Health & Saftey
CT4 Construction acknowledges that Health & Safety is to be an essential part of the employees working environment and the effect is has on projects.
“Construction H&S is impacted on by various participants across the life cycle of a construction project. Decisions made at one stage in the life cycle also affect H&S at another stage further down in the life cycle, and key responsibilities at the various stages are to appoint participants that have the necessary competence and capacity in construction H&S relevant to the project risks. Furthermore, construction H&S performance is influenced by the H&S specification and communication of H&S expectations and requirements from one participant to the others, and importantly on the effective monitoring of compliance with these expectations.”
CT4 Construction is working towards conforming to the primary Acts that impact on construction H&S in South Africa which are the Occupational Health and Safety Act No. 85 of 1993 (OH&S Act) and the complementary Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act No. 130 of 1993 (COID Act). The OH&S Act replaced the previous Machinery and Occupational Safety Act No. 6 of 1983, the Machinery and Occupational Safety Amendment Act No. 40 of 1989, the Machinery and Occupational Safety Amendment Act No. 97 of 1991
Health & Safety Management Systems and other initiatives, training programs and education for employees for first aid, hazard identification, risk assessment and the development of Health and Safety are currently being explored and actioned.
We are dedicated in addressing risks and impacts in a systematic, comprehensive and professional manner, developing effective management systems and employing the critical principles of forward planning, efficiency and wise resources utilization.
Alan Van Der Walt will assume safety officer responsibilities and compile the health & Safety management system for CT4 as per Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA).
