What is the need for workplace safety training

The need for workplace safety training in Bulgaria stems from legislative requirements that are imposed within the European Union.

As part of the legislative framework for health and safety at work in Bulgaria, all employers are obliged to take the necessary measures to protect the health and safety of their employees. This includes establishing safe working conditions, providing the necessary protective equipment, and training staff to carry out their tasks safely.

Workplace safety training is important because it reduces the risk of work-related incidents and accidents. This not only improves employee health and safety, but also improves productivity and efficiency of work processes.

In addition to legislative requirements, workplace safety training is also necessary to build a safety culture in the work environment. This helps to establish good safety practices and maintain a consistently high level of awareness and attention to workplace hazards.

Which laws and regulations apply to workplace safety training

Workplace safety training in Bulgaria is regulated by a number of laws and regulations, including:

Occupational Health and Safety Act - This Act sets out the rights and obligations of employers and workers in the area of occupational health and safety, and the requirements for training workers in this area.

Ordinance No. 3 of 26.05.2004 on the procedure for organizing and conducting training of workers on occupational health and safety - this ordinance sets out detailed requirements for organizing, conducting and documenting occupational health and safety training.

Ordinance No. 4 of 12.05.2004 on the minimum requirements for safety and health at work - this ordinance defines the minimum requirements for safety and health at work, including training requirements for workers.

Labour Law - This law regulates general working conditions, including the rights and obligations of employers and workers in the area of occupational health and safety.

These laws and regulations are among the main legislative documents that regulate workplace safety training in Bulgaria. In addition to these, there are other regular or temporary acts issued by the competent authorities which may specify and supplement the requirements for workplace safety training.
