WHO SHOULD ATTEND

As an employer, your health and safety obligations go just beyond putting health and safety measures on paper to help reduce injuries in the workplace.

In terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), you must give your employee practical training before he can work, use equipment and machinery and know how to use the safety equipment to protect himself from harm.

For this, you’ll need to develop a training needs analysis to make sure all the people you’re going to appoint get the training they’ll need to do their job properly.

  • Junior Management
  • Safety Officers
  • Constructions Workers
  • Executives

ACCREDITATION AND QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK

The criteria for the accreditation of training providers define a number of requirements that include:

      • Administrative procedures and record keeping and policies.
      • Management review
      • Authorization of affiliates
      • Tutor selection, training and performance review
      • Issuance of training certificates
      • Learner Support
      • Delivery, Assessment and Moderation practices

NOTE: There are basically two different types of accreditation:

    1. The training provider or the institute must be accredited by a SETA. “ETQA” (Their offices, policies and procedures. This can be any SETA = does not matter what type of courses they offer.)
    2. Each learning programme or qualification is accredited with the relevant SETA “ETQA” who is responsible for this programme. Also note that the word “accreditation” does not mean they SETA accredited. It must say “NQF Accredited”.

 Before you can start with any course you should ask the following questions:

    • Is the course accredited and with what SETA?
    • What is the process and duration from start to completion?
    • Are there any additional fees for support to re-submission?
    • Entry Requirements? Do you charge for registration and why?
    • What discount can I get if I do more courses with your institute?
    • What after support and resources to you offer?
