What CPUT Short Course students say...

I met beautiful people, learn about other cultures. Learning English at CPUT was such a great experience that I will never ever forget. Those who want to learn English in Cape while having fun, CPUT is here for you. I am sure you will not regret it at all.

Oria Parcia

Oria Parcia from Gabon

I chose the short course at CPUT, because I am a mom of a two year old. Doing a correspondance course just wouldn’t work for me. CPUT offers evening classes, which enabled me to attend classes for 6 months. I absolutely enjoyed attending the classes, I also learnt a lot and made friends within the similar fields and with similar interest. Thank you CPUT and the SCM team.

Course overview

The number of workers around the world who die annually as a result of occupational accidents or diseases. International Labour Organization (2020).

The year-on-year decrease in the number of fatalities recorded in South Africa’s mining industry from 2018 to 2019. South African Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (Oct, 2020).

Duration: 10 weeks (excluding orientation)

In South Africa, the Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1993 requires local businesses with more than 20 employees to have adequate health and safety measures in place. Unfortunately, many companies lack a clear understanding of their legal obligations or how to establish effective health and safety management systems in the workplace. As a result, the role of occupational health and safety (OHS) officers is essential to ensure compliance and promote a safe working environment for employees.

The University of Cape Town (UCT) offers an online short course in Occupational Health and Safety to provide professionals with the necessary skills and knowledge to meet legal requirements and create a productive work environment. Through this course, students will learn how to identify potential hazards, conduct risk assessments, manage workplace stressors, compile investigative reports, and oversee OHS training within their organisation. Upon completion, students will have acquired valuable competencies that can be applied to a wide range of corporate and industrial settings, and will be awarded a certificate attesting to their proficiency in occupational health and safety.

Is this course for you?

This online course offers a valuable opportunity for individuals seeking to advance their career prospects in the occupational health and safety (OHS) field. The programme caters to professionals new to the industry and those who wish to enhance their existing qualifications. This Saiosh-accredited course is also highly recommended for business leaders who want to prioritise employee safety and satisfaction and ensure compliance with regulations. With a 10-week duration, the online learning approach provides a structured yet flexible learning environment that allows students to balance their work and personal commitments. Additionally, the course offers comprehensive tutor support throughout to ensure students' success. By completing this course, individuals can improve their knowledge and skills, and expand their career opportunities in the OHS sector.

Colin Barker

Compliance Manager

As a complete novice to occupational health and safety (OHS) and online learning, I found the content to be very informative and interesting. The course is logical, well-planned, and flows easily from one module to the next. Now that I have completed this course, I feel that I have a good understanding of OHS and have been enabled to go forward with this newly acquired knowledge. Networking with other students was extremely beneficial as it gave me the opportunity to experience other people's challenges and expertise.

Health and Safety at the Faculty of Health Sciences

Our vision is to achieve Zero Harm , a healthy and productive workforce & student life through the effective management of occupational health risks in all our managed campuses. 

Zero Harm : It’s an idea that’s at the foundation of our approach to occupational health and safety. We believe that none of our people should be injured or contract any form of illness while at work, studying or visiting.

We believe our people are our key asset and we do not accept that it is necessary for people to be made ill or injured whilst working for us, studying or visiting the Faculty of Health Sciences. All employees and students should be able to return home fit and well at the end of each day and/or academic period.

Doing everything to keep you safe

Every workplace will always carry some kind of risk, but we’re working towards a future where that never means serious illness, injury or loss of life. We know what the biggest risks are and we’re putting improved rules and standards in place to ensure effective management and control.

Our faculty will strive to increase and improve reporting of and learning from high potential incidents (HPIs) as a preventative tool to improve health and safety performance. 

Building Healthy Lives

We need our students and employees to be healthy, happy, engaged and fulfilled during their period of study, work and in life. It makes us safer, more productive and a stronger force for good in the environment where we operate.

We tackle the threats to health and wellbeing wherever we find them, with separate programmes for checking the health of our people, for creating a healthier working environment and for encouraging healthy lifestyles.

Ensuring Proper Controls at our Biosafety Facilities

  • All Biosafety Laboratory users are mandated to use proper facilities for different Biosafety levels.
  • only persons who have received adequate training for working under those laboratory conditions will be authorised to enter these areas.

Accident and Illness Reporting

Report all occupational injuries or illnesses (including exposures to hazardous materials and work-related repetitive stress injuries) within 24 hours of the occurrence. 

Health and Safety representatives are responsible for ensuring that all occupational injuries and illnesses are reported, and corrective actions are documented. 

Occupational health nurses and Occupational Health and Safety Manager review all accident and illness reports and corrective actions and conduct further investigation and follow-up as necessary. All accidents and incident reports are then reviewed at the Health and Safety Committee meetings.

What is Expected of Staff and Students During Emergencies?

  • Follow evacuation procedures and proceed to emergency assembly points as soon as possible. Request emergency assistance if needed. Assist persons who are injured, have disabilities, or who have other special needs.
  • Follow the instructions of evacuation marshals and any others who have designated authority and responsibilities during an emergency.
  • Follow procedures to assist co-workers and students with protection and personal safety; provide, or obtain, emergency assistance as needed.
