Periodical training sessions

Even after the passed first knowledge test, coordinators must be permanently professionally trained, including participation at expert seminars, consults and conferences in the field of ensuring safety and health of workers on construction sites. These seminars, consults and conferences must take at least 4 school hours.

The programme must entail at least innovations in the field of legislation that regulates the guaranteeing of safety and health at work on construction sites and one of the current problems in the field of ensuring safety and health at work on construction sites.

Every 5 years, the coordinator must renew his/her knowledge on safety and health at work on temporary and movable construction sites. It is considered that the coordinator renews knowledge if they attend a periodical training at least twice in the current year, i.e. which was preliminarily applied at the Labour Inspectorate.

A coordinator who was permanently professionally trained must lodge a request for the issue of the confirmation at the Inspectorate every 5 years.

The validity of the issued confirmation of coordinators who do not lodge an application for the issue of the confirmation on the participation at periodical trainings prior to the expiry of the deadline for the preliminarily acquired confirmation, will be terminated on the date of the validity of the confirmation and will have to once again undergo the first training and the first knowledge test.

If the candidate does not attend at least two training sessions every current year, they have to take a periodical knowledge test prior to the expiry of the 5-year period. The periodical knowledge test is taken in written form and encompasses the knowledge about the valid legislation in the field of safety and health at work. The coordinator applies for the test at the inspectorate with a prescribed form.

The validity of the issued confirmation of coordinators who do not lodge an application for the periodical knowledge test prior to the expiry of the validity of the confirmation on the passed first knowledge test, will be terminated on the date of the validity of the confirmation and will have to once again undergo initial training and the first knowledge test.

The candidate receives a new confirmation after the appointed commission establishes the participation of the candidate at periodical trainings and after the invoice is paid.
