2 Day Summit
Belmont Square Conference Centre, Cape Town, South Africa,
1 - 2 October 2018
‘The Role of Procurement and SCM in Construction H&S’ focuses on issues and processes related to appointing and managing stakeholders in terms of H&S. This focus will include the interface between clients, construction project managers, construction H&S agents, designers, quantity surveyors, contractors (construction managers), subcontractors (construction managers), and suppliers, including construction H&S managers and officers, and other stakeholders. The theme was identified due to the role of procurement and SCM in H&S, the issues that arise, and mention of the supply chain relative to ‘accidents’, and collapses in the media.
The summit will be of relevance to architects, Construction H&S Agents / Managers / Officers, engineers, inspectors, interior designers, project managers, quantity surveyors, and all interested construction role players.
Day 1 will feature presentations addressing, among other, cidb update, pre-qualifying CHSAs, prevention through design, the role of public sector procurement in construction H&S, SACPCMP update, Section 37 of the OHS Act: acts or omissions by employees or mandatories, statistics and the cost of accidents (FEM), and the role of BIM in managing the supply chain during temporary works. These will be followed by an ‘H&S Rant: What keeps me awake at night! courtesy of the delegates. The official proceedings on day 1 will be followed by a networking function.
Day 2 will feature workshops, namely contracts and H&S issues, costing and pricing for CHSA services, ISO 45001, prevention through design, and temporary works design. The official proceedings on day 2 will be followed by the ACHASM AGM.

The first version of this unique seminar was first presented by Construction Research Education and Training Enterprises (CREATE) in Port Elizabeth on 3 December 2009. It evolved from the half-day South African Institute of Architectural Technologists (SAIAT) Construction Health and Safety Seminar presented on 17 May 2008 at SAIAT’s AGM in Port Elizabeth. More recently, an updated version was presented under the auspices of ACHASM in Bloemfontein on 13 March 2018, Port Elizabeth on 20 August, and East London on 21 August. It will be staged in Midrand in September, and other cities in October 2018.
Two of fifteen specific outcomes include an increased ability to: understand and appreciate the importance of a multi-stakeholder approach to construction H&S, and understand and appreciate the importance of addressing construction H&S during the design, planning, and documentation stages of a project.
The seminar will be of relevance to architects, Construction H&S Agents / Managers / Officers, construction managers, contractors, engineers, inspectors, interior designers, project managers, quantity surveyors, and all interested construction role players.
