3. Course contents *

The course starts with a theoretical framework. After a brief historical overview of developments in Belgian regulations on safety at work and their European framework, a study will be conducted of the various sources of law with regard to well-being at work such as the Well-Being Act, A.R.A.B. and the Codex, labour law legislation, social security regulations, etc.

Aspects of safety and well-being at work are examined from various disciplines by means of one or several concrete safety issues. Each academic year, there is/are one or several central sub-theme(s), such as "safety at work in (sub)contraction", "safety and temporary agency  work", "safety and dock work" ...

The central issue will be divided into various disciplines. Per discipline one or more lectures followed by a practical exercise will be given.. At the end of the course, the various tasks will be dealt with in one interdisciplinary end task (policy advice) in which the acquired knowledge and insights are demonstrated.
