Elia offers a number of training programmes to ensure that all contractors working in Elia infrastructure receive all the safety-related information they need. These training programmes are tailored to each profile and work types. Once you successfully complete the training programmes and submit the necessary documentations, you will be issued with a safety certificate in the form of a badge. This badge is mandatory for anyone wishing to do work for Elia.

Elia consider 2 different profiles working in Elia infrastructure: worker and work leader.

 

What is a worker?

Anyone working in Elia infrastructures must know enough about the risks posed by the tasks to be performed and the working environment to enable them to interpret the safety measures put in place. Worker certificates are issued as confirmation that a worker is familiar with the risks posed by working in Elia infrastructures.

A worker is a person working under the supervision of a work leader.

 

What is a work leader?

The work leader is the person who receives the work permits and safety documents. As such, he must also be capable of cross-checking safety measures. He is Elia’s contact person for the work implementation stage and is responsible for safety while the work described in their work permit is being performed.

The work leader is responsible for the safety of his team members and of his possible subcontractors. Work leader therefore have to follow a more advanced training programme. If he completes it successfully, he receives a work leader certificate.
