There has been increasing emphasis by the Department of Labour on improving the overall health and safety performance of all industries in South Africa, to acceptable levels comparable with those of countries such as Sweden, Australia and the United Kingdom. The national SHE improvement initiative is dependent on suitably and adequately trained SHE practitioners, driving SHE within their spheres of influence in industry. There are limited training courses available in South Africa to ensure this outcome. This programme is designed to address this shortage particularly within the KZN province.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act of 1993 places responsibility for the implementation and management of safety on a number of people in every company, however very few of those responsible have sufficient knowledge of its content or their duties and rights in terms of the act. The programme has therefore been developed as a hands-on classroom-based programme, designed to teach delegates the skills needed to assist their companies in managing compliance with South African legislation, and to implement and maintain a robust safety, health and environmental management system. This programme is highly practical as it focuses on identifying and solving problems using critical and creative thinking.
