Frequently Asked Questions

The abbreviation BHV/ERO can mean 3 things:

  • Company emergency response officer
  • Citizen assistance provider
  • Basic assistance provider
BHV is mandatory for every employer and also for associations and event organizers. This obligation can be found in the  Working Conditions Act and the Regulations for fire-safe use and basic assistance for other places.

Yes, our BHV / ERO certificate is valid for 2 years!
This means that the Emergency Response Officer only has to attend an ERO day after 2 years.

Policy rules on working conditions legislation
These policy rules are expired. However, they are the last described most concrete guidance for the government. It roughly stated the following: every two years, at least 8 hours are spent per Emergency Response Officer on refresher courses and exercises.

How often the ERO must attend a course is NOT stated in the Working Conditions Act. Of course it is good to practice a few times every year, such as an evacuation drill, but that must be done at your company. You must, however, be able to demonstrate that you have competent ERO’s and that is possible with an official NedCert certificate.

The Emergency Response Officer provides assistance within companies and organisations.

According to Article 15 of the Working Conditions Act, a company with employees and / or visitors must have Emergency Response Officers. The emergency response officers must have followed training. If a company is still small, the owner may be the Emergency Response Officer himself.

It depends, among other things, on the size of the company and the risks that exist in a company, how many Emergency Response Officers there must be. Click here for the NedCert online calculation tool to calculate the approximate number of Emergency Response Officers.

It was a great experience and learning. Rene did a great job to explain all the theories and the practical aspects. He also explained the reasons for certain actions, which are quite helpful and handy in the case of real life emergencies. I would recommend this course and NedCert of anyone interested in becoming the ERO.

A really interesting and engaging session. The day goes very quickly and I feel the information given is uncomplicated, in clear English and useful for what we will need rather than going into too much detail. I’ll be back next year again.

I had a great day with Rene learning how to help people in the office and learning what to do in case of a fire. I hope that I do not have to put these things into practice but I now believe that I will know what to do if I have to do that.

Well paced and informative training session that excellently mixes the theory with the practical to keep the interest level high. The content is presented professionally by a knowledgeable trainer but it never felt dull or boring or monotonous.

I took the ERO course at 'BHV cursus Amsterdam' and found it informative, thorough and enjoyable. The theory is explained well and guidance from the course leader was absolutely excellent, as were the practical exercises which give a very useful understanding of the theoretical knowledge (and the lunch was also exquisite)

I really enjoyed how interactive and hands-on this course was. Rene was a brilliant instructor, guiding us through each of the topics and ensuring that we all had a good understanding of what we needed to do. I also never thought I'd be putting out a live fire so that was a (exciting) surprise as well!

René was a very friendly, fun and kind instructor, while also being serious and not letting us forget or overlook any important details. Would definitely recommend to a friend or colleague.

Great fun course with a great teacher, very informative and it really makes you think about your surroundings, your own office and how you will react in certain situations. It shows that it is so important to be prepared and practice so that in potentially dangerous situations you know how to act and help yourself, colleagues, family and others you come into contact with.
