If OH&S training is NOT aligned to the organization's Risk Profile, then SETA "Accreditation" renders that training non-specific, and NOT Risk Specific.

It stands to reason that non-specific OH&S training is in all likelihood invalid or even illegal.

Generic "One-size fits all" OH&S training exposes Employers and CEOs to a non-validity claim and Employees and OH&S Reps to irrelevant material.

Customisation to the organization's existing Risks Profile prior to Accreditation is the only way to go. It also exposes the Service Provider to non-compliance with the Consumer Protection Act.

Furthermore H&S Rep training that has not been "agreed upon" by the H&S Reps is in all probability also invalid. Content, methodology and competency of the facilitator or service provider are some of the elements that should to be agreed upon prior to the training taking place,

Finally SETA Accredited First Aid Training that has not been Approved by the Dept of Labour is clearly illegal. GAR 3 is clear on that. 

Food for thought.
