Una immagine dal libro Arma dei CarabinieriThe Comando Carabinieri per la Tutela del Lavoro is in charge of ensuring compliance with occupational health guidelines and accident prevention regulations. Through the local Nuclei Ispettorato del Lavoro (N.I.L.), it operates in order to prevent labour exploitation of both minors and illegal immigrants and to prevent accidents in the workplace.

The Comando Carabinieri Politiche Agricole e Alimentari oversees agriculture and fisheries through 3 Nuclei Antifrode - located in Parma, Rome and Salerno - and a Nucleo di Coordinamento Operativo, active throughout the country. This specialised unit is primarily committed to ensuring that allocated EU funds are legally used, as well as to monitoring the production cycle ensuring the authenticity of produce. Particular attention is also paid to the verification of the quality of food shipped abroad as a form of support during crisis situations.
