Specialist skills and preventive services
For some occupations and tasks specialist skills are needed which are regulated in Occupational Safety and Health law.
Certain jobs which involve particular danger for those doing them or for other employees may only be carried out by workers who can provide evidence of specialist training.
Foreign safety experts who want to offer their services in Austria need a recognition for their certificates, attestation of competence or professional qualifications.
Foreign occupational health physicians need a recognition of their medical training and have to be authorised to exercise their professions independently
Workers may only be employed for work which requires specialist skills, such as operating cranes or driving forklift trucks, if they possess a certificate which is recognised in Austria
