OHS in the workplace

July2020 To discuss the need for every employer to have a documented OHS workplace plan.


By the end of this event the attendee should:  

  • Understand who the Occupational Health & Safety Act (OHSA) applies to;
  • Be aware of legislative COVID-19 documents issued by the Department of Employment and Labour: 
  • Know which requirements are specifically applicable to organisations with less than 10 employees;
  • Know how to identify and treat vulnerable persons;
  • Be aware of how to deal with a positive COVID-19 case in the workplace; and
  • Understand how to document your OHS Workplace Plan.


Do you have a documented Occupational Health & Safety Workplace Plan? You should have! And if you already have one, are you aware of the latest changes?

Complying with Occupational Health & Safety can be very daunting.  The Department of Employment and Labour has issued regulations, guidelines and additional directives to prevent the escalation of COVID-19 infections in the workplace.  

As accountants and financial professionals, we not only need to ensure that we comply with these OHS measures, but we should also be able to assist our clients with compliance.

During this webinar we look at the requirements as set out in the initial Regulations and Guidelines and the details of the latest Consolidation Direction that was issued. We will also look at the new treatment of “vulnerable persons” in the workplace and the resultant update of workplace plans.

Join the technical expert as she unpacks the COVID-19 OHS measures in the workplace in an understandable format.
