BBBEE Score Cards
Companies that wish to do business with government entities must obtain a BBBEE score. The current amendment on the BBBEE scoring system requires a company to attain 25 points for skills development. If the company does not score at least 40% of the 20 points they will automatically see drop on their BBBEE Level. The other 5 points are regarded as bonus points. Learnerships and soft skills training programmes there for play a key role in improving the BBBEE Score of the entity.
A prerequisite for attaining an points on the BEE Scorecard one needs to submit the following documents:
- Workplace Skills Plan (WSP),
- Pivotal Plan
- Annual Training Report (ATR) prior to the deadline in April each year.
The entity can only attain the points if the mentioned documents have been submitted.

Compliance Audits & Integrated Management Systems
CIOSM performs Safety audits at various entities to satisfy the organisational requirements, below are some of the key reasons for performing safety audits:
Legislative Requirements – A safety audit can help ensure that standards set by legislative entities are met by an organisation.
Safety Concerns – Keeping employees and the workplace safe is ethically very important and investigating post accidents and incidents and the likelihood of them happening again.
If a company fails to meet the requirements set in an audit, there are often penalties, and can often result in a facility being recommended to stop its operations until the set standards are met.
A subsequent process to the compliance audit process is the development of systems that enable entities to effectively implement safe work practices with easy, in so doing CIOSM is in the business of developing integrated management systems that makes it easy to manage the health and safety affairs of a business.

Learnership Tax Rebates
Promoting youth development and providing youth services is one area business are charged with in an effort to relieve the social imbalances and contributing to job creation. Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) legislation place more emphasis on skills development and on business owners to broaden the impact of their skills development. Business owners play a big role in creating employment opportunities for people aged 15-34 and one key area to which business can contribute to the skills development of the economy is through offering accredited trainings in the form of learnerships.
A learnership is a work-based approach to learning and gaining qualifications that is offered for a minimum of 12 months by the employer. Government recognises that business are profit driven and can not sorely contribute to job creation and skills development for philanthropic purposes, this has there for lead to the development of financial incentive for institutions contributing to skills development. Businesses can therefore claim Skills Development points for learnerships on their B-BBEE Scorecards and gain tax rebates on completed programmes.
