Recognised by the VDSI and VÖSI

The uvex academy is the first independent occupational safety training body to offer training seminars that are recognised by the German Association for Safety, Health and Environmental Protection at Work (VDSI) and the Association of Austrian Safety Engineers (VÖSI). The seminars are rewarded with VDSI or VÖSI points, which count towards the requirement for occupational safety managers to undergo regular training.

All events are suitable for training occupational safety managers in accordance with Section 5 (3) of the German Occupational Safety Act (ASiG) and Section 83 (8) of the Austrian Employee Protection Act (ASchG). In addition, the education and training facility is certified in accordance with the ISO 9001:2015 quality management standard as well as ISO 14001:2015.
