Don’t fall foul of the law!

Finweek English Edition - - Market Place -

The Oc­cu­pa­tional Health and Safety Act aims to pro­vide for the health and safety of per­sons at work and for the health and safety of per­sons in con­nec­tion with the ac­tiv­i­ties of per­sons at work and to es­tab­lish an ad­vi­sory coun­cil for oc­cu­pa­tional health and safety.

The Oc­cu­pa­tional Health and Safety Act ap­plies to all em­ploy­ers and work­ers, but not to:

Mines, min­ing ar­eas or min­ing works (as de­fined in the Min­er­als Act);

Load line ships, fish­ing boats, seal­ing boats, whal­ing boats (as de­fined in the Mer­chant Ship­ping Act) and float­ing cranes – whether in or out of wa­ter – and peo­ple in or on th­ese ar­eas or ves­sels.

By law com­pa­nies are ex­pected to ad­here to South African stan­dards and reg­u­la­tions. The frame­work for th­ese stan­dards is set in the Oc­cu­pa­tional Health and Safety Act of 1993. Hav­ing an ef­fec­tive and ac­cu­rate Oc­cu­pa­tional Health and Safety Sys­tem in place al­lows you to be on top of safety within your work­ing en­vi­ron­ment and have con­trol of your con­trac­tors.

New Me­dia Pub­lish­ing pub­lishes full ver­sions of the Oc­cu­pa­tional Health & Safety Act and Reg­u­la­tions to en­able South African busi­nesses to com­ply with the law.

If you em­ploy five or more per­sons at your work­place, en­sure that you have a copy of this book avail­able at all times! If you want to eas­ily com­ply with all health and safety laws, pre­vent ac­ci­dents be­fore they hap­pen, get your em­ploy­ees to al­ways wear their PPE and avoid un­nec­es­sary ex­pen­sive con­sul­tant fees, then you should be us­ing New Me­dia’s Oc­cu­pa­tional Health & Safety Act and Reg­u­la­tions to as­sist you.
