Health and Safety Plan Development Course

2 days – NQF Level 3

Safety Plan is a necessity when working on a construction site. South Africa is in a construction boom. This has however  lead to an increase of construction-related incidents over the past period. We need to work safer – Health and Safety knowledge is power.

One of the most contentious issues currently on sites are the safety files that are expected to be compiled, maintained and available by the contractor/sub-contractor. The average contractor views this file as a one to five page document (which cannot be further from the truth).

The problem in general is that the emerging contractor who normally knows very little about Health and Safety knows even less about what a Safety file or a Health Safety Plan is, and what it must contain.

This workshop will provide the delegate with the necessary information towards understanding this process more effectively.

Target Group

This course is aimed at all delegates who have had limited previous knowledge and experience  in terms of developing, implementing & maintaining a Health and Safety plan.


Working experience on a construction site; in a construction related environment or dealing with contractors.

Course Objectives

To equip the learner with the necessary knowledge and skill to understand and implement a Health and Safety plan, or for a contractor company effectively to ensure legal  and company compliance.

Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) Qualification Update

The HWSETA hosted a workshop on 8 and 9 March at the Aviator Hotel in Kempton Park, to discuss the new Occupational Certificate: Occupational Health and Safety Practitioner, in order to get HWSETA service providers to understand the content of the qualification, as well as identify potential shortcomings in the qualification that might need addressing in some way. Approximately 60 HWSETA service providers from across the country attended.

As can be imagined the session was characterised by some robust debate. A number of issues were identified by delegates which they perceived as shortcomings of the qualification. In summary the shortcomings hinged around the fact that the qualification does not contain specific elements of the right size, which could be used to provide training on certain legal compliance issues like, First aid training, Fire training, Health and Safety Representative training, risk assessment training, etc.

The following clarification was provided:

  1. Until such time as the Unit standard qualification teach out period is reached, there will be a dual system based on unit standard qualifications on the one hand, and the QCTO qualification on the other hand. For OHS, the quality control of unit standard training will remain with the HWSETA, whereas the quality control for the QCTO qualification will rest with the appointed assessment quality partner (AQP), which is DQS.
  1. The ETQA function of the SETA’s has been extended till March 2020.
  1. The Occupational Certificate: Occupational Health and Safety Practitioner, will be registered as soon as possible, with minor changes from the version circulated for comment in September.
  1. The Occupational Certificate: Occupational Health and Safety Practitioner, is designed for the training of Health and Safety Practitioners, not general health and safety training of the workforce.
  1. The Health and Safety practitioner cannot be the Emergency controller as well as the fire         fighter and the first aider, hence the qualification did not focus on providing him/her with      firefighting and first aid skills.
  1. The curriculum for fire training must be sourced from the Fire Prevention Assistant as part of the Occupational Certificate: Fire fighter.
  1. The curriculum for the first aid training will in time, be sourced from a new Occupational Certificate for First Aid/Basic first responders currently being developed. The name is not yet confirmed.
  1. For other perceived OHS legal compliance training, i.e. aspects like HIRA, incident investigation, etc., the curriculum can be drawn from the Occupational Certificate: Occupational Health and Safety Practitioner.
  2. More specialised aspects e.g. transportation of hazardous goods training will have to be sourced from newly developed qualifications in the field where it belongs, in this case transport.


Although a number of other aspects were discussed, in the opinion of the writer, the issues highlighted above, are the most critical.

All QCTO Qualifications for Public Comment, Qualifications recommended for Registration and Registered Qualifications can be found on the QCTO website, at, under Development of Occupational Qualifications.

Update on ISO45001 from Exemplar Global

Based on the latest information on the revision of occupational health and safety standard ISO 45001, the publication date could be extended to March 2018.

ISO/PC 283/WG1, the working group responsible for developing ISO 45001, met three weeks ago in Lithuania to work on text for DIS2 for clauses four to 10. The working group plans to reconvene in February in Vienna to complete the review of the comments received.

Based on current progress and the latest information from the working group, the expected timeline for the publication of ISO 45001 is as follows:

February 2017-WG1 meeting to complete a review of comments

March 2017-DIS2 to be edited and prepared

April/May 2017-DIS2 released for translation

June/July 2017-DIS2 ballot held

September 2017-PC283 and WG1 meeting to review DIS2 ballot results

If DIS2 is approved and a final draft international standard (FDIS) is not required, ISO 45001 could be published as early as October/November 2017. In the case that an FDIS is required, publication is likely to occur in March 2018.

“Given that work on ISO 45001 first began in 2013, we are now working on a four-year timeline, and the ISO Central Secretariat has approved a nine-month extension,” said Steve Williams, external liaison member of ISO/PC 283 and LRQA systems and governance manager.

“This reinforces the importance of ISO 45001 and the significance of its applicability to organizations around the world.”
