Risk Assessments

The Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993 places certain responsibilities on the employer (an employer is defined as “any person who employs or provides work for any person and remunerates that person or expressly or tacitly undertakes to remunerate him, but excludes a labour broker” as defined in section 1(1) of the Labour Relations Act {28 of 1956}).

  1. There are an unlimited number of hazards that can be found in almost every workplace. These include both obvious unsafe working conditions and insidious, less obvious hazards.
  2. Hazards often are built into the workplace. Therefore, the employer must ensure that hazards are removed, rather than trying to get workers to adapt to unsafe conditions.
  3. The most effective accident and disease prevention begins when work processes are still in the design stage, when safe conditions can be built into the work process.
