How to successfully apply for your construction work permit


1. Decide if you need to apply for a construction work permit
Anyone who's going to have construction work done must apply for a construction work permit.

You must apply for a permit if:

•  Your construction project is going to take longer than 180 days;

•  Your construction project is going to take longer than 1800 construction days to finish; and

•  Your project has a value of R13 million or has a level 6 grade as per the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB).
 
2: Send your application early
As a next step, send your application to the Department of Labour in your region in writing. We recommend you submit your application as early as possible because the approval can take around 30 days.Read on for what to do after you've applied…

Here's how to ensure you're always compliant with ALL of your construction regulations...

What to do once you receive your construction permit


3: Display your site number
The Provincial Director will give you your permit in writing. He'll also assign a site specific number to you. Don't forget that you need a separate permit and number for each construction site.

Display your site-specific number at the main entrance at the construction site. This must be somewhere everyone can see!

4. Keep a copy in your SHE File
Make sure you give your Principal Contractor a copy of your construction work permit. He needs to keep this in your SHE File. This way, when an inspector, an agent or an employee wants to see it, it's accessible!
