Working life certificates
The KATE project provides work life certificates to individuals with a foreign background with no charge. The project organizes these certificates in different languages to make it easier for the participant to understand their purpose and content. The purpose of these working life certificates is to strengthen participants’ paths to working life.
Through KATE project, participants can also achieve alcohol passport and hot work safety card.
- Alcohol passport is a certificate of alcohol proficiency indicating knowledge of Alcohol Act and how it’s supervised.
- A hot work safety card acknowledges that the worker and hot work permit grantor will have sufficient information of hot work safety. Hot work consists of, for example, working with fire and easily flammable materials (eg. welding and fireworks).
