RSS bars Saiosh endorsed CPD events will no longer be publishing conferences and events such as the A-OHS Expo if accredited for CPD points by the SA Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (Saiosh).

This decision has been taken after a developmental value evaluation was done on attending these expos and conferences it is was found to have failed adding value to the knowledge and skills of the OHS practitioners. Attending an expo walking among the hundreds of stalls and pretending to show an interest in the services or products on display does not constitute “professional development”.

Event organisers who which to list their expo’s and conferences will in future  have to provide evidence that professional development such as pre-conference master-classes or discussion group sessions etc. have been accredited by the relevant statutory councils like HPCSA, ECSA or the SACPMP before a free listing will be entertained.
