What it has been established applies to all entities belonging to the production chain of enterprises and to all contractual cases, including those that may already be implemented. Moreover, extensive monitoring activities are planned for the operators involved in the phases of the project as well as the related financial flows and the safety conditions of building sites and workers employed. Finally, a Labour Flow Monitoring Board will be established at the Prefecture, in which a functionary from the Labour Inspectorate and the representatives of the most important construction trade unions will take part.
