DIPLOMA IN SAFETY AND SECURITY MANAGEMENT FROM 15TH JULY 2020 TO 15TH JANUARY 2021

Africa Institute for Project Management Studies (AIPMS) in partnership with Strategia Netherlands are pleased to announce a Diploma in Safety and Security Management. The course is offered through Distance Learning.

Course overview

Creating a safe work environment requires careful planning and organizational commitment. Policies must be implemented; Assessments are needed to determine the level of risk and the appropriate security strategy. Fundamental safety and security preparations and procedures must be put in place to help prevent incidents or minimize the effect of those that do occur and guidelines for personal safety and security are needed to provide a framework for individual action and response and to increase confidence and awareness. Safety and health principles are universal, but how much action is needed will depend on the size of the organisation, the hazards presented by its activities, the physical characteristics of the organisation, products or services, and the adequacy of its existing arrangements.

This diploma course will equip you with necessary skills to understand and be able to fully observe security and safety management.
