SafetyWallet – Contractor Management – Introduction



As per the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993, the employer is legally bound to provide and maintain, as far as reasonably practicable, a working environment which is safe and without risk to the health and safety of workers.

This means that the workplace must be free of any hazardous substances, articles, equipment, processes, and any other factors which may cause injury, damage, or disease.

As far as Contractor and Supplier management is concerned, it serves the following purposes:

  • To guide as well as manage the health and safety of all contractors, mandatories, suppliers, and any other persons overseen by the company.
  • To provide the structure necessary and required for corrective actions to be implemented successfully where contractors or suppliers may be in a breach of safety standards.
  • To provide an outline for accountability as well as implementation associated with requirements to ensure compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act, 85 of 1993, and any other relevant legislation.
  • To provide an outline for accountability associated with achieving and maintaining compliance to legislation through the assistance and support of SafetyWallet and other initiatives.
  • To ensure that contractors and suppliers are verified and to aid with implementing requirements in line with Health and Safety Legislation and best practices.
