Business Unity South Africa (BUSA) have put together a number of workplace readiness tools to help businesses that are reopening to put in place the necessary occupational health and safety provisions to enable a safe Return2Work. The following documents has reference:


Risk adjusted strategy regulations – as issued, note in particular page 15 and Annexure E that have been included in the practice note and CEO declaration.

Note, these documents seek to incorporate all the relevant official requirements, but do not replace the law. If a business has already assessed its occupational health and safety risks and put in place a plan, the business need not use these tools. The material is provided for guidance in the absence of the business having a process and plan in place; or as an additional reference to ensure that all important risk factors and control measures are considered. It is important to remind all businesses to keep their occupational health and safety records, and risk management approach available in the event that it is required for reporting or compliance purposes.

These documents will be available for download this evening on the following Return2Work website at:  together with official reference documents and resources. We will add further useful links to resources over the coming days and weeks. Note that the sector planning tool is already loaded and available on the website.
