The future orientation of accident prevention through professional associations demands a change in the requirement profile as well as training and further education of technical surveyors belonging to the professional institutions for statutory accident insurance and prevention.

Multi-level training and further education concept and measures to guarantee a unified level of qualification extending beyond BG for technical surveyors, with seminars and elements determined by the BG which both extend beyond their competence and are specific to it; practical experience should constitute an important part of the two year duration of the training; systematic illustration of all training elements and principle sequence; examples for the structuring of compulsory elements of basic training.
