Re: FOLD UP SCAFFOLDING

Hi Cleone

It would generally be determined by the "Fall Protection Plan" that is preformed by a competent person.

No person is required to work in a fall risk position, unless such work is performed safely as contemplated in the Fall Protection Plan.

Re: Day Zero - No water supplied by municipality

Hi Geine

Yes, the water shortage creates a unique situation for Cape Town.

Most of the employers provide water dispensers for drinking water and also place containers with additional water in the bathrooms (for the washing of hands and the flushing of toilets when the water is cut off).

Re: Appointment Breach

Hi Maxicus

Trust all is well.

Because the maintenance manager is a section 16(2) appointee it would be advisable that “3. the CEO appoint the maintenance manager as the ladder inspector”.

Re: PPE payment

It works on the” Balance of Probability”.

The employer needs to prove 51% or more that negligence was involved.

Re: Iod

The Compensation Fund became very lenient towards accidents on the premises of the employer.

It would be advisable to submit the claim and let the Compensation Fund make the ruling on the claim.
