Dear employer

The Department of Employment and Labour has issued amended regulations which employers, who are permitted to operate under Alert Level 3, need to comply with to ensure a safe working environment in accordance with prevailing legislation.

In order to assist employers with compliance with these regulations, NEASA has updated the Toolkit which may be utilised in implementing the necessary measures.

The key areas that have been updated in the amended regulations have been addressed by amendments (marked in yellow) to the following documents:

Return to work policy
Workplace Plan

The following document is also added:

Vulnerable employee policy

The amended regulations also provide links to various Department of Health guidelines that can assist employers in dealing with Covid-19 in the workplace, in Annexure A thereof.

Please note that not all the requirements will be applicable to every workplace and that the documents are of a generic nature. Therefore, employers will need to assess the risk of their particular workplace and amend the documentation accordingly.

We also include the original documents as contained in the previous newsletter:

Return to work policy
Workplace Plan
Detailed employer responsibilities
COVID-19 checklist
Minutes of meeting
Warrant letter and appointment of Compliance Officer
Use of company vehicles
PPE register
Screening register
Screening confirmation form
Vulnerable employee policy

We will keep members abreast of developments in this regard.
