About the course

The Occupational Safety Course is a Finnish national program aimed at lowering the number of accidents at common workplaces.

Course participants gain general knowledge about the risks and hazards that appear at workplaces, as well as about safety principles. The course consists of five major parts and lasts eight hours.

At the end of the training, participants pass an exam. Upon successful completion of the exam, participants receive a personal occupational safety permit (card), which is valid for five years.

Frequently asked questions

When do I get the card?

+

We deliver the Occupational Safety Card by post to the address you specify at the beginning of the course. The card is sent right after we receive the payment from you or your employer. Usually, the card comes to you in about 2-4 weeks after you pass the course. For the waiting period, you get the official certificates that fully replaces the card, so you can start working right after passing the course. The certificate is valid within one month or until you receive the card.

Can I get to work right after passing the course?

+

Yes, you can. After passing the course, you receive the official certificate that fully replaces the card and allows you to work. The certificate is valid within one month or until you receive the card.

How do I pay for the course?

+

The course can be paid within two weeks by you or your employer. At the beginning of the course, you specify payer's information. Based on this information, we send out the invoice via post or electronically. Once the invoice is paid, we forward the Occupational Safety Card to your address.

Can I attend the course online?

+

Due to the spread of COVID-19, the Finnish Center for Occupational Safety (TTK) granted a permission to course providers to conduct the Occupational Safety Course online. The course structure has not been changed. Therefore, the course still starts at 8 a.m. (8:00) and ends at 4 p.m. (16:00), including coffee and lunch breaks.
