5 SACNASP CPD Points
The Occupational Hygiene Legal Knowledge short course will provide you with the required legal and working knowledge of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993 (and relevant amendments) in order to apply for SANS–ISO 17020 certification, and thereafter Department of Labour approval as an Approved Inspection Authority (AIA).
Aimed at occupational hygiene professionals and individuals interested in occupational health legislation, the course covers topics of legal terminology and processes, asbestos and lead regulations, environmental regulations for workplaces, regulations for hazardous chemical substances, noise-induced hearing loss regulations, as well as the general safety and facilities regulations in preparation of the national examination.
Leaders in the field of occupational hygiene and registered AIAs will act as presenters. You will receive copies of selected relevant standards for discussion during the course and there will be a balance between theory and scenario based teaching to ensure that you have a good working knowledge at the end of the course. You will be assisted to develop a framework to guide your business in the process to apply to be registered as an AIA and for SANAS 17020 certification. This was not specifically done in the past. This is however integrated in the lecture covering SANS 17020.
