Creation of the Chamber of Occupational Safety Technicians

Creation of the Chamber of Occupational Safety Technicians.

Creation of the Chamber of Occupational Safety Technicians.

Currently, it is not known, for sure, how many TST and TSST exist in Portugal, with CAP or TP. There will be a few thousand, many on the job, but also many who have taken the courses and have not used their knowledge in work practice.
It is a profession, with two aspects, completely given to the wind, because the entity that supposedly regulates the profession (Authority for Working Conditions) has no means to do so.

This has led to the profession being overlooked by a large part of employers and the technical autonomy of TST and TSST to be difficult to implement, as it is easily found in the labor market TST and TSST formed in completely online actions, without any practical experience, but which, for the purposes of legal compliance, are used by less scrupulous employers to guarantee ACT inspectors outside their doors ...
In the end, those who end up harmed are:
- Employers themselves, who are poorly served, with work poorly done or even undone ...
- Good TST and TSST professionals, who see their salaries successively falling because someone always appears on the market, with less professional ethics and deontology, doing harm or not doing what they have to do professionally ...

It is therefore necessary to effectively regulate the profession of TST and TSST, by an entity that fully assumes it and has the means to do so. An Order is out of the question, as TST and not just TSST must be included. The solution, therefore, is the creation of a Chamber.

To this end, among the legal requirements, a study by a credible entity (Research Center, preferably) is necessary, as well as some more actions, namely meetings with the parliamentary groups of the parties, in addition to others, expenses that matter a total of about 15,000 euros.

The group of volunteers, who honorably and proudly have been coordinating, has carried out some actions, in order to gather the contributions of the existing TST / TSST associations in Portugal, as well as all the other contributions that each of the TST or TSST, individually , has understood to provide well.
However, this creation group of the Chamber of Safety Technicians at Work (CTST) does not have the financial means to be able to pay for the study and other expenses, a necessary step to be taken in order to continue working to create the CTST.

It is requested, therefore, the individual contribution of each and every one of the TST and TSST who wish to see their profession regulated, with all the professional and personal benefits that result from it!
On behalf of the CTST creative working group, thank you in advance for all your contributions!

    Caros apoiantes da Campanha para a criação da CTTSST:
    Estamos praticamente a 10% do valor a atingir e os vossos contributos foram fundamentais para que este patamar esteja atingido. Mas precisamos de mais...
    Em termos de percurso, estamos a 25%, o que significa que teremos de efectuar um trabalho de divulgação ainda mais incisivo e apelativo, de forma a atingirmos os 100% do valor a que nos propusemos.
    Agradeço muito o vosso apoio e ouso solicitar-vos a colaboração no sentido de divulgardes a campanha pelos vossos conhecidos.
    Todos somos poucos, mas juntos somos mais fortes!
    A CTTSST precisa de todos nós, sem excepção!
    Muito obrigado.

    A criação da CTTSST será benéfica para todos os TST e TSST, como facilmente se entende! Mas há um caminho a percorrer e esse caminho foi iniciado e já teve a vossa contribuição activa e efectiva! Obrigado por isso!!!
    Para os que seleccionaram a opção com recompensas, individualmente tratarei com cada um a forma de ter acesso às mesmas. Se a opção for o livro, será entregue de forma a combinar individualmente. Se a opção foi uma inscrição no 10º VDS, a seu tempo irei solicitar para que se inscrevam.
    Muito obrigado pelos vossos contributos e perdoem-me a ousadia de vos solicitar que divulguem a campanha e levem outras pessoas a dar o mesmo passo que vos destes!
    Obrigado!
