The Department of Labour’s Construction, Explosives and Major Hazard and Installation (MHI) Directorate within the Inspection and Enforcement Services (IES) will be conducting a series of national training workshops on the administration of MHI Regulations.

The training seeks to provide a framework on the use of exercises and case studies to develop procedure for dealing with invasions around MHI pipelines.

The training content will cover: Sasol Satellite Operations; challenges; local authority approvals; provision of safe and healthy operations; and dealing with unauthorised works around pipelines.

The first training starts from 19-20 March 2019 at Umhlanga Garden Court in KwaZulu-Natal. The training will start from 08:30am – 15:00. It will be conducted by Sasol and Departmental officials.

Some of the Departmental stakeholders in the pipeline sector includes: Sasol Satellite Operations, Approved Inspection Authority (AIA), relevant local authority, Transnet and Rand Water.

The rest of the training programme will be held as follows:
• Mpumalanga (Emalahleni) – 03-04 April 2019
