Annual instruction is prescribed by law and serves in particular to prevent accidents. In particular, the knowledge of applicable regulations is refreshed and partly deepened, gaps in knowledge are filled and possible risky behaviour is made clear. In addition, the fulfilment of one’s own duties is strengthened, the risk of accidents is reduced and, finally, individual operational safety is increased.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act and accident prevention regulations require refresher training once a year.
