The IT explains and develops the content that the PRL must have, in accordance with the following:

1. Description of the activities carried out by the company.

4. Proposed corrective measures.
5. Compliance schedule
6. Date of completion and date of the next scheduled review (minimum every six months).

8. Signature and identifying data of the technician responsible for the document.
9. Signature of the owner or legal representative of the company in the PRL.
10. Proof of presentation and treatment of the ORP in the field of bipartite cooperation (Occupational Health and Safety Commission). If this bipartite scope was not established, the company must present a declaration in this regard and proof of communication to the PRL workers.
