Can I use software to compile a safety file for my project?
Yes you can. However the OHS Act,85 of 1993 under Construction Regulation 7(1)(a) and (b) requires the contractor to submit a site specific health and safety plan and a safety file for each project.So many companies sell software to contractors, who does not have the required skills and knowledge to compile a safety file.
There is different software available but all the material is generic and will not be specific to the site or the task.This software is generally cheap and once you bought it , you need to spend hours trying to understand the instructions.
What makes the SACPCMP registered consultants better ?
Will you go to a heart surgeon who is not HPCSA registered?
