According to the Court of Rome, the evaluation of risks in the workplace that the employer is required to carry out includes risks linked to characteristics of the country in which work is carried out. This includes, for example, so-called ‘general aggravated risk’ linked to the country’s geopolitical situation (civil wars, attacks, etc.). This can trigger criminal and administrative liabilities.
