Working environment representatives and supervisors within the working environment organisation must be offered supplementary training of a minimum of 1½ days for every function year, i.e. for as long as they are functional within the working environment organisation. Training courses totalling 1½ days must be offered, and it must be possible to start them within the same function year.

Supplementary working environment training must ensure relevant updating and underpin the expertise of working environment representatives and supervisors within the working environment organisation.

In enterprises with working environment organisations, a skills development plan must be compiled for the supplementary training courses to be offered to working environment representatives and supervisors within the working environment organisation. This skills development plan must take into account the needs of the enterprise’s working environment.
