Responsibility and commitment to ensure a safe working environment are in line with its Safety, Health,
and Environmental Policy (SHE), along with legislative obligations. Peaking Operating Unit (OU) is fully
committed to ensure compliance in this regard. The objective of this note is to outline the basic evaluation
criteria appropriate to the Construction Regulations and to ensure that a common approach is adopted
when engaging in contract/construction work within the OU.

a) Engineering and Construction Contracts(Services)

The contractor/supplier must be in possession of a current Letter of Good Standing, which is

evidence of registration with the Compensation Commissioner as required by the
Compensation for Injuries and Diseases Act 130 of 1993 - (compulsory).

An assessment must be performed on the basis of assessing the contractor/supplier

capability to compile, implements, and maintain a Safety Health and Environmental Plan as
per legislative and Eskom contractual requirements as follows:

- Risk assessments
- Appointments
- Competencies (training)
- Medical Certificates
- Method statements/procedures
- Legal Requirements (Work that is governed by specific legislation
- Environmental compliance, e.g., Waste Management, , Hazardous Chemicals, etc.
(where applicable)

NOTE: non-objective items are mandatory

In order to assess the capability of the potential service provider to compile, implement,
monitor and maintain a SHE Plan for a contract, the potential provider should submit
either a draft SHE plan specific to the contract, or alternatively a copy of a previous SHE
plan where similar work was done.

All potential contracts where work is going to be conducted on site, irrespective of its
value, must be assessed by the Senior Advisor: SHE.

b) The basic requirements of a SHE Plan

The SHE plan must detail specific plans and programmes for implementing the health, safety, and
environmental requirements of the contract. The SHE plan may be a collection of documents and
manuals. The evaluation will inter alia consider the following minimum requirements which may
differ from project to project:

SHE policies
Applicable standards, legislation, and guidelines to be adopted
Commitments to government approvals and project licences
SHE objectives
Allocation of responsibilities and authorities
Details of the interface between the client and the contractor
Specific procedures, methods, and work instructions to be applied
Risk assessments
Safety awareness promotions
Personal protective equipment provision and rules
Rehabilitation procedures to encourage an early return to work
Transport safety
Occupational health and hygiene arrangements, including, but not limited to respiratory and
hearing protection, alcohol and drug policies, health assessments, smoking, and first aid
Monitoring of employee exposure to occupational stressors as identified in the risk
Safety meeting schedules
Management of subcontractors client/agent requires the same from subcontractors as it
does from contractors
Training and competence regarding SHE
Incident reporting, investigation, and recording
Audit, review, and management feedback
Letter of good standing Workmens Commissioner (Compulsory)
Legal appointments
Medical examinations for all employees (will be required at award stage and prior to
commencement of work)
Working at Heights Certificates (will be required at award stage and prior to commencement
of work.
SHE personnel presence on site (IS NOT APPLICABLE)
Crisis and emergency response arrangements
Maintenance, inspection, and testing of construction vehicles, machinery, equipment and
Working hours compliance with Labour Relations/Basic Conditions of
Employment Act
The SHE plan shall be submitted to the client for review and approval and, once accepted,
shall not be amended without prior consultation and acceptance by the client.

c) General Programme Details of a SHE Plan

A SHE plan must be approved at least one month prior to commencement of work. The SHE
plan is to be assessed by the OU Senior Advisor: SHE prior to work commencing and preferably
prior to site establishment.

A health and safety agreement with reference to section 37(2) of the OHS Act must be signed
between Eskom and the contractor.

Please support those who must provide input pertaining to SHE by encouraging those who
submit Purchase Requests to provide specific details, so that SHE requirements can be
addressed from the outset: Project description/detailed scope of work: the works information
should contain a scope of work, which in summary provides the extent of the works and
deliverables on the project. Attached or referred to in this, further detail is required to define the
works, for example, the bill of quantities, specifications, standards, drawings, procedures,
processes, information requirements, etc. Any risks associated with the design, technology used,
or its constructability that an experienced contractor could not reasonably anticipate, known to
the project engineer or other representatives of the employer/client, are to be conveyed in the
works information or as defined in the minutes of the clarification or negotiation meeting. The
nature of construction activities involved: reference to the contracts/other contractual
documentation (works information) where the exact detail is contained.

In conclusion Eskom has called into existence a Contractor Safety Management Section that is aimed
specifically at assisting contractors in improving their Safety performance. In this regard a Contractor
Occupational Health and Safety Workgroup have been established and a Peaking employee has been
appointed as a permanent member of this workgroup. Contractor OHS Management Section, in
collaboration with the Contractor Safety Workgroup, will prepare a guideline health and safety
specification document that stipulates the minimum health and safety requirements to be met by
contractors and to ensure universal standardisation across Eskom in order to prevent conflicting and
contradictory stipulations across the organisation. Contractor OHS Management Section will support and
introduce integrated management systems for smaller and emerging contractors and encourage
compliance with, and certification to, OHSAS 18001. In the interim, adherence to the aforementioned
requirements is required by all involved in contracts and projects.
