Labour Code

The consequences of a number of work-related accidents at work could be less severe if the injured persons were properly assisted in a timely manner. REMEMBER TO KEEP YOUR EMPLOYEES SAFE. According to the Labour Code (Section 10, Health and Safety at Work, Chapter 1: Basic duties of the employer, Art. 2091.1), an employer is obliged to appoint the employees whose task is to provide first aid procedures as well as to perform fire protection and evacuation procedures according to the fire protection regulations (regardless of the number of employed persons).

Choose an expert in the first aid training, and provide your employees with the ability to respond effectively to life- and health-threatening emergencies
