What do you do when a Department of Labour Inspector arrives at your premises?

The following are some of the things that the inspectors from the Department will look out for:

 *Are you registered with the compensation fund?

 *Are you registered with the unemployment insurance Act?

 *Do you have a copy of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the relevant regulations on  the premises and are they available for the employees to read?

 *Do you display a summary of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act?

 *Do you display a summary of the Employment Equity Act?

 *Have you appointed health and safety representatives?

 *Have you established health and safety committees?

 *Are you and your workers trained to recognise health and safety problems?

 *Do you have fully equipped first aid boxes on the premises?

 *Are all electrical wires insulated and proper plugs used in the workplace?

 *Do you report injuries at work to the Labour Department?

 *Do you have clean and hygienic toilets and washing facilities provided for males and females?

 *Do you have an attendance register at your workplace?

Make SURE you are prepared!
