Performance of the construction site safety coordinator

Our company provides its own employees with the appropriate certificate for the performance of the construction site safety coordinator in accordance with Act No. 309/2006 Coll. Inquire therefore our services, we will contact you immediately.

The builder (investor) is obliged to determine the necessary number of occupational safety and health coordinators on the construction site, taking into account the scope and complexity of the work and its demanding coordination requirements in the preparation and execution phases.

Therefore, all contracting authorities of construction works for which a final building permit or notification of construction will be issued and which will be carried out by more than one contractor are obliged to establish the function of an OSH coordinator on the construction site. According to the opinion of the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs - Department of Occupational Safety and Health, it is considered to be factually incorrect that the award of a contract to a "general contractor" for a construction project implies, from the point of view of the builder (investor), that it is a construction project carried out by a single contractor. What is decisive is the actual state of affairs and therefore the number of undertakings involved in the construction, not the form of contractual relations between the contracting authority and the contractor and between the chain of other subcontractors in the construction, as is the prevailing practice today.
