Who should undertake ITOL CSP-OSH certification?

ITOL’s CSP-OSH Certification is personal upgrade to a professional what a gold medal is to an athlete. Ever thought about how some people stay relevant and on high demand at a time when getting a job or keeping one is far-fetched?

The answer is not difficult!

For decades, highly successful individuals have understood that the step to significance lies in the continuous upgrading of one’s intellectual capacity. Professional training has been proven over the years to be the most effective tool for career success and personal development. Talk about experience and exposure you talk about qualitative professional training.

Every year over 3 million people suffer from different type of illness or injury that can be directly related to their work environment. Tragically, findings reveal that an estimated 20 persons are killed in preventable accidents while carrying out their day to day jobs – possible in breach of their human rights.

As an employee, job seeker or self-employed, you have a duty to protect yourself and those working alongside with you, as well as report hazards and defects observed in the workplace.

As an employer you have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of your work force. The Health and safety at work Act of 1974 mandates employers of labour to provide a duty of care for employees and all visitors to their work premises.

Successful candidates of this program stand a 95% chance of being selected for employment or promotion.
