Minister Thulas Nxesi took to Twitter to encourage the public to report employers and workplaces that do not adhere to the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

Minister of Employment and Labour, Thulas Nxesi took to Twitter on Tuesday, 5 January 2021, to call on employees to report employers and workplaces that do not adhere to the Occupational Health and Safety Act. This week marked the first week that workers who were granted a festive season break started returning to work, with full operations expected to resume in the coming week.

Therefore, the Labour Department is looking to ensure the safety of workers returning to work, especially in light of the COVID-19 second wave. Moreover, stricter compliance and regulations are encouraged in public spaces.

Nxesi stated, “Report employers who aren’t adhering to the Occupational Health and Safety Act using the contact list below. This includes hiding COVID-19 positive cases at work and the lack of personal protective equipment (PPE).”
