COVID-19 | UPDATE
On Sunday, 12 July 2020, President Ramaphosa announced further restrictions under Level 3, in an attempt to curb the rampant spread of the COVID-19 virus. Click on the link below to access the revised Regulations.
As an industry we need to do our bit in heeding to the call and we encourage our members to adhere to the protocols which are in place and to ensure compliance.
Our OHS Manager, Deon Bester, has put together an Audit Checklist for your use, as well as a reminder of the basic principles which need to be followed.
Also of interest below, is a series of free CPD accredited Webinars which are being conducted on 23rd July by FEM in their attempt to fight he spread of COVID-19. Be sure to register for these informative talks.
In the President's speech on Sunday night, he made a plea to the nation to act responsibly and practice the three fundamentals of preventing the spread of the virus, namely:
Wash hands frequently or sanitize if soap and water is not available;
Wear a face mask whilst in public;
Practice social distancing.
We need to take heed of this plea and accept that the virus is spreading at a rapid rate and that, as responsible citizens of South Africa, we can dramatically influence a reduction in the infection rate. My experience in visiting construction sites over the last few weeks indicates that contractors are doing everything possible to manage the spread of the virus on sites by providing the necessary PPE, hand washing facilities, screening protocols, social distancing and training.
