Health and Safety Equipment Supply

In accordance with the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act, every company should have relevant safety equipment on-site to use in the case of an emergency.

Health & Safety Equipment Supply

Emphasising the significance of creating a secure work environment for employees and guests, as well as ensuring contractors follow safe practices, is crucial. Implementing measures like identifying workplace hazards as outlined in Section 8 of the OHS Act 85 of 1993, and providing appropriate safety gear in case of an emergency, are among the methods to guarantee safety.

Some of the H&S equipment that we supply includes:

Fire Equipment

In accordance with SANS 1475 Part 1 & 2, South Africa’s national standard for servicing firefighting equipment such as extinguishers, hose reels, and hydrants, and guided by local by-laws and the OHS Act, all fire equipment must receive annual servicing from a registered and accredited firefighting equipment servicing company.

Emergency Evacuation Plans

SANS 23601 outlines the standards for emergency evacuation plans. These plans should be prominently displayed, easily accessible, and readable to anyone present at the site. They must be securely fixed and located in a place where occupants can familiarise themselves with escape routes.


First Aid kits in the Workplace

According to General Safety Regulation Section 3 (OHS Act 85 of 1993), subsection (2), if a workplace employs more than five employees, the employer must provide access to a First Aid kit or kits close to the workplace, ready for use in treating injured individuals.

Site Safety Signs

Effective communication is essential in fostering a culture of safety in the workplace. One way to communicate is by using Site Safety Signs. As stated in General Safety Regulations 3, subsection 6 (OHS Act 85 of 1993), employers must post a highly visible sign at the workplace indicating the location of First Aid kits and the name of the person in charge of them.

Personal Protective Equipment

The role of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is to safeguard employees from workplace hazards and the possibility of injury. PPE should only be used as a last resort, when other methods of protection are insufficient or not feasible.

Evacuation Chair

An evacuation chair serves the purpose of safely evacuating injured or disabled employees from multi-story buildings during an emergency. The employee is securely fastened in the chair with straps and then transported over flat surfaces using the chair’s 4 wheels.

OHS Act posters

OHS Act Poster Set

Under the OHS Act, companies must display three key posters—OHS Act, Employment Equity Act, and Basic Conditions of Employment Act—where employees can easily see them. We provide A1 sets of these posters and optional aluminium snapper frames for wall mounting and poster protection. It’s advisable to showcase these in high-traffic areas like a canteen for optimal visibility.

Loud & Clear Devices

Employers need reliable methods to alert employees about potential dangers and emergencies requiring evacuation. Loud & Clear Devices provide a practical, cost-effective alternative to complex electrical fire alarms. Highly efficient and user-friendly, these devices, strategically positioned, ensure effective communication within your premises. Absolute Health Services offers seamless replacement once these devices have been utilised.
