According to the legal norms in Romania, employer has the obligation to take preventive training of workers in order to avoid accidents at work. The employer uses specialized personnel or specialized occupational health and safety (OSH) services to deal with specific training. In this paper we will present how effective OHS trainings are and what aspects should be addressed to improve them from a qualitative perspective. The quality of these trainings contributes both to the quality of the instructor and the quality of the material, which is directly influenced by the well-trained instructor. This study aims to analyse the statistical results of the use of preventive measures through OSH training before and after an accident at work. In the statistical comparison, we assume that the effectiveness of OSH training can only result from the achievement of their preventive purpose, namely the reduction of work-related accidents and, implicitly, the prevention of major costs of recovering the damage caused by these events. This study as well as the subsequent ones on the effectiveness of OSH training through material quality and quantity aim to integrate OSH training into the complex array of OSH culture, taking into account the principles of knowledge management.
