Safety compliance made simple and affordable

January 8th, 2019, Published in Articles: Vector

Many SMMEs are neglecting their safety responsibilities, compromising their employees’ well-being and placing their companies and clients at risk. Despite the Occupational Health and Safety Act’s and Construction Regulations’ stipulation that every contractor or sub-contractor must prepare a health and safety file specific to each work site, many choose to ignore this. According to Pantelis Patric Eleftheriou, managing director of FTS Safety Group, a health and safety file can cost between R5000 and R20 000, a huge burden for small companies. FTS Safety Group can use its 33 years’ experience in safety training and consulting and the sale of safety equipment to take the pain out of compliance and make it cost effective. It has created a programme allowing contractors to be mentored. The company creates a living document using customised software and keeps track of each company’s risks and any controls needed.
