About the workshop


SEIFSA now offers companies the opportunity to have key employees at your company trained and equipped to understand which of the 39 Technical Schedules will be applicable to your operations, normally two would be applicable.

At the end of the workshop the participants will be given a practical exercise, where they will grade various technical/machining activities. This will ensure that the contents of the workshop have been understood and can be applied at the company.

The presentation process and content will be subject to continuous change, adjustment and improvement as the company’s operations adjust over time. The training should therefore be envisioned as an on-going process.

The workshop will cover

  • A telephonic assessment of the company’s operations including machinery a few days before the workshop
  • A brief introduction of legislation concerning Bargaining Councils and collective bargaining
  • The Metal industry, the Main Agreement and the jurisdiction/scope of application of both in terms of technical operations.
  • SEIFSA and its operations, functions and purpose
  • The Metal Industries Collective Agreements, including the Main Agreement.
  • An overview of the Technical Schedules, G, M, D, E and F
  • A detailed overview and application of your Technical Schedules applicable to your company, including examining of company specific machinery and operations and the grading there of.
  • A practical application of the acquired knowledge in the afternoon after the workshop. This will be done in your factory, where machinery and operations will be assessed and graded.
