Minister Thulas Nxesi to address issues of national importance at Transformation Indaba

The Honourable Minister of Public Works, Mr Thulas Nxesi at the inauguration of the CBEs 5th term Council on Wednesday 16 January 2019 expressed his Department’s expectations of the CBE, specifically that of transforming the South African Built Environment sector. During his address the CBE was reminded of its priority mandate to be the leader and driver of transformation in the built environment. These issues would be further interrogated at the CBE’s second annual Transformation Indaba, set for 7-8 February 2019 at the CSIR Conference Centre in Pretoria.

The Minster called for a renewed and sustainable approach to address the slow pace of transformation and working in silos so prevelant among sector stakeholders. To this effect the CBE will act as lead sector coordinator of the South African built environment, with a specific focus on building public / private sector partnerships while drawing on the active participation of the academic sphere of our country.

Clarity on the specification of registered persons appointed to provide services within the context of the Built Environment

SOUTH AFRICAN COUNCIL FOR THE PROJECT AND CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT PROFESSIONS (SACPCMP)

 

We wish to advise that the SACPCMP is one of the six (6) Councils for the Built Environment Professions (CBEPs) that has been established by Acts of Parliament and in the case of the SACPCMP this is through Act No 48 of 2000.

 What is synonymous with each of these CBEP’s is that under Section 18 of the Act they prescribe the categories of Registration that reside under the ambit of each of these CBEP’s. 

We would like to provide clarity on the specification of the registered persons to be appointed to provide services within the context of the Built Environment.

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

Westville Country Club (WCC), Durban, Monday, 29 October 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.

THE ROLE OF PROCUREMENT AND SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT IN CONSTRUCTION HEALTH AND SAFETY SUMMIT

 2 Day Summit

Belmont Square Conference Centre, Cape Town, South Africa,

1 - 2 October 2018

Introduction

‘The Role of Procurement and SCM in Construction H&S’ focuses on issues and processes related to appointing and managing stakeholders in terms of H&S. This focus will include the interface between clients, construction project managers, construction H&S agents, designers, quantity surveyors, contractors (construction managers), subcontractors (construction managers), and suppliers, including construction H&S managers and officers, and other stakeholders. The theme was identified due to the role of procurement and SCM in H&S, the issues that arise, and mention of the supply chain relative to ‘accidents’, and collapses in the media.    

The summit will be of relevance to architects, Construction H&S Agents / Managers / Officers, engineers, inspectors, interior designers, project managers, quantity surveyors, and all interested construction role players.

Programme

Day 1 will feature presentations addressing, among other, cidb update, pre-qualifying CHSAs, prevention through design, the role of public sector procurement in construction H&S, SACPCMP update, Section 37 of the OHS Act: acts or omissions by employees or mandatories, statistics and the cost of accidents (FEM), and the role of BIM in managing the supply chain during temporary works. These will be followed by an ‘H&S Rant: What keeps me awake at night! courtesy of the delegates. The official proceedings on day 1 will be followed by a networking function.  

Day 2 will feature workshops, namely contracts and H&S issues, costing and pricing for CHSA services, ISO 45001, prevention through design, and temporary works design. The official proceedings on day 2 will be followed by the ACHASM AGM.
