Prevention of occupational hazards

“The training referred to in the previous paragraph must be given, whenever possible, during the working day, or, failing that, at other times, but with the time spent on it being deducted from the working day”.

As we can see, training in preventive matters must be continuous, focused on the job and must be adapted to the changes that occur in the organizations, for which various methodologies can be chosen, such as classroom training, distance training or e-learning. The key to this training is to focus on the job, to be appropriate to the type of tasks performed and, above all, to be sufficient.  Not just any general preventive training will do; it must be specific and adapted to the worker’s position. The duration and methodology must be adapted to the needs of each position and to the degree of danger of the tasks involved. It is not the same to train a professional with electrical risk who works at heights as it is to train an administrative worker. Both professions include a multitude of tasks, but with a very different degree of danger.
