Why do employees need to be instructed annually?

In order to prevent accidents in the company, every employer must, in accordance with §12 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and §4 of DGUV Regulation 1, provide his employees with sufficient and appropriate instruction on occupational health and safety.

The instruction must be repeated at least once a year if the hazard situation and work task remain unchanged, so that the employees can refresh and expand their knowledge. When taking up a new activity, changing the scope of tasks, after accidents and when introducing new work equipment or technologies, a further specific instruction must be carried out.

Legal basis

The legislator prescribes annual briefings

(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. The instruction must take place when the employee is hired, when there are changes in the scope of duties, when new work equipment or a new technology is introduced, before the employee starts 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.

What is the procedure for annual instruction at GRUMA?

The legally required annual instruction serves above all to prevent accidents. In our safety briefings, the participants' knowledge of the legal basis is therefore refreshed and important course content is repeated. In addition, they learn everything about innovations in the respective area.

By analyzing accident examples from practice, the training participants are also sensitized with regard to potential hazards in the company, which means that hazards can be identified later and appropriate protective measures can be implemented.
