Title Health, Safety and Enviro-Legal Compliance
Health, Safety & Enviro-Legal Compliance

In response to growing demands placed upon the industry we have developed a customised training offering. It combines the consideration of basic health and safety commitments with a wider range of responsibilities legislated under several relevant acts including the National Environmental Management Act [NEMA].
This encompasses air and water pollution amongst other issues. Legal compliance is a crucial matter that managers have to deal with and personnel have to understand. There is a veritable mine field of legislation. Knowing which applies, who to report to, where and how, is a challenge. Click here to learn more about this course.

Effluent Management & Compliance

Effluent Treatment remains a subject that all metal finishers rate as a concern. Increasing surveillance by authorities along with steep fines for transgressors have made it imperative that companies dedicate more attention to the subject.

This training is offered every year and will be offered again during 2018. 
To date, there have not been many opportunities for persons entering the anodising industry to gain a broader understanding of the technical and other issues via formal course offerings, and this initiative seeks to address that. It must be true to say that new entrants are joining anodising companies every year, some with no experience or background knowledge at all.
This course is defnitely being offered during 2018.
These seminars address a wide range of issues related to effluent treatment and resource conservation, putting all the right people together in the right place at the right time. Click here for further information .....
