In line with the requirement of the SAIOH QMS procedures and continuous improvement programme the CPD points system was updated.
After several complaints and queries relating to the new allocations I realise that we rolled the new system out quickly with poor communication to our members. I apologise on behalf of myself and the PCB and detail the reasons for the changes and additional support and allowance we will make for the 2015 submissions.
Please read the information and understand the new requirements that need to be implemented during 2016 to allow you to ensure that you claim all relevant points at the end of this year. READ MORE HERE
Occupational Health and Safety Act, 85 of 1995
Inclusion of new chemical onto the RL and CL OEL lists in the Regulations for Hazardous Chemical Substances.
As you may be well aware the Department of Labour is in the process of reviewing the Occupational Exposure Levels as per Table 1 (Control limits of hazardous chemical substances) and Table 2 (Recommended limits for hazardous chemical substances) in the Regulations for Hazardous chemical Substances (1995).
This is considered an optimal opportunity to consult stakeholders regarding inclusions of '
new" chemical substances into Table 1 (CL) and 2 (RL) that was not stipulated there previously. If you want to propose a chemical substance inclusion in the draft regulation please visit the SAIOH website and complete ANNEXURE A and return it to the Department of Labour on the contact details included.
Please return the proposals by 20 November 2015.
Note: not all proposals will automatically qualify for inclusion.
