The Act has changed - You can now claim.

The Occupational Health and Safety Act was updated in 2014. It now includes protection for workers on building sites. It states that:

- All workers must be provided with adequate resources to do their work safely and without harm to their health.

- Information identifying any inherent and workplace hazards must be given to all workers. This includes advice of any known hazards prior to and during their work.

- This information must be available in the Health and Safety file for the property

If construction/maintenance workers are injured on site the Owner, Property Manager and others can be held civilly liable if they have failed to comply with the Act. This applies to all buildings except single story residential properties that are not rented out.

Register Your Claim

I am a building construction/maintenance worker and I want to claim for injuries/damages in terms of the OHSA Act.

Once the injury has been reported to us and if we agree to pursue your claim, then the legal process will commence.

We can only consider claims where the actual or proposed Workmen's Compensation COID or Personal Accident claim settlement is a minimum of R80 000 or the injury results in a major pay scale reduction and happened less than 3 years ago.

I have been injured in the workplace and have received or I am in the process of a Workmen's Compensation and or Personal Accident claim for an amount in excess of R80 000.

I want IMPI to get any information that they require on my behalf to pursue a claim on my behalf against the Property Manager, Property Owner, or other party.

Any claim if agreed to be taken up by IMPI and attorneys for me will be subject to a claims facilitation fee and a contingency fee. An agreement will need to be signed by me prior to the commencement of the claim.

I confirm that the above answers and information provided in this form are correct:YesNo

1 injury is 1 too many

The aim of Impi is to create far better awareness and compliance with the Act and a safe and healthier working built environment in South Africa.
