Occupational Health and Safety Training in Durban

Health and Safety training is a legal requirement according to the Occupational Health & Safety Act.



Health and safety training is an essential component of any workplace, as it ensures that employees are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to prevent accidents or injuries on the job.

By providing comprehensive training programs, companies demonstrate their commitment to prioritizing the well-being of their workforce. Effective health and safety training covers a wide range of topics, including hazard identification, proper use of equipment, emergency procedures, and ergonomic practices.

This type of training not only reduces the risks associated with workplace incidents but also promotes a culture of safety within the organization. Compliance with industry regulations and standards is also achieved through regular health and safety training sessions. Ultimately, investing in health and safety training not only protects employees from harm but also benefits the company by reducing downtime, improving morale, and minimizing liability risks.

All training programs can be customised to client requirements, including Unit Standards registered on the NQF (National Qualifications Framework). This is done by way of maintaining the outcomes of the Unit Standard and including client/site specific exercises, scenarios and workplace assignments. Manuals are customised with photographs, organograms, systems, process flows and other client specific works that learners will recognise and relate to.

Where Unit Standards or training courses do not yet exist, Alute program developers will be able to design and develop the learning programs according to client specific outcome requirements.


Training in today’s times is so much more than years ago where students had instructors or teachers and were expected to sit in classrooms while being lectured and then expected to remember everything word for word during an exam. Today’s education system is based on what the learner can do and not what the learner can repeat out of a book, thus the methods of learning are not limited to classrooms. Alute can deliver training in many ways and no matter which method of training the learner embarks on, there is always learner support.

Facilitators and assessors are available during working hours to assist and answer queries and questions from learners via email, WhatsApp, telephone, conference calls, skype as well as face to face appointments.


It is important to note the emphasis in South Africa’s post-school adult training is on full qualifications. One of the most effective vehicles in delivering qualifications to the benefit of all parties is Learnerships. A learnership benefits the learner, the training provider and the host employer in so many ways, including substantial financial claims for the (host) employer. Learnerships also accrue BBBEE points very easily for the entity hosting the learnership program. Alute has extensive experience in structuring Learnerships to ensure maximum benefits.

Alute is investing in an on-line LMS (Learning Management System) which includes PC and cell phone based platforms and will ensure even easier access to training programs and less time away from work to attend contact sessions. Learners can learn at their own pace in their own time.


Our training certification falls into one of three categories:

Non-Aligned – these are usually customised courses where the ultimate outcome is transfer of skills to employees to enable them to perform better and be more productive as opposed to training for credits on the NQF (National Qualifications Framework).

Unit Standard Aligned –is based on the SAQA framework but is either not yet registered or a Unit Standard (Short Course Curriculum) covering the course outcomes has not yet been published. These courses are still registered and accredited by other legal bodies like National Key Point, South African Qualification and Certification Committee.

SAQA Credit Bearing – registered accredited short courses, skills programs or qualifications bearing credits registered against the learners ID on the NQF (National Qualifications Framework).
