SAIT: Corona Virus - Covid-19

Understanding Friction, Lubrication and Wear

The SAIT is fully aware of the Corona Virus-Covid19 pandemic, and will follow all guide-lines issued by the Government as strictly as possible.

We will continue to keep everyone advised of any changes as they arise.

At present, we are continuing to prepare for our scheduled Lubrication Engineering courses through the year, the next scheduled for 25-29 May in Johannesburg:

  • Each course involves fewer than 30 delegates – well under the limit of 100 set by government for gatherings.
  • Our venues are well-organised for safely and hygienically hosting the courses.
  • Should delegates need to isolate themselves, or are taken ill or affected by the South African Border Closures, fees and bookings will be carried forward to the next available course that they are able to attend.
  • Our offices remain open for business – but please don’t visit if you have any symptoms of illness (thank you). We, in the office, are aware of and are taking all necessary precautions to avoid the virus.
  • We will be able to work from home if the need arises for quarantine or isolation.

We wish everyone continued health and productivity.
