Occupational Health & Safety



SAFETY STARTS WITH YOU! Safety in the Workplace is everyone’s responsibility. Knowing what not to do, is just as important as knowing what to do.

Unsafe conditions are only a contributing factor in 10% of incidents experienced – it is employee actions or lack of correct actions that contribute to 88% of all incidents. Health and safety is everyone’s responsibility from the CEO to the workers. The Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1993, requires the employer to bring about and maintain, as far as reasonably practicable, a work environment that is safe and without risk to the health of the workers. The Act is based on the principle that dangers in the workplace must be addressed by communication and cooperation between the workers and the employer. The workers and the employer must share the responsibility for health and safety in the workplace. Both parties must proactively identify dangers and develop control measures to make the workplace safe. The employer must provide and maintain all the equipment that is necessary to do the work, and all the systems according to which work must be done, in a condition that will not affect the health and safety of workers. With all of this in mind, Employers are ultimately protecting themselves and their companies by ensuring their staff is sufficiently trained on all matters pertaining to health and safety in the workplace.

LEAD BY EXAMPLE Employers have a legal responsibility to educate employees on all workplace safety standards and the hazards that their employees may face while on the job – providing effective safety training meets that responsibility

The goals of occupational safety and health (OSH) skills programs and qualifications include to foster a safe and healthy work environment. OHS may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, and many others who might be affected by the workplace environment. There are multiple levels of training applicable to the field of occupational health and safety (OHS). Programs range from individual non-credit certificates, focusing on specific areas of concern, to full Degrees, including those that cater for Safety, Health and the Environment (SHE). Smaller companies often don’t have full-time safety specialists on staff, thus they appoint an employee to shoulder the responsibility. Programs such as these are often adequate tools in building a strong educational platform for new safety supervisors and managers with a minimal outlay of time and money

Alute SA has structured and registered the OHS Skills Programs in such a manner that persons who successfully complete Skills Programs OHS SP1 to OHS SP7, would automatically have satisfied all the requirements for the National Certificate. In other words, you not only receive accredited certificates and credits for the programs you complete, but will also achieve a full internationally recognised National Certificate: Occupational Health, Safety and Environment (SAQA ID 74269
