Did you know that on average 2 construction workers die every week??
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 finally promulgated on the 10th February 2014. In a nutshell the aim of the 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 have introduced the concept of a construction work-permit system that requires an application to be lodged with the Department of Labour 30 days before any construction work is undertaken. In addition the regulations require all construction professionals 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.
By January 2014 only 191 construction professionals had applied and only 21 had actually been registered so you can’t afford to leave this outstanding any longer because this will mean the difference between winning and losing work in the future.

The Construction Regulations have far-reaching implications for individual construction professionals and companies alike. And although there is an 18 month grace period (which started in Feb 2014), now is the time to actually get ready and start to take this seriously because the grace period is unlikely to be extended!
However the grace period does buy you some breathing space…but if you have been putting off training your staff until now…you really need to rethink this strategy as you only have 13 months left, which as we all know goes by in the blink of an eye. You need to make sure that you are prepared but more importantly compliant with the regulations.
So, if you have been considering or have decided that now is the time to get your staff up-to-speed with the issues relating to the Construction Regulations then our information-loaded 1-day training course offers you the most cost effective and comprehensive solution to your training needs.

This training course has been designed to cover in detail exactly how the Construction Regulations will affect your business and you will leave this course with a whole new level of understanding of what you need to do to comply, how to apply the regulations in your company, as well as how they will be enforced and a whole lot more.
