Occupational health and safety is a matter for the boss and the law!

Has it been a long time since you last had to experience a serious work-related accident resulting in injury to your employees? That’s great... 

Do you ascribe that to your systematic occupational health and safety management? Then we congratulate you.  Elsewise, you should not leave things to chance for too long.

Shortcomings in occupational health and safety can lead not only to consequences for the health of the employees involved. Many managers are simply not aware of the fact that they can be held personally accountable for the shortcomings in the event of a work-related accident involving their staff. Where there is injury to the person, there are far-reaching liability consequences, which not uncommonly can threaten the personal livelihood of those involved. There is even the threat of a prison sentence. 

The German Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health and other statutory provisions require among other things that the worker is sufficiently trained / instructed in the operation of the machinery necessary to perform the job. This includes the use of elevating work platforms. 


The employer

  • has to determine, by means of an assessment, the work-related risks to the employees and what occupational health and safety measures are necessary; 
  • must provide safe tools, facilities and equipment;
  • is responsible for providing information and for the implementation of instruction and training courses.

If you like, we can help you with this.


Thorough training of the operators of work platforms and lifting technology as well as bridge access platforms and tunnel inspection machines is the key to safe and efficient usage. We provide training according to the internationally recognised IPAF Standard.


We would be pleased to compile an individual offer for you.
