Construction Safety Agent

Construction Agent – CR’s (RSA)

IF YOU ARE READING THIS YOU ARE PROBABLY AWARE THAT ON THE 7TH FEBRUARY 2014, NEW CONSTRUCTION REGULATIONS WERE PROMULGATED. IN THESE REGULATIONS THE CLIENT RESPONSIBLE FOR CONSTRUCTION WORK IS HELD ACCOUNTABLE UNDER THE LAW, AND IN SO DOING THE OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY ACT. THIS IS A MAJOR SHIFT FROM THE PRINCIPLE CONTRACTOR BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

THE REGULATIONS ALLOW FOR A SUITABLEY QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE APPOINTED (WHO MUST BY LAW BE REGISTERED AS AN AGENT BY THE SACPCMP). THIS AGENT THEN REPRESENTS THE CLIENT ON SITE, AND SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR CERTAIN DELIVERABLES AND CERTAIN ACCOUNTABILITIES.

CHSEMS (Pty) Ltd IS PROUD TO PROVIDE THESE SERVICES TO OUR CLIENTS, AND IN PARTICULAR IF CONSTRUCTION WORK THAT EXCCEEDS R13m, OR EXCEEDS 180 DAYS OR, 1800 PERSON DAYS OF CONSTRUCTION OR A CIBD LEVEL 6 PROJECT.
