How do I find out about employer responsibilities and worker rights?

Employees in South Africa have a right to a safe workplace. The law requires employers to provide their employees with working conditions that are free of known dangers. The law also prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for exercising their rights under the law (including the right to raise a health and safety concern or report an injury).

Cygma SHEQ has a great deal of information to assist employers in complying with their responsibilities under the Occupational Health & Safety Act, 1993.

We can help answer questions or concerns from employers and workers. To reach your regional or area office, go to Branches or click here.
