“Introducing effective measures to reduce any health hazard”

Approved Inspection Authority

To ensure that a working environment is safe and doesn’t pose any risks to the health of employees, employers must assess the exposure of their employees to hazardous environmental conditions in the workplace. As per the Occupational Health and Safety Act (Act No. 85 of 1993) this includes measuring employees’ exposure, comparing the results with prescribed standards and implementing the steps needed to comply with the provisions of the aforementioned Act. This process is known as ‘monitoring’ and should be undertaken by an Approved Inspection Authority (AIA).
