We subscribe to international operating standards, and use only the latest technology and research, in order to excel in the field of blood science.
We are fully accredited by the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS), as well as by Technilaw, an independent accreditation organisation that certifies our compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
South African National Accreditation System (SANAS):
SANAS is based on a combination of the ISO9000 and ISO17025 systems, and is recognised internationally. These systems ensure a systematic operating methodology and increased quality in service standards. Ultimately, this benefits both donors and recipients.
All divisions of our organisation – blood banks, clinics, testing laboratories, processing and administration – are tested annually and have been found to comply with all SANAS requirements since September 2002.
Technilaw is an outcomes-based training programme and consultancy service. It provides its clients with essential support relating to health and safety matters.
All our public and in-company training courses undergo regular, stringent review and continuous development. This ensures that they remain appropriate to Technilaw’s legal requirements.
The Western Province Blood Transfusion Service is audited annually by Technilaw, particularly in terms of safety procedures in the workplace. We have maintained a 5-star Technilaw Occupational Health and Safety grading (indicating between 91% and 100% compliance) since 2006.
