2015 Construction Health & Safety provincial workshops

The review of the Construction Regulations 2003 was finalised and promulgated on the 10 February 2014. The 2014 revision was launched by the Minister of Labour, Honourable Ms Mildred Oliphant, MP and Minister of Public Works, Honourable Mr Thembelani Nxesi, MP. As a result of this promulgation, the South African Council for the Project and Construction Management Professions (SACPCMP) has been approved by the National Department of Labour as the only statutory body recognised to register Construction Health and Safety (CHS) Professionals in terms of Construction Regulation 5(8) of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Act No. 85 of 1993.

The following categories of Construction Health and Safety have been approved for registration:
   1. Professional Construction Health & Safety Agent (Pr.CHSA)
   2. Construction Health & Safety Manager (CHSM)
   3. Construction Health & Safety Officer (CHSO)

The Department of Labour wishes to announce that all those working in the built environment are expected to comply with the Construction Regulations 2014. Regulation 3 and 5 (7)(b) will come into effect on the 7 August 2015. The Chief Inspector allowed an eighteen (18) month period which commenced from 7 February 2014 for competent persons to register with the SACPCMP, which was deemed to be sufficient and a reasonable time in which to do so.

The SACPCMP is currently running Provincial workshops to assist CHS practitioners with the
application process. The workshops are designed as a working session that can be effectively done with a manageable group of 60 people per session. Kindly note that parallel sessions have been arranged to accommodate 60 people per session at some of the venues due to the high demand.

The status of the venues is outlined below above and priority at the venues will be given to those that have registered for that particular workshop in the city and province indicated.

Time allocation for all workshops is as follows:
   Registration start at 07:30am for all workshops.
   Sessions start at 08:30 -17:
