Driver passionate about safety

19 Feb,2017Profiles

Many of our Working On Fire participants strive to become the best they can be. Thabiso Ditibane is one of our participants who has not only managed to be promoted as a WOF driver but is also doing his utmost to further his studies.

Funded by his earnings, Ditibane completed his Occupational Health and Safety Management (OH S) Diploma at Oxbridge Academy.

“I chose this course because I care about safety in the workplace. I like to live in an environment where I know people are safe and studying this course has helped me to be more alert,” says Ditibane.

After completing his OHS Diploma Ditibane enrolled for the Safety Management Diploma course as he had started as a SHE representative at the base and fell in love with the health and safety field.

Ditibane joined the WOF Programme in April 2013 and he wants to see himself one day in the role of Safety Officer.

“Joining the WOF Programme was the best decision I ever made as it has helped me pay for my studies and support my child. I would like to encourage my fellow colleagues to set their own goals in life and try by all means to develop themselves,” he says.
