Basic training course: Prevention advisor level III

Your prevention advisor must keep up to date with all legal requirements regarding the well-being and safety of employees. He or she will establish a policy on the health, safety and well-being of your workers, as well as a prevention plan and an annual action plan. To be able to carry out these tasks effectively, it is essential for the prevention advisor to have the proper knowledge and skills.

 

Because of the corona measures, this training course will be held online.

Duration: 6 days

Why?

Well-being in the workplace is a broad field of expertise and includes occupational safety, occupational hygiene, ergonomics, environmental care, and psychosocial health, among others. As an employer, you are required to develop and review the prevention plan each year, which is then rolled out across your company.

A well-trained prevention advisor will have acquired the necessary knowledge on prevention and protection in the workplace, and will be able to put this into practice within the context and policy guidelines of the company.

Who?

All employers currently employing workers.

What?

During the training course, participants gain basic knowledge on well-being in the workplace and dynamic risk management. Theory lessons are kept to a minimum. The course focuses on practical experience in carrying out the tasks of a prevention advisor in a company-specific framework.
