Who we are

WorkSafe Africa was formed after a group of professional Environmental Health and Safety Engineers decided to distance themselves from the South African Institute of Occupational Safety and Health.

The result was the formation of a voluntary association of practitioners who holds qualifications issued by Education Institutions registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training.

WorkSafe Africa supports the general principal that Safer Workplaces results in Safer People.

WorkSafe Africa does not under any circumstances support the notion that humans must adapt to the workplace, but that the workplace must be designed with the health and safety of humans and the environment in mind.
