What are the accreditation and registration requirements for safety and occupational health training?

By sylviahammond, 19 May, 2015

To all skills-universe members knowledgeable about accreditation processes - please assist.  

Before the implementation of DHET, the Department of Labour registered/accredited training service providers.  As I recall this was for the safety type training, equipment, fire-fighting, and possibly related occupational health issues of chemical inhalation and so on.

Once again I have been asked for clarification.  

Please will you assist me to respond to the following questions:

  • does DoL still accredit these types of programmes?
  • is it accreditation - as in the skills development manner - or is it registration?
  • what is the purpose of the exercise - is it credit-bearing and registered on the NLRD?
  • what legislation/policy documents cover this - please give references if possible?
  • what section of DoL handles this?
  • do you have contact details: names/job titles and contact numbers with extensions, and email addresses?
  • does the training company still have to be accredited by the QCTO/SETA ETQA?

All information will be helpful and I've posted this in the Knowledge Area so that we can keep the information for future referral.

Thank you.
