SOUTH AFRICAN COUNCIL FOR THE PROJECT AND CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT PROFESSIONS (SACPCMP)
We wish to advise that the SACPCMP is one of the six (6) Councils for the Built Environment Professions (CBEPs) that has been established by Acts of Parliament and in the case of the SACPCMP this is through Act No 48 of 2000.
What is synonymous with each of these CBEP’s is that under Section 18 of the Act they prescribe the categories of Registration that reside under the ambit of each of these CBEP’s.
We would like to provide clarity on the specification of the registered persons to be appointed to provide services within the context of the Built Environment.
ACHASM would like to notify its members that the SACPCMP has launched a forensic investigation into alleged corrupt and unethical activities by employees and external assessors. The investigation will be carried out by a reputable independent firm and has already been set in motion. It must also be noted that the investigation is not limited to the health & safety division of the SACPCMP but involves the wider project and construction manager sector as well.
We would further encourage our members to divulge any such corrupt or unethical activities to us or directly to the SACPCMP for investigation in an effort to uphold the integrity of our profession and to root out those individuals who intend to undermine our values and put the lives of construction workers at undue risk
Port Elizabeth, 2 August 2017
Please note this awesome opportunity! We are privileged to present the speaker, Dévan Venter, Lead Engineer, PERI, based in Durban, to the NMB construction community.
Support work continues to remain a challenge, collapses and other incidents featuring regularly in the media, and in industry anecdotes.
The presentation will be of relevance to architects, Construction H&S Agents / Managers / Officers, engineers, inspectors, project managers, quantity surveyors, and all interested construction role players.
The Annual ACHASM Summit took place in October this year. It was very well attended and, from all accounts, thoroughly enjoyed by all participants.
The wide range of topics meant that there was something of interest for all participants. A very big thank you to all of our guest speakers & to our main sponsor, PERI. without whom the 2 days could not have been as successful as what they were.
From discovering hidden talents (thank-you Louis for all your IT support!), to hearing about all of the latest happenings in our Guest Speakers' areas of expertise, the 2 days proved to be an invaluable learning experience.
ACHASM 'PRE-MORTEMS VERSUS POST-MORTEMS: ASSURING H&S THROUGHOUT A PROJECT’S STAGES VERSUS LEARNING BY ACCIDENT' SUMMIT,
WESTVILLE COUNTRY CLUB, DURBAN, 10 - 11 OCTOBER 2016
The theme was identified due to the increased media coverage afforded the construction industry in terms of ‘accidents’, in addition to the incidence of fatalities, notwithstanding the fact that ‘one fatality is one too many’.
The African Construction and Totally Concrete Expos are the definitive African educational and networking platform for insights on the latest developments and technologies associated with the cement, concrete and construction industry.
The interactive discussions focus on challenges and solutions of new developments and also identify new opportunities for the industry. International, high-level speakers will present their views through presentations, case studies and interactive panels.
