Department of Employment and Labour – Workplace Preparedness: COVID-19
‘’The legislation governing workplaces in relation to COVID – 19 is the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Act 85 of 1993, as amended, read with the Hazardous Biological Agents Regulations. Section 8 (1) of the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act, Act 85 of 1993, as amended, requires the employer to provide and maintain as far as is reasonably practicable a working environment that is safe and without risks to the health of employees.
Specifically, section 8(2)(b) requires steps such as may be reasonably practicable to eliminate or mitigate any hazard or potential hazard before resorting to personal protective equipment (PPE).
However, in the case of COVID–19, a combination of controls is required, although the main principle is to follow the hierarchy of controls.
However, before the implementation of control measures, current risk assessments need to be reviewed and updated, taking into account the new hazards posed by exposure to COVID19 in the workplace. This is in accordance with Section 8 (2) (d) of the OHS Act.’’ You can read the full document, here!
