WE ASSIST YOU TO GET DEPARTMENT OF LABOUR COMPLIANCE
The Department of Labour (DOL) has closed down many companies for not complying with the Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993. (OHSA) and has issued several warnings to other businesses during various inspections and operations in South Africa. An inspector can enter your company premises at any time to investigate your compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA).
Inspectors – what are their powers?
The Chief Inspector, or his delegates (usually other inspectors appointed by the DOL), can enter your premises or any premises where your employee works and conduct inspections. They can inspect your workplace, question people, examine documents and other articles, and generally gather evidence to determine if your business is complying with The OSHA 85 of 1993.
9 General Powers of Inspectors
To monitor or enforce compliance with Occupational health and Safety Act (OHSA), the inspector can:
Enter any premises where employees work, at all reasonable times, without prior notice;
Question any person on these premises on any matter relating to Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993. (OHSA);
Require any person to produce any book or document and make copies of extracts or the whole book or document;
Obtain explanations from people on any entry or non-entry in this book or document;
Inspect any article, substance, plant or machinery;
Inspect any work performed;
Seize any document, article, substance or machinery which may serve as evidence at the trial of any person charged with an offence under the Act;
Direct any employer, employee or user to appear before him;
Perform any other prescribed function.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993 clearly stipulates the responsibilities of Employers towards their employees in the form of mandatory training and workplace inspections.
