Why use an Industrial Psychologist?
In order to perform psychological acts as defined by the Health Professions Act (No. 56 of 1974) a Psychologist must be registered with the Health Professions Counsel of South Africa (HPCSA). The advantage of using an Industrial and Organisational Psychologist (IOP), registered with the HPCSA, lies in their ability to provide a professional service guided by relevant legislation while at the same time adhering to a strict ethical code.
IOPs are required to operate within their scope of practise as specified by the HPCSA and the Professional Board of Psychology. Registered psychologists should, at all times, strive to provide a service that is professional and fair to all.
