FTS Safety Training Academy & Consultancy
RANGE OF SERVICES
We are proud to announce the establishment of the FTS Safety Training Academy & Consultancy and set out below the range of services currently available.
FTS Safety Training Academy, driven by a SAMTRAC-trained safety professional, offers a range of services in support of our quest to provide to clients a one-stop shop for their safety questions and concerns, including:
According to the Occupational Safety & Health Act 85 of 1993 as amended all defined organisations are required to conduct a risk assessment to identify and eliminate risk from the workplace such that, where the risk, or hazard, cannot be eliminated entirely then appropriate PPE, workwear and protective clothing (together known as safety products) are to be provided to minimize the danger or the risk of injury.
FTS PPEW SURVEY LEVEL 1
The purpose of the FTS PPEW SURVEY LEVEL 1 is to reinforce the organisation’s own risk assessment efforts and to assist the organisation to:
We believe that a safe worker is a productive worker !
The primary objective of the FTS PPE SURVEY LEVEL 1 is to complement the organisation’s current hazard and risk assessment, whether this has been done formally or not, by assessing the worker in the workplace and, for each area of hazard or risk, dealing with the following:
From this information, we will be able to verify, or recommend modifications to, the organisation’s choice of safety products that we believe need to be provided in the various departments in your organisation.
We will also report on other areas that may need attention, such as education and training, on how to correctly wear and maintain your safety products. It goes without saying that the decision to accept or reject these recommendations lies entirely with the organisation.
Finally, it must be noted that the FTS PPE SURVEY LEVEL 1 is meant as a tool to assist management to measure the success of the PPE provided in the workplace against their PPE implementation policy. To assist in this we will be scoring, out of 100, the organisation’s level of compliance with its implementation policy so as to enable management to monitor ongoing progress.
The price of the FTS PPEW SURVEY LEVEL 1 is available on request and includes:
Any additional consulting required will be billed at R500 per hour and travelling costs will be billed at R3.75 per kilometre as per the AA (www.aa.co.za). All pricing excludes VAT.
To ensure the complete success of the FTS PPEW SURVEY LEVEL 1 or LEVEL 2 we will require the following from the client:
This person will be required to provide the consultant with information on the safety products currently in use and should be able to provide explanations of the policy governing the use of the safety products at the time of the survey/inspection.
This person must also be able to identify areas or departments where the usage and/or wearing of safety products is not reducing risk as expected or where there are still areas of danger that require organisational attention.
TERMS & CONDITIONS & LIMITATIONS
FTS Safety Training Academy & Consultants accept no responsibility or liability for the recommendations offered or findings made.
As per the current Occupational Health & Safety Act 85 of 1993 as amended it remains the responsibility of the organisation to effectively procure and use such safety products as may be required for the work environment in which they operate.
Equally, we are ready to play our part in providing specialist knowledge and expertise which will make it easier for the organisation to meet this commitment.
FTS PPEW SURVEY LEVEL 2
We are well aware of the expense associated with providing the required range of safety products. At the same time, few companies understand the hidden costs of not providing the required safety products.
Accordingly, the primary objective of the FTS PPEW SURVEY LEVEL 2 is to move beyond PPE compliance and identify cost-effective solutions, such as ensuring the right product is used in the right place at the right time and at the right price, to the issues associated with providing the required range of safety products. We believe this is an important part of our mission as safety product suppliers.
The FTS PPEW SURVEY LEVEL 2 offers two main advantages, and several other advantages, over and above the FTS PPEW SURVEY LEVEL 1 survey as follows:
All this represents a real opportunity to add value through the more effective management of safety products.
Pricing for the FTS PPEW SURVEY LEVEL 2, as well as our other services set out below, is available on request as each service is tailored specifically to the needs and circumstances of individual clients.
PPE & Safety Training offers a range of PPE and safety training to ensure products and processes are correctly used to achieve maximum impact and compliance including:
Incident Investigation & Reporting to assist organizations in achieving maximum safety compliance cost-effectively and with minimum disruption including:
We believe that the appropriate procurement and usage of the range of safety products best suited to an individual client will not only ensure the safety and well-being of the worker but also provide a platform on which more effective performance development and management can be built. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss this further with you.
