Foundation for International Transfer of Skills and Knowledge in Construction

*Foundation for International Transfer of Skills and Knowledge in Construction(abbreviated name: FITS)

Foundation for International Transfer of Skills and Knowledge in Construction (abbreviated name: FITS) was established as an organization to provide necessary support for the proper implementation of workers acceptance, cultivation and so on, of each country trying to practice and acquire techniques, skills and knowledge in the construction and other field.

 

FITS has been commissioned by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism since March 2015 as the executing agency for the Foreign Construction Worker Acceptance Program, and in order to ensure proper and smooth implementation of designated construction activities, “FITS Consultation Hotline” has been set up to receive consultation from foreign construction workers in their native languages, in addition to conducting round visits to designated supervising organizations and accepting companies.

 

On the creation of the residence status “Specified Skilled Worker” this time, FITS has been recognized by the Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism for having the capacity to ensure the proper working environment of the foreign nationals with residence status of Specified Skilled Worker 1 and has been designated as the “Proper Labor Supervision Agency” based on a Notification regarding Specified Skilled Worker in the Construction Field.

 

To make use of our know-how, FITS will continue to provide support for skilled foreign nationals on their working and living conditions so they can focus on their work without having anxiety.
