Saiosh – leading professional health and safety body
Hundreds of delegates visited the Saiosh exhibition stand during Noshcon 2015 to find out more about the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) Professional Health and Safety Registration process and the professional designations offered by Saiosh.
The South African Institute of Occupational Safety and Healthâ€™s (Saioshâ€™s) stand was abuzz with activity. Delegates took the opportunity to take part in the Saiosh Facebook â€œselfieâ€? competition and to stand a chance to win a 32-inch LED TV.
Members also checked their status and were shown how to update their profiles, as well as the easy uploading process of their continued professional development (CPD) credits.
