Sustainable Environment, Health, & Safety IntervEntions for Local Construction & Mining InDustry

SHIELD was envisioned to help enhance the local capacity in South Africa’s construction and mining industry in the areas of environment, health and safety (EHS).

For this DEG–financed initiative, ASSIST and TUV Rheinland developed an education and training program, focusing on the proven and recognized international standards, ISO 14001 for the environment and OHSAS 18001, for health and safety. The training program includes a basic course specially developed for all mining and construction workers, an intermediate course for all supervisory-level members in the industry, and an advanced course for all managers in the industry, local chambers and associations and government agencies.
