The Association of Construction Health and Safety Management (ACHASM) is proud to have been part of the Construction Rapid Response Task Team (CRRTT) to assist in getting the construction sector back to work. As our President, Cyril Ramaphosa has implied, we need to remain vigilant and ensure we follow the rules to limit the spread of COVID-19. Adequate health and safety that complies with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations will provide much of the needed actions to stem the spread of the virus. ACHASM and its members will continue to be part of the team and remain dedicated to the continued health and safety of every industry participant, especially workers.
We would like to thank the following Candidate and Professional Health and Safety Agents for their participation and support in preparing the documentation with our Executive Director, Dr Claire Deacon, submitted to the Minister of Public Works and Infrastructure, and the Department of Employment and Labour: • Michelle Barnard • Jay Bhana • Alfred Cakata • Louis Coetzee • Johan Dempers • David Dolan • Neil Enslin • Vaatjie Heyneke • Tumi Moagi • William Pierce-Jones • Sandile Seme • Liza White
We trust that the industry will continue to work with us to engender healthy and safe working practices that benefit all industry stakeholders – clients, construction project managers, designers, quantity surveyors, contractors, manufacturers and suppliers, and plant and equipment providers.
