Occupational Health and Safety Training
In today's tough economic climate, many areas of a company's or an
individual's budget is squeezed, with cut-backs meaning funding for
various items are cut back or eliminated completely.
One of the
areas in which spending is often reduced is the budget available for
health and safety courses. It is either sacrificed completely, or
potential buyers will place so much emphasis on finding the cheapest
price that they do not look into other aspects, such as if the safety
training provider is actually accredited by the relevant awarding body
to offer their particular qualifications. Also overlooked is the quality
of the course, the material and the knowledge of the facilitator and
company offering that course.
Even if the training provider is
accredited, there may still be reasons as to why they are offering
safety courses at a low price. A cheaper course selling price may be
achieved by drastically cutting back on expenses such as the provision
and or quality of course study books, handouts and other materials. All
of this will lead to a poorer learning experience and make it less
likely that course attendees will retain enough knowledge to positively
influence your business.
Along with being a legal requirement,
health and safety is important for reducing lost working days with staff
being absent through sickness or injury, not to mention reducing the
chances of expensive legal action if you are sued or face criminal
charges because of inadequate safety provisions. Work stoppages due to
incidents and the resulting time lost on incident investigations, also
impact the bottom line performance of your business and effective,
quality based training courses with an emphasis on the end result, not
on cost, saves companies huge amounts of money over an extended period.
not only should spending be maintained as far as possible, it is also
worth avoiding the temptation to find the cheapest training and go with
that based solely on price, as a little extra spending may give you a
much better return in the future.

Training can produce positive results when based on clearly defined needs. GSRC Management provides planned programs designed to improve performances at the individual, group and/or organisational levels.
Training can produce positive results when based on clearly defined needs specific to the workplace, and delivered with an understanding of those needs and the way in which people learn. This is, of course, true for safety and health training as well. The principles of safety and health training are no different from those which apply to any form of industrial training. Indeed, a good case can be made for the integration of skill training along with safety training (wherever) possible. Safety and health training which fails to produce positive results because it is not based on sound analysis is, at best, a waste of time and money, and at worst, such training may result in false confidence, thus increasing the risk of accidents.
GSRC Management provides planned programs designed to improve performances at the individual, group and/or organisational levels. An improved performance, in return, implies that there have been measurable changes in knowledge, skills, attitudes, and/or behaviour.
At GSRC: education, training and development activities address three primary aspects of learning:
By Using our innovative training approach your organization will:
Enjoy cost effective and supportive training.
Reduce required, off-site training time by up to 80%.
Increase productivity and reduce losses.
Empower Employees and initiate accountability / responsibility awareness.
Enjoy customized training programs and feedback.
In the climate of increasing competition and cost control, there is simply no room for people who cannot have a significant impact on an organisation's productivity and profitability.
Employees must get to know the basics of cost, quality, profits, losses and customer satisfaction by being exposed to more than a narrowly defined job. Therefore we integrate these aspects into one program, which can be adjusted to the level of training.
This type of training takes place at several venues countrywide. On these training courses learners from several types of industries and backgrounds attend a central venue for the course. GSRC supply's all refreshments and lunches. The learners are only responsible for their own traveling and accommodation requirements.
Schedules / year planners / seminar dates and news are forwarded to registered clients and individuals on a regular basis.
A feedback report on class performance and individual performance are forwarded to the client on all courses with a duration of more than one day. This allows the client to identify areas of improvement and focused budget allocations for training needs.
TRAINING NEEDS ANALYSIS
If you don't have a limitless safety budget, cost effective training is essential.
Before creating and writing down your training plan, you should carefully analyze the various aspects of safety and personnel needs in your organisation. This analysis will help in underscoring the special needs of your training, which in turn will determine your training contents and match it more closely to your training objectives. A careful identification and analysis of your needs, therefore, is crucial to your success in developing reliable training objectives and contents.
Several of our courses are available for in-house training (Terms and conditions apply). This means that the client can purchase a training license and facilitate the course with their own resources. GSRC Management provides manuals and certificates for this training. Although cost effective, the facilitator must have experience in the filed and GSRC Management must issue a license.
