Cobus' introduction into the field of health and safety came about some 16 years ago when working in Beeshoek in the Northern Cape as a safety representative. Realising that he was hooked, he actively pursued this field through training opportunities afforded to him by his then employer - a small construction company - who appointed him as safety officer in 2008.
He spent much of the following six years expanding his knowledge and experience in mechanical engineering projects, civil engineering projects, FMCG, manufacturing and chrome benefication.
In 2014, Cobus made the transition to provide integrated SHEQ services to large corporate companies in both the manufacturing and civil engineering industry. Soon thereafter, in 2015, he achieved a personal goal through his appointment as a safety manager on a large construction project in the Northern Cape. A challenging project consisting of building, housing, civils and electrical projects as separate sub-projects, and with a workforce of no less than 1,500 at any given stage. As his time at this project concluded, Cobus returned to providing consulting services in the area of safety, health, environment, risk and quality. This period provided Cobus with experience in auditing state entities.
Cobus' career has taken him as far afield as Zimbabwe and Namibia, and has ensured all round experience in all aspects of health and safety, from the shop floor to top management, as well as project phases from implementation to completion.
Team SAFCEC welcomes Cobus into the SAFCEC advisory services fold. We are certain that he will add value to all our members, and wish him well going forward.
Cobus is based at the SAFCEC National Office in Bedfordview, Johannesburg and can be contacted telephonically on +2711 409 0900, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
