As lockdown restrictions in South Africa are gradually relaxed, more industries will resume operations.
This comes with the condition that companies comply with a range of new health and safety protocols and guidelines as determined by the Department of Employment and Labour.
These are intended to help curb the spread of COVID-19 during each of the levels of lockdown and for the foreseeable future.
All employers are therefore required to assess their activities, working environments and policies to ensure their workplace is safe for their staff, customers and suppliers.
CURA Software Solutions – an expert in the field of Governance, Risk and Compliance software -offers a product which empowers businesses with excellent oversight capability in the implementation of these measures.
Its COVID-19 Workplace Response Tracker enables your organisation to become operational and maintain your operating processes.
This will help your company to better implement requirements in the short time allowed and avoid fines or costly business closures for non-compliance.
