Occupational Safety Card training (in Finnish Työturvallisuuskorttikoulutus) provides the employee with basic information about the general hazards in the shared workplace and occupational safety. The aim of occupational safety card training is to improve the safety of shared workplaces. The occupational safety card is suitable for everyone, regardless of sector.
The person who has the Occupational Safety Card has learned to observe hazards and risks and to be aware of the factors that affect occupational safety. He or she knows how to prevent accidents and knows how to act in the event of an accident. In addition, the responsibilities of both employees and managers are reviewed in occupational safety card training.
The training lasts eight hours and the occupational safety card is renewed every five years. We have a long experience in occupational safety training and are provided by our experienced trainers. We organize occupational safety training both as events open to all and as organized for the company’s own groups.
