Health & Safety Representative: 1 Day – R750.00 ex VAT
The Health and Safety Representatives attending the course must be chosen by fellow employees through a nomination process and cannot be chosen by management! This ensures impartiality and attendees who will be able to truly represent the employee’s interests and assist management in implementing health and safety and looking after the wellbeing of the entire workforce and place.
The OHS Act’s intention is to create a larger OHS team structure that assists management in implementing compliance and achieving their OHS objectives. Together the health and safety team strives to maintain a high standard of OHS act compliance and effectiveness across the entire organisation, structure, and all departments. The approach is, the more people and employees understanding and implementing health and safety together within the workplace, is the better.
The representatives also assist with OHS-related inspections, risk assessments, incident and accident investigations and form part of the OHS committee, which feeds back to senior and top management and all the employees.
