At the end of the checks, the military personnel found violations of the sector regulations and, in particular, the failure to train workers on safety in the workplace and the failure to undergo the required medical examination of employees, the lack of suitable safety systems to prevent any slipping with the potential for workers to fall, the use of non-approved operating machines and more. The owner was therefore reported and fines and sanctions of over 60,000 euros were imposed on him.

For safety reasons and for the presence of a worker “in black”, the activity was suspended and the owner was warned to regularize the position of the irregularly hired worker.
