THE SOUTH AFRICAN COVID 19 GUIDELINE:

The legislation governing workplaces in relation to COVID –19 is the Occupational Health and Safety  Act,  Act  85  of  1993,  as  amended, read  with  the  Hazardous  Biological  Agents Regulations. Section 8 (1) of the Occupational Health and Safety(OHS)Act, Act  85 of 1993, as amended, requires the employer to provide and maintain as far as is reasonably practicable a working environment that is safe and without risks to the health of employees. Specifically section 8(2)(b) requires steps such as may be reasonably practicable to eliminate or mitigate any  hazard  or  potential  hazard  before  resorting  to  personal  protective  equipment(PPE). However, in the case of COVID–19, a combination of controls is required, although the main principle is to follow the hierarchy of controls.”
