Tongaat Mall Collapse Inquiry - Report to be handed to the NPA

 

The Tongaat Mall collapse inquiry reported several contraventions of the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHS Act), and Construction Regulations Amendment, in May 2016.

 

Three years ago, two people were killed and 29 people injured when a column neck exploded, and a section of the mall collapsed during construction on November 19. Twenty-nine workers sustained serious injuries including to the head, back, and lower bodies.

 

Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant said the DOL had “strengthened relations with the NPA to make sure that there is a successful prosecution on Occupational Health and Safety cases that are referred.”
