Within any organisation, management, supervisors and employees have rights and responsibilities in terms of the Health and Safety laws to prevent diseases, injuries and death.
Employers are obliged to ensure that employees understand and follow the correct procedures at all times. Penalties for non-compliance include fines and even imprisonment of the CEO, employer and assignees. In the circumstances it is imperative that these stakeholders understand the law and in particular the Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993.
