Designing for Construction Health and Safety (H&S) Seminar

[Title]Bloemfontein
Tuesday 13 March 2018

THE NEED FOR THE SEMINAR

In terms of ‘Structures 6(1)’, the Construction Regulations require a range of health and safety (H&S) interventions by designers. Furthermore, there is a need in South Africa for holistically educated clients, project managers, architects, engineers, interior designers, landscape architects, quantity surveyors, construction managers, and construction H&S consultants. Currently, most tertiary built environment programmes, particularly designer related, do not address construction H&S, and if so, then to a limited or cursory extent.In terms of ‘Structures 6(1)’, the Construction Regulations require a range of health and safety (H&S) interventions by designers.

Workplace Alternative Dispute Resolution

Workplace Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) consists of a variety of approaches to early intervention and dispute resolution. Many of these approaches include the use of a neutral individual such as a mediator who can assist disputing parties in resolving their disagreements. ACHASM has negotiated an agreement with RAG Strategists in order to enable members to receive this service at a reduced cost.
