In OHS Online, the Metropolitan bylaws don’t include the bylaw for my area. What do I do when choosing a Metropolitan?
This problem can occur quite often because we do not cover every municipality and district which is in South Africa. Currently, we only cover the main Metropolitan bylaws within South Africa. This means that if your local or district bylaw is not shown, then you should select the main Metropolitan bylaw which is nearest to you. Although this is not ideal, the health and safety details, applicable to the legislation, will still be applicable to you, since it comes from the main Metropolitan.
It is important to choose a Metropolitan, rather than leave it out because the absence of a Metropolitan will have an effect on the outcome results of your audit.
