Abstract

The increasing need for a labour in the Czech Republic and other countries of Central Europe will lead to employing of foreigner workers. It is possible to assume that foreigners will be employed in positions, where the chosen decision can result in major accidents with fatal injuries followed by environmental or a property damage. These actors include operators in chemical or power plants, etc. As can be seen from foreign experience, poorly understood information leads to wrong decision-making process of operator resulting in accidents. The aim of this work is to map the situation in countries with traditionally large share of working foreigners (for example UK, France, Germany, etc.) and to identify the ways for prevention of these types of accidents. Subsequently, to create the set of recommendations for companies, which desire to employ foreign workers.
