodic environmental investigations
- drafting risk assessment of carcinogens
- preparation of the register of exposed carcinogens and sending to INAIL
- training for workers exposed to the risk of carcinogens
