SHE Rep Training

All companies in South Africa are subject to a variety of legal requirements regarding Health and Safety in the workplace.

Keeping up with the current regulations and ensuring compliance can be difficult and confusing to some companies.

Students will receive a certificate upon successful completion of a written and practical evaluation. Certificates are valid for two years.
