If your employees conduct a specific work activity, they must have a license confirming their professional competency under the law. We’d be happy to provide this service for the specified professions.
With new-hire employees, employers must conduct introductory occupational health and safety (OHS) and fire protection training.
We conduct OHS training both in-person and through online e-learning, which is appreciated in cases where fluctuation rates are high.
We’ll flexibly adapt to the time available to you but recommend that you agree on a date at least 3 days in advance. We conduct both introductory and periodic training.
All our courses and training activities are conducted based on valid licenses issued by the National Labour Inspectorate of the Slovak Republic.
