Emergency Planning Training Course


Emergency Planning Course

At most companies in South-Africa, emergency planning is not prioritised. Unfortunately in recent years, it has become increasingly important. We often don’t understand the risks our company faces every day. With increased violent strikes and riots, it’s essential to understand the basic emergency procedures.

With our emergency planning training course, you will learn the basic of emergency planning. This includes incident like fire, bomb threats, evacuation procedures etc. Employees are the driving force behind any company. Keeping the safe against the elements is the employer’s responsibility. It’s important to understand the risk of not having an effective emergency plan in place. For example, if there is a fire, it’s important that all the employees move to a designated point. If the employees don’t know where to go in this situation, you may have employees trapped in your burning building.

If your employees understand the procedures, you can improve the safety of your employees. We also offer safety related services on-site. We often see that companies have massive alarms and early warning systems. During our investigation, we found that 99% of employees don’t know the different siren sounds. This means that companies are spending money on the wrong things. An alarm with 5 different signals means nothing to an employee without the knowledge to know the different tones. Emergency planning should be discussed with all the employees. Safety drills should be held regularly to ensure that everybody understands the drill.

Our emergency planning course can be done for individuals or groups. If you require emergency planning training for more than 10 students, we can offer on-site training. Be responsible; get adequate training that can save lives.

Safety Induction Training


Safety Induction Training

Safety induction training is a very basic short course. However, it’s vastly underestimated. It’s easy to assume that everybody understands the basics of health & safety in the workplace. Most people do not understand health & safety in the workplace. Preventing injuries and accidents should be a combined effort. Management should take responsibility for the training and education related to safety. This very basic safety induction training course will educate employees on the very basics. Knowing the basics can make all the difference in the world.

Any company that takes health & safety to heart will have safety induction training. For example, if you visit a mine, you need to complete basic safety induction training before you can enter the premises. This is to ensure that accidents and injuries are kept to a bear minimum.

Safety Induction Training Modules:


  • Important Legislation
  • Basic Fire Prevention and Fighting.
  • General Plant Safety.
  • Working with Machines.
  • Using Protective Equipment.
  • Using Hand Tools.
  • Using Electrical Equipment.
  • Forklift Trucks and Cranes.
  • General uses for Operating Machines
  • Basic First-Aid Incident Procedures.
  • Safety Signs.
  • Good Housekeeping.

Every floor employee should provide this basic safety induction course. In short, it explains basic prevention and procedures. Some employees might not know what certain safety signs mean. This can be extremely dangerous. If an employee gets injured at work, it’s the employer’s responsibility to prove that all the required measures were taken to prevent the incident. Not having proof of safety induction training will not sit well with authorities. We always suggest keeping the attendance register on file. Have all the employees that attend sign that they attended and understand the training. This can be very useful during an accident investigation.

Prevention is always better than cure. The OHS Act 0f ’93 clearly states that the employer must ensure the safety of all employees. Starting with safety induction training is the right thing to do. If you need additional help with your safety program, feel free to ask us. We provide full health & safety auditing and implementation services. Don’t wait until tragedy strikes. Get your health & safety program running effectively.

If you have enough employees, we can do your safety induction training on-site. It usually takes less than 2 hours.
