REDUCING RISK TO INCREASE YOUR COMPANY'S PROFITS

As an employer, you are responsible for the safety of employees in your workplace. 

The Skills Development Act, Basic Conditions of Employment Act and Occupational Health and Safety Act stipulate this.

 Providing your employees with focused transport training offers the following benefits:

  • It significantly reduces the possibility of catastrophic liabilities and financial risks.
  • It creates the platform for substantial savings in accident and repair costs, the costs of downtime, and running insurance costs. 

Learning Exchange is not interested in making you pay for something you do not need, so we adopt a flexible 'training partner' approach in order to give you a cost-effective solution: courses and training that are customised to your specific requirements.
