Amelda Van Der Merwe earns top honours in health and safety diploma programme

Amelda Van Der Merwe

Please join us in congratulating Amelda van der Merwe, Health and Safety Manager at G4S South Africa. Amelda achieved the highest overall score in the Level 6 International Diploma for Occupational Health and Safety Management Professionals offered by the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH).

The NEBOSH programme stands as a pinnacle in the realm of professional qualifications for health and safety practitioners. It equips learners with both theoretical insights and practical skills crucial for navigating the intricate landscape of health and safety in today's workplace.

Amelda's accomplishment demonstrates our values being lived, where our "CARING culture puts people and SAFETY first." Professionals of her calibre significantly reinforce this ethos while curbing costs by proactively preventing accidents and safeguarding the well-being of our employees.

“Her diligence in incident investigations supporting the South Africa business to improve how we operate typifies this dedication as it often entails many hours of unseen work to ensure reviews are efficient. Additionally, Amelda helped develop enhanced training that had the right content and was delivered in an engaging way to branch managers. This effort ensured that branch managers understand their role in helping the business achieve zero harm.”

Amelda's achievement is not only in her passing of the exam, a commendable feat in itself amidst her demanding responsibilities, but also in her standout score. This accomplishment speaks volumes about her capabilities and underscores the immense effort, diligence and unwavering commitment she has invested.

Amelda has made exceptional contributions that extend beyond her defined role. There are two areas that really stand out for me that in some ways make this accolade no surprise at all.
