Construction Regulations

Did you know that on average 2 construction workers die every week??

It is a sad reality that nearly every single month, there is a fatality on a building site somewhere in South Africa. And if you haven’t had a visit from an inspector yet – you will soon!

The Construction Regulations form part of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (Act 85 of 1993) and the revision of the Construction Regulations (Regulation 8) were promulgated on the 10th of February 2014. In a nutshell the aim of the Construction Regulations is to place legal responsibilities on all key stakeholders in the construction industry to address and radically improve health and safety issues on construction sites.

So what does this mean for you?

The Construction Regulations introduced the concept of a construction work-permit system for all projects over R120 million. So this means that now an application needs to be lodged with the Department of Labour 30 days before any construction work is actually undertaken. In addition  all health and safety construction professionals need to now be registered with the SACPCMP in one of the following three potential categories, namely as a construction health and safety manager, construction health and safety agent or construction health and safety officer.

The Construction Regulations have far-reaching implications for individual construction professionals and companies alike. You need to make sure that you are prepared but more importantly compliant with the Construction Regulations – you simply don’t have a choice.
