A Range of Safety, Health and Environmental short courses are presented at our training centres or at client sites. Our courses are unit standard based and accredited with the TETA and DoL.
Occupational Hygiene and Environmental services
By recognising, identifying, evaluating and controlling health risks in the working environment, organisations can reduce or even prevent work-induced stress, disease, inefficiency and accidents. We are an Approved Inspection Authority with the Department of Labour and our OH Services team consists of highly qualified and experienced Occupational Hygiene professionals, all certified by the Southern African Institute of Occupational Hygiene (SAIOH) as Occupational Hygienists, Technologists and Technical Assistants), totaling more than 30 professional staff members.
Risk assessments and monitoring services
The Occupational Health and Safety Act (1993 as amended) and the Hazardous Chemical Substances Regulations (1995), as well as the Mine Health and Safety Act (1996 as amended) require a complete qualitative OH Risk Assessment of the working environment in order to develop a plan of action to reduce Occupational Health risks.
By focusing on those environmental aspects that we believe affect us all the most, namely the air we breathe and the water that we drink, industry can reduce their carbon footprint. In monitoring emissions and projecting pollutant fall-out that will adversely affect air and water quality, organisations can manage their Environmental Impacts to comply with the requirements and intentions of the NEMA Act 107 of 1998.
