The continuous dialogue between the members and the dialogue with the institutions are peculiar characteristics of the WG.
In the workplace, the safe use of systems that could cause an
electrical risk pursuant to Legislative Decree 81/08, also in relation to the characteristics of the places where they are in stalled, is regulated by the execution, pursuant to Presidential Decree 462/01, of checks on the safety devices.
