Safal Steel counts specifying professionals as critical influencers for its products. In 2017 it embarked on a series of educational events aimed at its Customers and Specifiers in the 3 major cities of South Africa, and in 2018 rolled out the programme further to include the cities of Bloemfontein and Polokwane.
Both the all-morning events were well attended by local engineers, quantity surveyors and architects who appreciated that the events had been bought to their home town.
They also praised the high calibre of the presentations, and the practical knowledge they gleaned, which is relevant to their daily professions and practices.
The presentations at these events are pre-approved by the relevant Institution for their members and accredited to earn the attendees Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points.
Presentation topics included:
- Advanced Coated Steel and Allied Applications
- Metal Cladding and Roofing Standards
The Bloemfontein event, held in September 2018, was attended by 61 professionals.
The Polokwane event in June 2018 was attended by just under 50 local specifiers and influencers.
