What is

business activitiy coordination?

workers controling risks
When there is a concurrence of several companies in the same workplace, all are obliged to inform themselves and their workers about the occupational risks involved in their activity and about the measures to prevent said risks. In addition, the legislation introduces a series of obligations for the owner of the workplace, who must act as a protagonist in this task of risk control and coordination of activities. It also establishes a series of obligations for the main employer, that is, the one who contracts with third-party companies to carry out part of his own activity. These obligations are mainly to comply with surveillance and control over the companies and workers that he subcontracts.

Royal Decree 171/2004, on the coordination of business activities, develops article 24 of Law 31/1995 on prevention of occupational risks, which emphasized the same sense. To carry out risk control, the Decree specifies the applicable definitions and concepts (work center, concurrence of companies, owner employer, main employer, etc.) and establishes a series of obligations for the actors involved.
