Safety, Health, Environment, Risk and Quality (SHERQ) Management

SHERQ is a crucial part of any modern construction site, with an increase in awareness and legislation there is a growing emphasis on more than just safety. SAFCEC has met these changes by evolving its SHERQ support function to assist members in all matters relating to SHERQ. With dedicated SHERQ advisors SAFCEC offers a National support service to members in the form of site visits, site audits, assistance in system development and incident investigations. The SAFCEC advisors are driven by member mandate and adapt to meet member requirements where they can.

The SAFCEC SHERQ function operates as a single point of contact into the Civils industry on all matters relating to SHERQ. As such it has been instrumental in legislation development, best practice development and other tripartite initiatives such as the Construction Health and Safety Accord.

The SAFCEC SHERQ department also takes advantage of a mutually beneficial relationship with the Federated Employers Mutual Association (FEM) through an annual safety grant as well as collaboration on various health and safety initiatives for the betterment of health and safety in the Civil sector.

SAFCEC has representation at the Advisory Council for Occupational Health and Safety (ACOHS) under sections 3-6 of the OSH Act by an appointment by the Minister of the Department of Labour. Through this representation SAFCEC members can have first hand access to information and have input into legislation changes that may affect their operations.   

SAFCEC members have the following SHERQ benefits:

  • Mandate in all legislative and best practice developments
  • Access to first had feedback on legislative and best practice developments
  • Facilitated knowledge and idea sharing through the various SHERQ forums
  • Support in SHERQ compliance and systems development
  • Support in dealing with industry stakeholders, such as the Department of Labour
  • SAFCEC SHERQ material including induction booklets; induction DVD’s and OSH Acts
