This part of the specification has the objective to assist Principal Contractors entering into contracts with SANRAL that they comply with the Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Act, No. 85 of 1993. Compliance with this document does not absolve the Principal Contractor from complying with minimum legal requirements and the Principal Contractor remains responsible for the health and safety of his employees and those of his Mandataries. Principal and other Contractors should therefore insist that this part of the Specification form part of any contract that he may have with other Contractors and/or Suppliers. This section covers the development of a health and safety specification that addresses all aspects of occupational health and safety as affected by this contract. It provides the requirements that Principal Contractors and other Contractors shall comply with in order to reduce the risks associated with this contract that may lead to incidents causing injury and/or ill health.

2.0 2.1 2.1.1

GENERAL OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY PROVISIONS Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment (Construction Regulation 7) Risk Assessments

Paragraph 4 contains a generic list of risk assessment headings that have been identified by SANRAL as possibly applicable to this contract. It is, by no means, exhaustive and is offered as assistance to Contractors intending to tender. 2.1.2 Development of Risk Assessments

Every Principal Contractor performing construction work shall, before the commencement of any construction work or work associated with the aforesaid construction work and during such work, cause a risk assessment to be performed by a competent person, appointed in writing, and the risk assessment shall form part of the OH&S plan and be implemented and maintained as contemplated in Construction Regulation 5(1). The risk assessment shall include, at least: the identification of the risks and hazards to which persons may be exposed the analysis and evaluation of the risks and hazards identified a documented plan of safe work procedures to mitigate, reduce or control the risks and hazards that have been identified a monitoring plan and a review plan

Based on the risk assessment, the Principal Contractor shall develop a set of site-specific OH&S rules that shall be applied to regulate the OH&S aspects of the construction. The risk assessment, together with the site-specific OH&S rules shall be submitted to SANRAL before construction on site commences. Despite the risk assessments listed in paragraph 4, the Principal Contractor shall conduct a baseline risk assessment and the aforesaid listed risk assessment shall be incorporated into the baseline risk assessment. The baseline risk assessment shall further include the standard working procedures and the applicable method statements based on the risk assessments All variations to the scope of work shall similarly be subjected to a risk assessment process.

# 377437-v1


to be conversant with Regulations 8 to 29 (inclusive) to comply with their provisions to include them in his OH&S plan where relevant.

The Contractor shall identify the hazards in the workplace and deal with them. He must either remove them or, where impracticable, take steps to protect workers and make it possible for them to work safely and without risk to health under the hazardous conditions. Personal protective equipment (PPE) should, however, be the last resort and there should always first be an attempt to apply engineering and other solutions to mitigating hazardous situations before the issuing of PPE is considered. Where it is not possible to create an absolutely safe and healthy workplace the Contractor shall inform employees regarding this and issue, free of charge, suitable equipment to protect them from any hazards being present and that allows them to work safely and without risk to health in the hazardous environment. It is a further requirement that the Contractor maintain the said equipment, that he instructs and trains the employees in the use of the equipment and ensures that the prescribed equipment is used by the employee/s. Employees do not have the right to refuse to use/wear the equipment prescribed by the employer and, if it is impossible for an employee to use or wear prescribed protective equipment through health or any other reason, the employee cannot be allowed to continue working under the hazardous condition/s for which the equipment was prescribed, but an alternative solution has to be found that may include relocating or discharging the employee. The Principal Contractor shall include in his OH&S plan the PPE he intends issuing to his employees for use during construction and the sanctions he intends to apply in cases of non conformance by his employees. Conformance to the wearing of PPE shall be discussed at the weekly inspection meetings. 3.4 Other Regulations

Wherever in the Construction Regulations or this specification there is reference to other regulations (e.g. Construction Regulation 22: Electrical Installations and Machinery on Construction Sites) the Principal Contractor shall be conversant with and shall comply with these regulations. 3.5 Public Health & Safety (Section 9 of the OH&S Act)

The Principal Contractor shall be responsible for ensuring that non-employees affected by the construction work are made aware of the dangers likely to arise from said construction work as well as the precautionary measures to be observed to avoid or minimise those dangers.
