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.
