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.

Belmont Square Conference Centre, Cape Town, South Africa,

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.

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.
