Training of the Workers’ Safety Representative (RLS) is a key aspect of ensuring the safety and well-being of workers within the work environment. The RLS is an important figure who acts as an intermediary between workers and the employer, working to promote and monitor compliance with workplace safety regulations.

The training of the RLS covers several key topics, including:

  1. Role and functions of the RLS: It is essential for the Workers’ Safety Representative to know his or her responsibilities, powers and competencies under current regulations, such as participating in risk assessment and promoting initiatives to improve working conditions.
  2. Occupational safety regulations: the RLS must have a sound knowledge of the laws and regulations governing health and safety in the workplace, in order to be able to monitor their compliance and propose possible improvements.
  3. Risk assessment: training for the RLS should include techniques for identifying and assessing the risks present in the company, as well as understanding the procedures for preparing the Risk Assessment Document (DVR).
  4. Prevention and protection: the RLS must be trained on preventive and protective measures to be taken to reduce risks at work, such as the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and the adoption of safe work procedures.
  5. Communication and consultation: the RLS must develop skills in communication and consultation with workers, the employer and other actors involved in the management of occupational safety, to foster constructive dialogue and involvement of all parties.

Training for the RLS is required by law and must be provided by the employer, ensuring adequate updating of skills over time. Proper training of the Workers’ Safety Representative contributes to a safe and efficient work environment in which all workers are involved in promoting occupational health and safety.
