In terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1983 (Act 85 of 1993) as amended, a workplace with more than 20 employees is required to have a Health and Safety Representative. Health and Safety Representatives are required to have certain knowledge and skills to perform their functions.
Businesses often lack the knowledge and understanding of their legal responsibilities in this area and are unsure where to begin when it comes to implementing workplace safety measures.
This interactive and practical two-day workshop aims to provide delegates with a working knowledge of occupational health and safety that can be applied to any business environment. Delegates will gain the knowledge needed to ensure workplace compliance with the South African Occupational Health and Safety Act, and leave the course with the skills to effectively implement best practices that are legally compliant and applicable to any workplace.
Who should attend?
This is a 2-day workshop intended for Health and Safety Representatives, Shop Stewards and any employer or employee who is concerned about health and safety in the workplace.
