DRILL SITE SAFETY (SA LAW) CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
About this certificate program
The aim of this certificate is to improve the candidate's level of understanding of health and safety issues so that the candidate can more effectively assist in the management of safety aspects on an operational drill site.
It is not possible to identify and mitigate risk in a drilling operation if one does not have at least a fundamental understanding of the processes involved in drilling and so this certificate includes the Drilling Fundamentals and Introduction to Drilling Methods courses. The Fundamentals of Risk Assessment course prepares candidates to conduct a basic issue-based risk assessment while the Fundamentals of Hazard Identification course will equip candidates with an understanding of the major sources of hazards on a drill site and therefore improve their ability to identify hazards on a drill site.
The Legal Aspects of Exploration Drilling (SA Law) course covers aspects of South African law applicable to drilling operations and so is intended for people working on projects where South African law is applicable. Candidates working outside of South Africa should register for the Drill Site Safety Certificate which does not include the course on South African law.
This certificate is intended for people working in countries where South African law IS applicable.
Who should register?
This certificate program is designed for people involved in supervising and managing any aspect of a drilling project where South African law is applicable. Geologists, geological technicians, safety managers, safety officers, supervisors, foremen, contracts managers and engineers will derive benefit from the program.
This certificate program is made up of five courses:
- Drilling Fundamentals
- Introduction to Drilling Methods
- Fundamentals of Risk Assessment
- Fundamentals of Hazard Identification
- Legal Aspects of Exploration Drilling (SA Law)
Before you register...
This certificate program requires that candidates conduct hazard identification and risk assessments on an active drilling operation. Candidates who have access to an active drilling operation may register for the "assessed" option but candidates who do not have access to an active drilling operation should register for the "un-assessed" option of this certificate.
Although our online learning programs allow candidates to work at their own pace, it is important that candidates maintain a good work rate and so time limits are set within which courses must be completed. Generally 3 - 4 weeks are allowed per course and so this certificate should be completed within 4 to 5 months. A timetable of course completion dates will be made available to the candidate on registration.
The cost of this certificate program is R 7 600,00 per person, excluding VAT.
Please refer to the schedule for the monthly intake dates. Should you wish to register for this certificate program, please complete the registration form for online learning below.
This certificate program is also offered on a 2-day contact basis. Candidates who register for the contact program have the option to register to complete the assessments and so qualify to be awarded the Certificate of Completion. Candidates who attend the 2-day program but do not complete the assessments will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
We are able to offer this certificate on a contact basis for in-house training. Please contact Colin at firstname.lastname@example.org or Erin at email@example.com to discuss your requirements.
