Training on the Move (ToM)

In cases where the contractor finds it challenging to provide effective training due to a lack of resources and facilities, TOM shall assist with site specific induction training and OHS related toolbox talks.

The TOM initiative provides both site induction and toolbox training to all MBA North Members and can be deployed to any site or premises.

The MBA North Members, The Federated Employers’ Mutual Assurance Company (FEM) Policy Holders and Contractors are introduced to audio and visual equipment which will contribute to effective transfer of vital OHS information.

TOM provides interactive site induction training to construction workers within Gauteng, Mpumalanga, North-West and Limpopo Provinces in South Africa (SA).

Site audits & 5 star grading

Employers have a legal duty and a moral obligation to ensure their workplaces are maintained in a safe state and without risk to health and safety. Health and safety audits are necessary to monitor operations against established legal compliance. The MBA North CHS team provide an independent view bench-marking against legal compliance and best practice.

Risk assessments

Risks assessments are required to comply with Construction Regulations and identify all risks and hazards associated with the employer’s scope of work which will allow the employer to either eliminate or reduce the likelihood of an incident occurring.  Our team is able to provide support for developing practical project and task specific risk assessments.

We compile site-specific Health & Safety Files in accordance with the CHS Act and Client Safety Specifications.

Incident investigation

An incident that results in an employee injury, property damage, a fire, or spill warrants an investigation. The CHS team provide capable support to identity root causes, practical corrective actions and comply with legislated reporting requirements.
