Health and safety is sometimes seen as difficult, intimidating and irritating, with sets of rules that must be obeyed. However, through comprehensive training, the subject matter can be easily understood and then becomes an extremely simple concept to grasp.
Health and Safety Compliance is vital for any business to be successful. With this in mind all employers have to consider the adherence to Health and Safety Practices in line with the Occupational Health and Safety Act, its regulations, National Standards and by-laws. It is for these reasons, that SafetyWallet (a subscription-based approach to health and safety), was created in 2018.
A Legal Compliance audit measures compliance in Health and Safety. Also referred to as a Health and Safety Gap analysis, this assessment is required to measure all aspects of your health and safety programme, against the existing legislation, to which it must comply.
The following laws and regulations are in place in the interest of employers, employees and third-party stakeholders across industries in South Africa:
- The Occupational Health and Safety Act (85 of 1993)
- The Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act (COIDA)
- The Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA)
- The Labour Relations Act (LRA)
According to the South African Occupational Health and Safety Act, 85 of 1993, every employer must provide and maintain a working environment that is safe and without risks to the health and safety of employees.
Employers in South Africa are required to ensure that the work environment is free of risks to the health and safety of employees and visitors to the premises. To ensure that this is done, employers are required to assess the exposure that their employees have to hazardous environmental conditions.
