Department of Labour Chief Inspector
Saiosh recently completed another round of OHS CPD Workshops. The sequence was Port Elizabeth, Cape Town, Durban and then Johannesburg. The total attendance at these workshops and our conferences for the year was more than 1000 members and visitors. Remember that these workshops are free to members in good standing as well as earning them valuable CPD points.
The topic for this tour was the latest news on the new OHS Bill as well as the changes to the Pressure Equipment Regulations and notes on the recently published Driven Machinery Regulations. The presenters from the Department of Labour included Jakes Malatse, Pieter Laubscher as well as the Chief Inspector, Mr Tibor Szana who presented at all four venues.
Saiosh are extremely grateful for the time taken by the DoL to speak at our workshops. The Chief Inspector who already had an extremely busy schedule, put aside time to be with our members. This is not the first time that Mr Szana has dedicated time to talk to practitioners on the work that he does and the interaction between the DOL and the OHS practitioners.
For this passionate service to the business of preventing injuries and protecting employees Saiosh took the decision to recognise the Chief Inspector’s role. Mr Szana was awarded an Honorary Membership which was handed to him at the Johannesburg OHS Workshop on 19 October 2015.
