Safety Staffing

Safety Control

A safety control system is deemed to be safety related if it provides functions which significantly reduce the risk of a hazard, and in combination with other risk reduction measures, reduces the overall risk to a tolerable level, or if it is required to function to maintain or achieve a safe state for the equipment under control (EUC).

These functions are known as the safety function of the system and provides the ability to prevent initiation of a hazard or detect the onset of a hazard, and to take the necessary actions to terminate the hazardous event, achieve a safe state, or mitigate the consequences of a hazard.

We can assist and guide you with setting up a system and providing skilled staff to prevent hazardous or dangerous mistakes from taking place

Crowd Control

There are different kinds of strikes that take place

Work to rule: This isn’t really a strike but a form of industrial action used to put pressure on management and to workers in preparation for a strike. Workers refuse to do any work that isn’t directly covered by their formal job description. 
Go-slow: This is also a mobilising tool and a way to put pressure on management. Workers drag production by working at a far slower rate than normal. 
Work stoppage/demonstration strike: Employees stop working for only a short period to highlight their demands to the management. This could be accompanied by a demonstration with placards. A work stoppage can also be used in the run-up to a larger or longer strike. 
Plant-based strike: This strike is confined to workers at a particular factory or plant. Unless solidarity action is organised, it can be a weak form of strike. It’s unavoidable in small companies where there’s only one plant. To strengthen the strike, other forms of action should be carefully planned. In larger companies with several plants, plant-based strikes can be used to surprise management and protest against unfair practices at the factory. 
Company-based strikes: In larger companies with plants across the country, workers may organise a national company strike. Such a strike could be around a common national demand or a solidarity strike with workers in one plant who are facing difficulties or are being victimised. Company-based strikes take careful planning and coordination but can be very effective in forcing the company to listen to workers’ demands. 
Wildcat strikes: Also known as ‘outlaw’ or ‘quickie‘ strikes, wildcat strikes are “unprocedural” and “illegal”. They’re a quick response by workers to an issue which affects them. The surprise element of a wildcat strike can shock management into accepting workers’ demands. 
Grasshopper strike: This is when workers strike repeatedly over a period of time for short periods. In this way, they’re able to disrupt production to try to force management to agree to their demands. 
Solidarity strike (or secondary strike): This is when workers who aren’t directly affected by an issue take strike action in support of other workers who are on strike. 
Industry-wide strike: An industry-wide strike takes place within an industry or sector of an industry. The structures of the union, which are organised along industrial lines, play a key role here. 
Political stay-away: Stay-aways can involve millions of workers across industries and other sections of the community. It may be called by political organisations and community groups in consultation with trade unions. The political stay-away is called for a short period to put pressure on the government and the bosses to agree to certain demands. 
General strike: This is a very powerful strike involving the majority of workers in all industries. Unlike the political stay-away, the general strike is usually called for a longer or indefinite period. Workers agree to come out and stay on strike until their demands have been met or a settlement has been reached. 
Mass strike: This action is the most powerful form of strike action and can lead to an uprising. The reasons for a mass strike can vary. Historically, it has involved far more spontaneity on the part of the working class and its allies. Unlike the political stay-away and the general strike, a mass strike is seldom “called”. The mass strike “breaks out” when the working class is forced to organise itself to bring about a new order. 
Having a Successful Counter Prevention:

Pre-planning for successful counter strike prevention is operative in South Africa. Not only do we need to consider union labour strikes but also prepare for crime syndicates demanding substantial protection fees and shares of labour and profits.
In preparation companies need to consider the following positions

  • Strike Contingency Planning
  • Strike Replacement Workers
  • Labour Dispute Management Operations
  • Labour Dispute Management Security
  • Business Continuity Planning
  • Labour Dispute Operations
  • Security & Protection
  • Training

Technical Division

We have a technical devision in place as well that can assist with building security systems such as panic buttons, camera systems , electrical fencing and much more. We can also provide all the staff required to guard and maintain that system.
