Occupational Health and Safety

Course Description

Today, employers have a responsibility to protect the people within the workplace. The OHS training we offer provides employers and employees with knowledge and skills to handle potentially hazardous situations. A Health and Safety trained and experienced professional is becoming a sought after commodity, as there is currently a lack of this critical skill within the South African and global market. Our objective is to "Create a safe, healthy and prepared environment for all". Further to this, this course equips learners with the ability to understand and interpret the terminology used and objectives of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993. Learner program outcomes include exposure to the national and provincial structures of the legislation (OHS) and various sections and regulations of the act, with the aim of implementing important sections of the act, thus striving toward H&S compliance.
