Covid-19: Occupational Health And Safety Protocol In PST Training

Due to the OHS hazard that Covid-19 virus presents, PST Training are implementing several processes that will change the way we operate during the time ahead.

PST will be applying a Risk Adjusted Strategy in addition to the focused Occupational Health and Safety before the Covid–19 virus, and implement a Risk Adjusted Framework which will be detailed below for the safety of everyone during the lockdown phases and be appropriately adapted as the levels are progressively relaxed.

These are in aligned to the legal requirements and as per accredited course taken by the owner and another staff member to ensure all protocols are understood and implemented by S.A. Labour Guide.

The health and safety of all coming to PST Training are paramount and the legal requirements for this Biological Hazard – Level 3 are strict and therefore mandatory for all who enter the premises.
