    Across Africa, various Acts, Regulations, Standards and Bylaws dictate that every event appoints a competent person to act as an event safety officer to ensure the safety of attendees. Severe penalties also apply if an event safety officer is not appointed, or the appointed person is deemed incompetent based on a review of their qualifications and work experience.

    This six-week online course is designed to provide information and insight into the role and responsibilities of an event safety officer. Presented as a series of workshops led by subject matter experts, this course provides the information you need to meet your legal requirements and create a safe event. By using real-life examples, you'll know how to instantly identify hazards that could lead to harm, and create event safety documents that include organisational details, crowd management plans and emergency procedures.

    The course cost includes SACIA membership and access to the qualifying exam for the Event Safety Practitioner designation (SAQA ID 1115)

    The course is validated to provide 24 CPD credits that can be used to maintain a SACIA professional designation, and 5 CPD points that can be used to maintain a SAIOSH professional designation.
