2008 Health & Safety Awards

The 45th annual Health and Safety Awards function was held at the Durban Country Club on Friday evening 24 October 2008. More than two hundred delegates attended the function and witnessed how the MBA paid tribute to its members, who excelled in the 2008 OHS competition.

The recipients were praised for their adherence to health and safety. This was made even more noteworthy, when one considers the pressures under which construction companies are currently working. Some 50 sites entered into the 2008 regional OHS competition and as there was only a small window of opportunity during which the sites could be judged (when work is usually at peak), the number of entries was extremely gratifying.

The standards were extremely high, when one takes into account the fact that the sites were scrupulously audited on more than 20 different elements. These included administrative and legal requirements, training, public safety, PPE, housekeeping, scaffolding, electrical safeguarding, plant and machinery, excavations, transport and material handling to name but a few.

Our Members came through with flying colours this year - no less than 8 entries received the presidential award for scoring more than 95% and came first in their respective categories in the National OHS competition.
