The Southern AFRICAN INSTITUTE FOR OCCUPATIONAL HYGIENE (SAIOH)

SAIOH has approximately 900 members and an annual budget of about a million rand which is applied to branch and head office incidentals.  SAIOH is dependent on sponsorship and membership fees to sustain itself and provide a service to members. These services include but are not limited to:
  • The OHSA Journal and Safety First Magazine
  • SAIOH Events and OH-related Matters

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING YOUR SAIOH PERSONAL LEARNING PORTFOLIO 

The SAIOH Council and Professional Certification Committee (PCC) would like to remind all members that the keeping of a Personal Learning Portfolio (PLP) becomes mandatory from the end of 2017.

The recent Continued Professional Development (CPD) audit and problems associated with completing this successfully identified the need for a more stringent method for members to keep proof relating to career development and associated activities for which our members claim CPD points.

Whilst this may seem to be another time-consuming activity, members who have actually started using this process confirm that in the long term the PLP saves time and is a strong evidential document to support their CV and job applications as well as the CPD process. Approved Inspection Authorities (AIAs) that have implemented this for their staff confirm it is a good way to keep evidence of training and development of their staff and supports the SANS 17020 accreditation system.

Please read the SAIOH guide to your PLP available on the SAIOH website to understand the concept and the requirements.

All applications, requests for upgrade and CPD audits going forward will request copies of your PLP as part of the process.
