Section last changed: 01 January 2011
The training as mentioned in the first subsection, should include aspects that are of significance to the overall workload of the individual, cf. Section 46 of these regulations.
In order to fulfil the requirement for radiation protection training as mentioned in the second subsection, the Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority’s training requirements should be used.
As regards requirements for training of safety delegates and members of working environment committees, reference is made to relevant provisions in regulations pursuant to the Working Environment Act, laid down 6 December 2011. In addition, reference is made to the lawmirror (in Norwegian only) of the Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority, in which the requirement of the regulations that are being repealed upon entering into force of the new regulations in pursuance of the Working Environment Act, are included.
Requirements for training are also set for industrial safety personnel, cf. the Guidelines regarding the Regulations relating to self-protection measures at industrial companies. There, minimum requirements are set for training, but this does not exempt the business from its obligation to carry out additional training measures if risk and emergency preparedness analyses show a need beyond the minimum requirements, e.g. to enable the industrial safety organisation to handle special situations that can occur in the company.
