About Hesscon






Hesscon – it’s all about safety

Hesscon (Pty) Ltd
was established in 2008 in Durban with Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) consulting as its core focus. Since then, we have expanded our services to offer training – including full qualifications for Occupational Health & Safety Practioners and specialised sectors such as Construction Health & Safety, Covid 19 Awareness Training and various SETA accredited training courses, computer skills and wellness courses.

These services are available country wide through our agents in Cape Town, Midrand, Bloemfontein, Port Elizabeth, East London, George and Nelspruit. Our ultimate goal is to offer national coverage with outlets in every province.

Health & Safety Compliance
We provide a full safety solution that begins with assessment audits, followed by safety system implementation and ongoing maintenance. Our solutions are tailor made to specific business requirements and budgets, to provide a win/win safety solution for our customers.

We provide training of a high standard, relevant to our clients’ specific requirements. Various methodologies are used to ensure that learners are able to implement what was learned in the classroom and put it into practice in the workplace to ensure compliance to the OHS Act 85 of 1993.
