According to PSL official website, the workshops, amongst other things, will assist club Security Officers, Event Organisers and other role players to be better equipped in dealing with all safety components at matches.

The first workshop will be held at the PSL Offices in Parktown on Tuesday, 13 January 2014. This will be followed by another workshop two days later in Durban on Thursday, 15 January 2015. More workshops will be held in Polokwane, Cape Town and Bloemfontein.

The workshops will aim at establishing a standardized operational approach in planning and managing of all Premier Division and National First Division matches and to narrow operational gap between PSL, SAPS, Disaster management, the clubs and any other security role player on issues of security at PSL matches.

It will also establish command and control structure as well as coordination mechanism to support integrated and cohesive planning, implementation and execution and ensure safe, secure and incident free PSL matches at all stadiums.

PSL General Manager for Safety and Security, Phillip Masimong said: “Safety and Security is one of the most important elements of any event. As the PSL, we have been doing a lot of introspection on how we can improve on safety and security at our stadiums. We also want capacity building – to empower the Safety Officers to be able to deal with any situation at their venue.”
