Developing an Inspection System between the Main Employer and the Sub-employers in terms of Occupational Health and Safety: A Case Study

Fahri Kasap [1] , Hafiz Hulusi Acar [2]


A healthier and safer working environment can be provided through a more proactive approach with the different auditing systems. The relevant laws and regulations must be developed and applied to employer and sub-employers within the frame of an inspection system. The aim of the study is to examine the primary employer and sub-employer relationship established under the roof of large industrial enterprises in terms of occupational health and safety and to create a healthy and safe working environment where legal requirements are fulfilled. In situations where the primary employer and sub-employer relationship is established within the work, the occupational health and safety activities of the sub-employer need to be audited by the primary employer and the matters to be audited have been determined. Four audits to be made by the principal employer at least annually have revealed the situation in occupational health and safety activities with numerical data. Within the scope of the study, the audits conducted in 2017 on the primary employer and five affiliated sub-employers, which were taken as models, have been explained. While the primary employer and sub-employer relationship is continued by many authorities as a matter of debate, this study sets forth a model about the creation of legal responsibility and safe working environment. The audits must be made sustainable.
