Looking at the various industries and sectors in South Africa, it is noted that there are numerous accidents and incidents in which employees are injured, often critically. Although these are mostly unforeseen circumstances, there are exceptions where they could have been avoided. The provision of training plays a key role in ensuring that employees are capable of performing certain tasks, along with ensuring that there is Health and Safety compliance throughout an organisation alongside the active management of risks.
The prevention of Health and Safety related incidents and ensuring that employees are provided with a safe and healthy environment is the first step, as it is vital for the success of an organisation or company since its employees are its most valuable asset.
The training of employees plays a significant role in achieving Occupational Health and Safety compliance in an ever-changing world of health and safety regulations and requirements. ISO 45001:2018 was developed by a committee of Occupational Health and Safety experts. This standard considers the International Labour Organization’s ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards and the ILO’s international labour standards and conventions.
The ISO 45001:2018 eLearning courses, presented by WWISE, are for anyone who wishes to implement an effective and robust Occupational Health and Safety Management System. The Implementation course also comes with a set of generic templates which delegates can use in their organisation or company to assist in the development and implementation of an Occupational Health and Safety Management System that conforms to the ISO 45001:2018 standard.
WWISE’s online eLearning platform is convenient, resourceful, and flexible as the modules and videos can be accessed at any time and from any location. Furthermore, eLearning increases knowledge retention because employees and individuals are provided with various types of content and multimedia. Our interactive e-learning provides an engaging and highly effective way of training. By using a combination of videos, text, voice over and interactive tests WWISE can deliver a highly powerful eLearning training tool to your company or to you as an individual.
Health and Safety eLearning courses can assist with the prevention of injuries, diseases and deaths while creating awareness of Occupational Health and Safety requirements.
By attending the WWISE ISO 45001:2018 Implementation eLearning course, an employee or an individual (who is doing it for self-development), will be able to understand Health and Safety Terminologies and understand the difference between a Policy, Processes, Procedure and Systems. They will also be able to apply the standard to the work environment they are familiar with and will become more knowledgeable regarding their legal duties outlined in the Occupational Health and Safety Act and how to support workers’ rights.

The benefits of a well implemented management system enables organisations or industries to conduct customised in-house inspections. Employees will know how to access the required documents, employee training records and Risk Assessments or Method Statements. It also provides a comprehensive understanding of workplace operations by transforming Occupational Health and Safety data into process flows etc. ISO 45001:2018 is intended for use by any organisation, regardless of its size or the nature of its work and can be integrated into other health and safety programmes, such as worker wellness and wellbeing. It also addresses many, if not all, legal requirements in this area.
The WWISE Internal Auditing course is based on the Occupational Health and Safety ISO 45001:2018 Management Systems and its impact on the workplace. To combat the problem, the Internal Auditing course will help organisations reduce this impact by providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions by identifying what the organisation already has in place, and where the gaps are that need improvement. By the end of the course, the employee or delegate will have an in-depth view of the clauses of the standard, and an audit tool kit which will assist in auditing their organisation in accordance to ISO 45001:2018. They will also be able to perform First Party Internal Audits and Second Party Supplier Audits.
The main purpose behind training, and the provision thereof, is to teach employees how a certain task must be done. It also serves to tell employees how a task should not be done, and to provide employees with information pertaining to their tasks.
eLearning is one of the most effective ways through which training material can be delivered seamlessly to many employees simultaneously. It also offers numerous benefits acting as an addition or support to regular classroom training. eLearning does not intend to replace traditional classroom learning but aims to enhance and support certain aspects and improve the overall quality of teaching.
