Training

You simply cannot run a Health & Safety system without trained, certified and accredited staff.

How does a Health & Safety programme benefit my company?

  • All businesses rotate around the idea of generating money. So what is the cost of an employee’s life?
  • In the case of an Accident / Incident, are you aware that the concealed costs frequently amount to considerably more than the obvious costs?
  • Productivity standstills can be very costly. Do the calculations.
  • It has been proven that a Health & Safety programme is conducive to effective productivity. Contented and respected employees, who feel safe at work, are more productive.
  • Why you need to avoid legal consequences?
    1. Section 38 of the OSH Act – Offenses and penalties states:
      • Employees can be fined up to R50 000/ 1 year imprisonment or both.
      • Employers can be fined up to a R100 000/ 2 years imprisonment or both.
    2. Section 12 General Administrative Regulations - Failure to comply
      • Imprisonment of up to 1 year for all staff.
