Recent changes to the Construction Regulations have completely changed the way we manage health and safety on construction sites.  The most important changes as a result of the new regulations  are the inclusion of health and safety in the pre-construction phases, the professional registration with SACPCMP of OHS practitioners and the introduction of a construction work permit for certain categories of construction projects.
