I recently presented at the Construction Regulations 2014 seminar and a question that came up very often was how to register with the South African Council for the Project and Construction Management Professions (SACPCMP). Remember, the change in the Construction Regulations means your Construction Health and Safety Agent (CHS Agent), construction manager, construction safety officer and construction supervisor must register with an organisation approved by the Chief Inspector, i.e. this person must register with SACPCMP because it's the only registration body at the moment.
So, over the next few weeks I'm going to tell you exactly what you need to do to register with the SACPCMP.
Today, let's look at how to register if you're a Construction Health and Safety Agent…
This essential tool guarantees your construction site will always be fully compliant with the DoL's new construction regulations...
If your site fails to comply with just one of the DoL construction regulations, it could result in an incident that leaves dozens of people injured or even dead!
