Specific Training for Workers

specific workers training course




The Specific Worker Training course allows the Employer to fulfill the obligations set out in paragraph 1 of the art. 37 of Legislative Decree 81/08, regarding the training of its workers.

The obligation concerns:

  1. newly hired workers: legal training within 60 days of hiring;
  2. workers already employed who have not previously been provided with any “specific” training or have only been partially trained.

The Specific Worker Training, in accordance with the Agreement of the State-Regions Conference of 21/12/2011, has a variable duration of 4, 8 or 12 hours which is determined by the risk class of the company (low, medium, high risk ) and by the task carried out by the worker. The topics of the course will refer to the risks to which the worker is exposed, the possible damages and the prevention and protection measures to be adopted.

Legislative Decree 81/2008 provides for Specific Training Update, to be carried out every 5 years, lasting 6 hours.

Theoretical tests will be carried out to evaluate the knowledge acquired during the course; a certificate of participation/training will be issued to those who successfully pass them.
