EXECUTIVES AND MANAGERS COURSE IN OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH
The safety of a worker is an international human right which places direct
responsibility on employers to ensure that it is adequately provided for in a company,
institution or organisation. It is incumbent upon employers to ensure that their safety
policy is consistent with their workers and stakeholder expectations at local and
international level and that occupational safety and health practices enhance the
welfare of staff, productivity and goodwill from clients.
The use of green technology and assurance of sustainable development is attracting
a lot of interest from international stakeholders concerned not only with productivity
but the effects of industrial activity both within the work environment, local and
globally. As much as appropriate Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) practices
can be implemented with a bottom up approach, the top down approach has a
greater part in developing policy, enforcing it and facilitating its implementation, thus
providing leadership from the front and ensuring all OSH requirements are met.
This course has a focus on the significance of OSH and the role of executives and
managers in policy development and its implementation for their organizations in the
Construction Industry. OSH is envisaged to be a standard regulatory requirement for
the construction industry on consultants, contractors, government institutions and
private companies.
Programme Objectives
The objective of the course is to engage executives and managers in the design and
implementation of OSH policy based on the significance of OSH in the construction
industry, safety protocols and relevant stakeholders.
Programme Content
An overview of OSH and its significance in the construction industry. Local and
International Safety protocols and OSH stakeholders. OSH policy development and
implementation.
Target Group
Executives, managers and administrators of companies, institutions and government
departments in the construction industry; consultants, contractors and engineers,
Senior Managers, Union Leaders, Directors

BASIC LAND SURVEYING COURSE
Zambia has consistently continued registering increased growth in the
construction industry. Due to a rise in construction activities, there has been
increased utilization of land that was previously unsurveyed for construction
purposes which has led to shortage of trained and skilled personnel in the
industry. The shortage of trained construction surveying personnel is further
worsened due to the phasing out of surveying training programmes at both
certificate and diploma levels in colleges and trades schools.
It is against this background that the Skills Award in Basic Land Surveying
Training
Programme has been developed to meet the increased demand for
qualified construction land surveying personnel.
