Establishment, by definition, is the process of creating a new unit (e.g. factory, plant, office, etc.), workplace, or renovating, extending, converting, installing or installing machinery, equipment, appliances, whether or not they are used for productive or non-productive purposes after their creation. An accurate assessment and evaluation of the risks to the safety and health of workers is essential before any investment is made in the workplace. This process is extremely complex and is a priority at all stages of investment activity. During the course of this study, it was considered important to identify the steps in the investment process and the OHS criteria that may be relevant to the process elements that may affect safety in subsequent use. Taking this into account, the process elements have been listed in chronological order and the necessary actions have been interpreted in the light of current legislation. We have also identified the responsible persons and positions that are involved or should be involved in the establishment process. All this has been brought together to produce a summary study that can provide practical assistance in organising an investment process.
