3 min read

JC Auditors (JCA), a leader in international certification services, is taking a giant leap forward with a visionary initiative aimed at redefining support for its clients within the road transport sector.

Recognising the extraordinary pressures confronting the industry, including surging fuel costs and operational complexities in South Africa, JCA is leading the way in assisting companies reduce training spend while still building safety capabilities into the workforce. Commencing this month, the company is hosting a series of complimentary safety-related training programmes for its clients.

JC Auditors is at the forefront of the Road Transport Management System (RTMS) certification, conducting more than 10 000 audits over the last 15 years. The team’s unwavering passion for road safety improvements has played a pivotal role in the RTMS achieving remarkable safety and efficiency enhancements, benefiting transport businesses across the southern African region.

Through its considerable expertise and experience, JC Auditors also provides guidance to major national blue-chip companies, helping them promote the RTMS to enhance safety and efficiency within their supply chains.

The road transport sector has often grappled with inadequate safety measures and systems, resulting in incidents and unsafe practices that not only endanger lives but also burden transporters with avoidable costs. JCA’s dedication to addressing these issues head-on has led the company to launch complimentary virtual training courses, designed to empower and build the capacity of industry professionals.

The JCA team has been greatly encouraged by commendations from industry leaders. “The RTG management team found the legal liability training delivered by JC Auditors to be exceptional,” states Johan Theron, group SHEQ manager at Reinhardt Transport Group. JCA is proud to count all the leading road transport companies in South Africa as loyal clients.

In addition to the logistics sector, the team also provide services to many of South Africa’s leading brands such as Coca-Cola South Africa, Nestle SA, Sasol, Air Products, Engen, Astron Energy, SAPPI, Exxaro, Pernod Ricard, South 32, Goscor and Premier.

“The JCA team has been exceptional. They have been incredibly supportive in our efforts to promote safety in our operations,” says Bradley Shunmugam, fleet risk manager at Coca-Cola Beverages South Africa.

The following Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Training Courses will be available at no cost to all JCA clients throughout 2024:

  • Health and Safety Representative Training – empowering individuals to champion safety within their organisations.
  • Accident and Incident Investigation – equipping professionals with the skills to proactively address and investigate safety incidents.
  • Safety Awareness for Employees – enhancing the awareness of safety practices among all employees, fostering a culture of safety.
  • OHS Act for Managers – ensuring management is well-versed in legal and regulatory requirements for OHS.
  • OHS Legal Liability – educating professionals about the legal responsibilities and liabilities associated with OHS.

The above courses are in addition to its long-standing RTMS specific courses that have been exceptionally well received over the last 15 years. The recently launched AARTO (Demerit Points) course has already proven to be a great resource to the sector in preparation for the regulations and, more importantly, to promote a safer driving culture in the country.

“At JC Auditors, we are committed to building a safer and more sustainable road transport sector,” explains Oliver Naidoo, JCA’s managing director. “Our passion for road safety improvements, demonstrated through our RTMS certification efforts, has led us to introduce these complimentary training courses. We hope to contribute to a future where safety is firmly embedded in the drive to business growth and sustainability.”
