OHS Training for Legislative Compliance

OHS Training for Legislative Compliance

Occupational health and safety (OHS) is something of great importance within every business, in any industry. Unfortunately, the potential for accidents, damage to one's health and general injuries are a real concern for many business owners, and if you want to protect your business from the negative outcome of non-compliance with industry-imposed regulations and legislation, then it is time to send your key staff members for OHS training.

At MAKROSAFE, we offer a training course called 'OHS Act for Management' which takes a close look at the fundamentals of the Occupational Health and Safety Act No.85 of 1993. This course is one that is dedicated to addressing all the relevant sections of the act and ensuring that the knowledge learned can be applied in the working environment with relative ease.

Attendees of the course can expect to learn the general responsibilities of the employer and employees, and the responsibilities of manufacturers in terms of substances and hazardous materials used in the workplace. Course participants will learn that it is the duty of both the employer and employee to uphold a high level of health and safety compliance, and just how to go about it on a day-to-day basis. Attendees can also expect to learn the difference between civil, criminal and vicarious liabilities.

This 1-day course is outcomes-based, which means that students will need to complete a knowledge assignment and create a portfolio of evidence to show that the information learned can be used and implemented in the workplace before qualifying. The main outcome of the course for employers is to have a staff complement that fully understands the basic principles of health and safety legislation, and what it means for the business if compliance is not upheld. All individuals in the workplace who work with or have access to areas within the business that present potential hazards or dangers should attend this course.

The training provided is in the form of presentations, readings, group discussions, individual activities and various skill application exercises. Our facilitators at MAKROSAFE are experts in the field and have a wealth of knowledge and guidance to provide your staff members with. We encourage all those looking to achieve and maintain legislative compliance in terms of health and safety to get in touch with us via email or telephone, to discuss our OHS training program and how it can assist your business. Let MAKROSAFE ensure that your business is doing what it can to protect its staff, customers and image.
