Training course for e‌mer‌gen‌cy res‌ponse o‌ffi‌cers

According to Section 27 A1 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations of the Employers’ Liability Insurance Associations, there must be at least one emergency response officer at business premises, if

  • more than 1,500 insured persons are working at a site,
  • more than 250 insured persons are working at a site and the type, seriousness and number of accidents requires medical professionals or
  • there are more than 100 insured persons working at a building site.

People may only be used as emergency response officers if they have attended basic training and the relevant advanced training course for corporate medical services. The company must also ensure that emergency response officers undergo further training regularly (every three years).

Highly qualified trainers communicate, among other things, the legal principles, information on positioning patients as well as rescue and transport techniques in line with the guidelines published by the employers’ liability insurance associations.
