Learners completing the program can monitor the application of safety, health and environmental protection procedures to maintain the discipline of the safety, health and environmental protection system. They are able to monitor adherence, promote and maintain preventive measures, coach their work team and evaluate and suggest changes to the system.
The purpose of this program is to enable learners to apply basic health and safety legislation in the form of standards and procedures governing health and safety in the workplace, to ensure that they contribute to a safe, a healthy environment for themselves and others. www.eskilzcollege.co.za
Learners will be equipped to work in the construction industry with a broad understanding and knowledge of Occupational Health, Safety, and Environmental legislation and controls. They will be able to deal with health and safety problems and issues on construction sites.
This qualification is the first in a series for practitioners in the field of environmental science, environmental management and waste management. This series of qualifications will equip practitioners with the skills, knowledge and values to contribute towards the wise and effective use and management of our natural resources and ecological systems.
The specific purpose of this qualification represents the skills, knowledge and understanding required by competent practitioners to:

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).
The Introduction to Health Economics short course is concerned with behaviour, and how it relates to the production and consumption of health and healthcare. Health economics is different from other fields in economics, because of idiosyncrasies related to health and healthcare. For example, individuals can invest in their health through better diets and exercise, or disinvest through risky behaviours, such as smoking. This gives rise to efforts to influence healthy behaviours amongst individuals.
The implementation of the National Waste Management Strategy (NWMS 2010) and National Environmental Management Waste Act (NEMWA 2008) facilitates a paradigm shift over the philosophy and strategy of solid and hazardous waste management. The new paradigm requires us to look at solid waste and refuse as valuable resource rather than a waste as implied by the common meaning of the word.
Geographical Information Systems (GIS) can play a key role in helping scientists, decision-makers, and the public develop collaborative solutions to real-world problems. GIS mapping tools have become imperative for many fields, such as epidemiology, veterinary science, urban planning and environmental assessment. The Applied Geographical Information Systems short course is an introduction to a range of geospatial techniques used in the analysis of spatial data. Practical case studies are employed to help you confront real world problems and design a solution using GIS.
Variably saturated flow conditions are increasingly relevant to geotechnical and hydrogeological assessments. This is most evident in the so-called vadose zone that extends from land surface to the phreatic surface, and which is characterised by variably saturated hydrological systems mostly at negative pore water pressures.
This Basic Course in Geographic Information Systems short course provide you with essential theoretical and practical foundations to design a new Geographic Information Systems (GIS) project. Important skills that will be acquired during this course include: collection of data from various sources; building an integrated GIS database; analysing the data; and communicating the results. The course not only deals with the software but participants will also be able to do a GIS project using ArcGIS.
The Water Quality Management and Effluent Treatment short course provides you with a comprehensive overview of and practical insights into the various processes that are involved in the evaluation of drinking water quality, as well as water and wastewater treatment. The course covers topics of basic water microbiology and chemistry, biological treatment processes, sludge treatment and effluent disposal, as well as biological, chemical and physical water quality parameters, the flow of material and mass balances, among others.
The Environmental Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement short course prepares you with knowledge and insights to align company policies and objectives to current environmental legislation to ultimately minimise liabilities and interact with audit, inspection and enforcement processes. The training experience you will receive provides you with the foundation for environmental compliance, both in industry and in wildlife related human activities.
