SafetyNow Delivers Health & Safety Training in South Africa

Having previously lived and worked in Johannesburg, South Africa, SafetyNow founder Moira Gelman was recently asked, by UK training company Astutis, to deliver a health and safety training course to delegates from South Africa, Angola and Mali.

The course run by Moira was the International Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety, and was held at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg in May, and was attended by six delegates.

Out of the six delegates, four of them were self-funded as they were applying for jobs outside of South Africa, where it is a prerequisite that they have this qualification as a minimum. The other two delegates worked for mining companies where they have a significant number of serious accidents, so are sending managers on this course to help reduce these numbers.

The main difference between the International and National Occupational Health and Safety course is the law module. The International course studies International Law, whilst the National version studies UK Criminal and Civil Law.
