Safety Expert MVK

Safety plays a prominent role in the business operations and culture of companies. Often there is not enough in-house knowledge to meet all legal requirements and a specialist will have to be hired, or someone can be internally trained to become a Safety Expert (MVK).

An intermediate safety expert is able to advise the management in the safety and working conditions policy within the organization.

Aim of the training

The aim of the training is to provide knowledge and insight about safety and occupational health and safety aspects, as well as to train them in their application. This allows the trainee to translate these aspects into measures within the organization and to coordinate and perform the safety tasks.

After the training you will have a large amount of knowledge in the field of safety and working conditions policy. A number of skills have also been developed.

The training is SKO recognized.

The skills are divided into five clusters. The clusters below relate to how a safety expert approaches his or her working environment and deals with work-related situations.

At the end of the training, a Safety Expert has the following skills:

  1. Analytical ability
  2. Advisory skills
  3. Customer focus
  4. Integrity
  5. Planning and organizing


The training is given in approximately 7 months for a maximum of 15 students and consists of 6 modules. For exact dates you can fill in and send the application form.
