Do you need to set up a Site Specific Health and Safety File?

Safety files are important for any business, and Cape Town (South Africa) is no exception. It's important to keep your safety file up-to-date in order to avoid injuries, fines, penalties and death. Zenith Safety Consultants offers a range of services paired with the health and safety file in Cape Town and remaining parts of South africa including the provision of safety files, health and safety assessments, and consultancy services.

A contractor safety file, also known as a Health and Safety File or Construction Safety File, is a record of information about the management of Health and Safety on construction sites for contractors and subcontractors. It also demonstrates that the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations have been followed.

The Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993, within the Construction Regulations 2014, requires every contractor and subcontractor to keep a Health and Safety File on hand at all times.

Zenith Safety Consultants in Cape Town understand that every site has its own site-specific Health and Safety Requirements. The Safety File that Zenith Safety Consultants will put together, is according to the client's and the site's safety requirements (Site Specific Health and Safety Files).

Zenith Safety Consultants Safety Files will include the following documents:

  • Letter of Good Standing, Policies, HSE Rules & Mandatory Agreement
