Qualified Staff Training:
Mag. (FH) Christian Bayer
More than 7,000 participants attend training courses at the TÜV AUSTRIA Academy every year. About 50 % complete a qualified training with a recognized certificate or report.
Nearly 200 fatal occupational accidents happen every year in Austria. Companies and industrial accident prevention are called upon to protect their employees. Government regulations more and more target the personal responsibility of the companies. This also brings about higher liability risks and penalties.
Companies which are aware of this responsibility will therefore increase their activities and minimize their risks vis-à-vis authorities – but also vis-à-vis contractual partners and suppliers. Education and further training according to the state of the art and knowledge about the legal consequences are thus becoming more and more important.
For 20 years TÜV AUSTRIA Academy has had an important function for further training and qualification in the fields of safety, technology, environment and quality and is offering assistance for drawing-up tailor-made education plans.
