Why seek a Health and Safety Qualification?
Nakumatt Downtown, Libra House, Kariobangi Light Industries, Kenya Pipeline Mukuru Slums, Chernobyl, Russia, Union Carbide, Bhopal, India, Mtongwe Ferry, Sachangwan. Countless fatal road accidents and school dormitory fires.
All these disasters that resulted in massive loss of life are just some of the more spectacular examples of safety risk management failures, arising out of gaps in risk awareness and identification.
Every day, we receive reports of grisly accidents on the road, at home and at work. Fires, car crashes and falls. A career cut suddenly short. A promising life tragically ended. A young family left destitute. Sometimes, these happen to someone you know, a family member, a loved one, a colleague, a friend, or even ourselves!

This experience has revealed a need for affordable, flexible and accessible Occupational Health and Safety Training support across the region, which informed the establishment of WorkSafe Capabilities Limited. On this basis, we sought and obtained, appointment as the Africa Sales Agent for SHEilds, UK.
