The ACHASM Client Leadership Forum

The “ACHASM” Client Leadership Forum” [ACLF] is the only Association dedicated to supporting both private and public sector customers of construction.

The ACLF supports all clients, regardless of their core business activity, by promoting construction health and safety best practice for construction procurement and ultimately an improved built asset.

Of equal importance, ACHASM has a significant Built Environment Professional representational role with recognised voluntary associations and councils being:

ACPM (Association of Construction Project Managers)
ASAQS (Association of South African Quantity Surveyors)
CESA (Consulting Engineers South Africa)
ILASA (Institute for Landscape Architecture in South Africa)
SABTACO (South African Black Technical and Allied Careers Organisation)
SAIA (South African Institute of Architects)
SACPCMP (South African Council For The Project and Construction Management Professions)
which provides Construction Clients with a credible platform to voice their concerns.

As a forum we will/be:

  • A voice for all Construction Clients
  • Provide opportunities for Construction Clients to network and share Construction OHS Best Practice
  • Provide regional Construction Client events
  • Offer opportunities for Construction Client OHS training and development
  • Provide guidance and disseminate Construction Client OHS Best Practice

“As Construction Client YOU have the POWER to ensure a sustainable development”

The first version of this unique seminar was first presented by Construction Research Education and Training Enterprises (CREATE) in Port Elizabeth on 3 December 2009. It evolved from the half-day South African Institute of Architectural Technologists (SAIAT) Construction Health and Safety Seminar presented on 17 May 2008 at SAIAT’s AGM in Port Elizabeth. More recently, an updated version was presented under the auspices of ACHASM in Bloemfontein on 13 March 2018. It will be staged in other cities in September and October 2018.

Two of fifteen specific outcomes include an increased ability to: understand and appreciate the importance of a multi-stakeholder approach to construction H&S, and understand and appreciate the importance of addressing construction H&S during the design, planning, and documentation stages of a project.  

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