Important hint

The practical exercises (e.g. donning and doffing protective equipment, etc.) shall only be instructed by experienced trainers. These practical skills cannot just be learned through a demonstration. Mastering these skills will require regular practice.

As and when required, we gladly put you in contact with an experienced EFFO trainer.



The measures and directives have no binding character whatsoever; they are expressly noncommittal and take into account the given state of knowledge.
