This is a phenomenon that is common in our market and we are very familiar. What is it about? Some people who are NOT QUALIFIES - not licensed to perform these jobs offer this service to employers who belong to the group that was exempted from the obligation to have a person responsible for safety and health at work. Formally, the - legally, it not forbidden, but we strongly advise you to accept such "services". They will do an act and you will sign it as if you were done and that's it. But who is your guarantee for the correctness of such an act, WHO WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR FAILURE and / or lack of acts I REALLY drastic FINES INCURRED AS A RESULT OF THE SAME?, What if there is an injury at work, and you just act in this part is not correct ? In short, this is the work of the "black" or to say "gray" zone, starting with the fact that you can not legally - through the account to pay this "service", not to talk about problems and complications that can (/ will) occur as a consequence of failure acts. Neither are you such an "act" will not do it for free, and in no way guarantee its quality. In addition, everything you would thus "saved" can cost you many times more expensive due to the payment of Statutory penalties due to incomplete or defective act.
7. Accountant I have, did Risk assessment act. He does not have a license, how to check its quality?
And this is a common occurrence in our region. You can check the quality of the act so that, for starters, read it, but regardless of its quality, the act does not meet the statutory provisions if it does not license eligible (qualified and certified) persons or companies that are engaged in Health and safety at work.
We had a case that the employer, who is a butcher,show to theLabour InspectionRisk assessment Act (in its systematization nonexistent) job "washer for motor vehicles." When his accountant tried to explain that the act is valid, this would not quarrel with inspection and calmed down only when the inspector explained to him what was the main complaint. From this example shows how reasoning of people offering to do an act as if you have it done. They do not care what it says specifically in the act, but that "can" do without a license and is cheaper. This example occurred in Futog, and to him we learned from the proprietor when we hired him to work out the correct document.
