Did you know that an employer is obliged to instruct all operators of aerial work platforms with a valid driving license once a year? This is stipulated in § 12 of the German Occupational Health and Safety Act, § 4 of DGUV Regulation 1 and § 12 of the German Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health. 

With our annual instruction for operators of aerial work platforms, lifting platforms and co., participants can quickly and easily refresh and deepen their knowledge in just one hour.

Legal basis

(1) The employer shall adequately and appropriately instruct employees on safety and health protection at work during their working hours. The instruction shall include instructions and explanations specifically geared to the employees' workplace or area of responsibility. Instruction must be provided upon hiring, changes in job duties, introduction of new work equipment or a new technology before the employee begins work. The instruction must be adapted to the development of hazards and, if necessary, repeated regularly.

(2) In the case of temporary employment, the obligation to provide instruction in accordance with paragraph 1 shall be incumbent on the hirer. The hirer shall provide instruction taking into account the qualifications and experience of the persons hired out to perform the work. The other occupational health and safety obligations of the hirer shall remain unaffected.

(1) The employer shall instruct the insured persons on occupational safety and health, in particular on the hazards associated with their work and the measures to prevent them, in accordance with Section 12 (1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act and, in the case of a temporary employment agency, in accordance with Section 12 (2) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act; the instruction must be repeated if necessary, but at least once a year; it must be documented.

(1) Before employees use work equipment for the first time, the employer shall provide them with sufficient and appropriate information, based on the risk assessment, in a form and language that is understandable to the employees, about the following

1. existing hazards in the use of work equipment including associated hazards from the working environment,
2. necessary protective measures and rules of conduct, and
3. measures to be taken in the event of malfunctions, accidents and first aid in emergencies.

The employer must instruct the employees on the basis of the information in sentence 1 before they start using the work equipment. Thereafter, he must provide further instruction at regular intervals, but at least once a year. The date of each instruction and the names of those instructed must be recorded in writing.

(2) Before employees use work equipment for the first time, the employer shall provide them with written operating instructions for the use of the work equipment in a form and language understandable to the employees at a suitable location. Sentence 1 does not apply to work equipment for which no instructions for use are required to be supplied in accordance with Section 3 (4) of the Product Safety Act. Instead of operating instructions, the employer may also provide instructions for use or operating instructions supplied when the work equipment is made available on the market if these contain information that corresponds to operating instructions. The operating instructions must be updated in the event of safety-relevant changes to the working conditions and referred to during the regularly recurring instruction in accordance with § 12 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

(3) If the use of work equipment is associated with particular hazards, the employer shall ensure that it is used only by employees authorized to do so.
