Ergonomics Regulations, 2019/ Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations (85/1993)

 

Dear reader

 

Please note that the Minister of Employment and Labour has, under section 43 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, 1993 (Act No. 85 of 1993), after consultation with the Advisory Council for Occupational Health and Safety, made the regulations in the Schedule.

 

These Regulations are called the Ergonomics Regulations, 2018 and will apply to any employer or self-employed person who carries out work at a workplace, which may expose any person to ergonomic risks in that workplace; and a designer, manufacturer, importer or supplier of machinery, plant or work systems for use at a workplace.

 

Please note that the new regulations came into effect from the date of publication (Gazette No. 42894/ R.1589 of 2019 dated 6 December 2019).
