Mandatory webinar for SA8000 & BSCI auditors and trainees to enhance competence in health & safety
On February 6, 2013, SAI will release the webinar – “Auditing for Fire Safety in the SA8000 and BSCI Systems.” This webinar will be a compulsory requirement for all existing SA8000 and BSCI auditors, as well as trainees in the SA8000 auditor training courses, in order for your credentials to be considered valid, and/or to receive a certificate of course completion. All SA8000 and BSCI auditors will be given until May 1, 2013 to complete this webinar, after which their credentials as a SA8000 auditor will be deemed invalid until this webinar has been completed in full.
To ensure that all SA8000 and BSCI auditors take the course promptly and to eliminate any financial obstacles, access to this webinar will be free of cost up until April 30, 2013. As of May 1, 2013, you will be required to pay a modest fee to access this webinar, to help cover the costs of long-term webinar hosting. We strongly encourage all auditors to take the course as soon as possible in order to avoid having your credentials lapse and paying a fee.
The webinar was developed by SAI’s Director of Field Services Doug DeRuisseau and SAI Lead Trainer and Fire Safety Expert Dundar Sahin to enhance the skills and knowledge of SA8000 and BSCI auditors and to provide guidance on how to audit against the occupational health and safety requirement of the SA8000 Standard and BSCI Code. The webinar will cover the following material:
- Fire prevention as part of SA8000 and BSCI health and safety requirements
- Fire evacuation planning as part of SA8000 and BSCI requirements
- Management systems required for fire prevention and evacuation to meet SA8000 and BSCI performance criteria
- Identifying high-risk situations
The webinar will be accessible on February 6, 2013 at www.sa-intl.org/SA8000firesafety. For more information, please read the FAQs below.
