Keynotes, sports events and talks round off the program.

Apprenticeship at Fronius

Apprenticeships have played a key role at Fronius since the company was founded. Today, this form of training is our way of sustainably countering the shortage of skilled workers.


Fronius Training Center

The Fronius Training Center at the Sattledt site first opened its doors in September 2023. It offers all Fronius employees a modern facility for knowledge transfer and for meetings across an area covering 700 m².

Employee health and safety

The health and safety of our employees is a key element of the Fronius value culture and is a very high priority for us. We prevent accidents at work and work-related illnesses by adhering to high standards and through making continuous improvements. We are also constantly working to establish and further develop a health-promoting infrastructure.

Mental health

Social Coaches

Two social coaches were hired last year to optimize integration of the growing number of employees on the shop floor and to further improve working conditions. These support the integration of new employees but also advise and support existing teams and managers.

Customer health and safety

At Fronius, product safety is a top priority. We only sell equipment that is safe for its intended use and complies with the applicable national safety regulations in the sales markets.

Perfect Welding

Health protection in welding has many aspects, ranging from reducing the harmful effects of welding fumes to ergonomic design of the equipment. We at Fronius want to counteract a certain recklessness in specialist companies, firstly at the product level and secondly by stepping up our public relations work. Our primary goal here is to draw attention to the potential dangers of welding and to provide suitable preventive measures.

We want to provide explanations: 

We provide answers to the following questions: What measures can be taken to prevent and eliminate risks? How are these measures properly implemented?

Welding helmets with a fresh air supply, extraction hoods, and extraction tables reduce exposure to fumes, for instance, and special fume extraction torches neutralize the welding fumes right at the source. All these measures protect workers and others around them. We are striving to make this multi-faceted, highly skilled profession even safer for future generations

Produktsicherheit Training Solar Energy

Solar Energy

Our products and solutions meet the strictest safety standards and are subject to continuous further development. This enables us not only to minimize all risks during operation, such as electric shock, but also to further increase safety for all involved with forward-looking concepts and technologies. One example: to ensure that there is sufficient space for handling, the connection area of an inverter has been planned and designed accordingly. In addition, swapping or reversing the polarity of plugs is almost impossible thanks to a well thought-out design of the plug connection between the boards. This makes the installation of our products and solutions safe and avoids repair errors.

The topic of safety is also reflected in our extensive range of further training courses: Every year, we teach the proper commissioning and handling of Fronius' holistic energy systems in numerous classroom and online training courses and webinars. In 2023, we welcomed 24,824 participants to a total of 1,052 training courses and seminars.

Produktsicherheit Perfect Charging

Perfect Charging

Safety is the number one priority when charging traction batteries. Following all safety requirements minimizes the risk of accidents, such as electric shock or the inhalation of harmful gases and vapors. We inform our customers about the safety measures they need to take, for example we recommend ventilation of charging spaces in line with standards, the implementation of an external start/stop function and to avoid sparks between charging contacts. Our experts continue to offer support after the charging infrastructure has been commissioned by performing regular safety inspections.

Data from our digital solutions (I-SPoT Viewer and Charge & Connect) help to identify application errors and devise specific training measures.
