Course Information:

The OHSPrac course supports learning towards the Occupational Certificate: Safety, Health and Quality Practitioner (Occupational Health and Safety Practitioner). 

OHSPrac tuition content conforms to all the theory content prescribed for the QCTO full qualification at level 5: The Occupational Certificate: Occupational Health and Safety, and once GA Environment, as the commercial entity, is registered as a service provider with QCTO, the relevant content covered by OHSPrac will be used as automatic proof of prior learning if the QCTO qualification is completed via SHEQ Academy. It should also suffice as RPL proof for other service providers but SHEQ Academy can not guarantee that.

The theoretical part of this course covers the following knowledge modules:

  • 226302001-KM-01, Fundamentals of Occupational Health and Safety, Level 2, 9 Credits. 
  • 226302001-KM-02, Fundamentals of Communication, Level 3, 6 Credits. 
  • 226302001-KM-03, Occupational Health and Safety applications, Level 4, 17 Credits. 
  • 226302001-KM-04, Occupational Health and Safety Management, Level 5, 38 Credits. 
  • 226302001-KM-05, Operations Management and Supervision, Level 5, 6 Credits. 

The course will be easier to complete if the attending learner has a good pass in English and Math Literacy at Grade 12 (NQF4) level. There is no need for previous OHS practical experience before attending, but experience will greatly assist learner progress. 

Open book, limited time, summative assessments are done at least 1 week after the course via the SHEQ Academy virtual academy site, on your own time. This is supplemented by a practical assignment. The assessments each contribute 50% to your final mark. When you log in for assessment, the rules are defined and explained. Certificates are issued within one week after a successful assessment and you can download them from the virtual campus portal.

The course will be easier to complete if the attending learner has a good pass in English and Math Literacy at Grade 12 (NQF4) level as well as some exposure to occupational health and safety principles and practices. There is no need for previous construction practical experience before attending, but experience will greatly assist learner progress. 

Learning material is provided on a 10" tablet which is included in the course fee. Open book, limited time, theory assessments are done within weeks after the course  through the SHEQ Virtual Academy portal. Practical assessment is in the form of a developed construction health and safety plan for a given scenario. Certificates are issued within one week after a successful theory assessment.

This course is one of many that together build up the qualifications:

  • FET Certificate: Occupational Health and Safety, the 
  • National Certificate: Construction Health and Safety, and the
  • National Certificate: Occupational Hygiene and Safety as accredited to DB Training and SHE Consultants by HWSeta.

It carries 3 credits towards the 120 to 144 credits required in the mentioned full qualifications.This course will be free of charge until April 30, 2017, whereafter it will revert to the standardised SHEQ Academy e-learning course price of R80.00 per linked credit when done individually and not as a full qualification. In this case it is 3 credits and therefore costing R240.00. 

Learners accredited with the full national qualifications will be able to identify, evaluate, advise and report on occupational hygiene and safety factors, in occupational environments, in order to maintain a high level of health and safety for workers in such environments. 

Learners credited with this qualification are capable of: 

  • Communicating effectively in a variety of ways.
  • Using mathematics to solve problems in real life and work-related situations.
  • Identifying problems and initiating actions regarding workplace hazards and risks.
  • Working effectively with others as a member of a team, group, organisation or community to attain operational competence in occupational safety and hygiene. 

    Rationale: 

    Learners credited with this qualification are likely to be working in the occupational safety, hygiene and environmental disciplines. Learners are required to integrate practical skills with essential knowledge, to be able to take proactive and reactive measures in order to maintain a healthy and safe environment. 

    In South Africa and internationally, the social and economic impact of occupational safety, hygiene and health, is significant. Direct costs that result from poor workplace safety, hygiene and health, include human and economic costs. Indirect costs are also incurred and may include poor morale, poor productivity and downtime. Improved workplace safety, hygiene and health, could influence the South African economy in direct costs alone to the value of millions of Rands each year. This qualification aims to meet the demand for learners that are able to facilitate a safe, healthy and productive occupational environment. 

    There is a critical need in the industry to recognise learner competence regarding essential operations associated with a healthy, safe and productive working environment. This qualification is the next step in a career path in one of the areas of specialisation in Occupational Safety and Hygiene and is generic enough to allow maximum mobility within the field of application. 

  • This qualification provides easy vertical articulation into either QCTO or CHE controlled higher level study.on NQF level 5 to 7
