The essential function of an inspectorate is to secure compliance with the legislation through labour inspection. However, the main function of a labour inspectorate evolves over time. The role of OSH inspection has been gradually changing as a result of the increased responsibility taken by enterprises with respect to OSH. Mechanisms for the self-assessment of occupational risks have been implemented to this end and OSH inspection concentrates more on preventative and advisory activities during inspection visits.
