Health & Safety

It’s not just the personal growth and emotional well–being of our workforce that is of concern to us. Physical safety is paramount.  We understand the importance of health and safety risks and strive to implement measures to reduce, or even better, avoid these risks. Stringent safety and loss control measures are enforced across all our building sites.

A full–time OHS Manager and our own Safety Management System, ensures that we continue to meet the Occupational Health Safety Act & construction regulations promulgated. Our safety officers valued input, training and inspections, not only helps ensure a safer working environment, but also gives peace-of-mind and the necessary guidance to our clients and professional team.

A clean and tidy construction site not only instills a sense of pride in the work on hand, but also helps to create a safer environment in which to work. 

The company always employs experienced people on site; people who have enough experience to identify and report any possible safety risks. 

The company’s high regard for occupational health & safety is reflected in the large number of safety awards it has received over the years. 



Training

Ongoing training has always been a corner stone of our commitment to quality and to the people who will ensure the continued growth and success of our company into the future. Effective training contributes to both personal growth and quality workmanship. It helps attract like–minded employees and keeps our quality–conscious clients returning.

In-house training done by the OHS Manager & regular revisions, are made to keep employees up to date with requirements as stipulated by law.

Today, Isipani Construction (Pty) Ltd, provides extensive in-house training to Site Agents, Project Managers, Foremen and Artisans through on–the–job training and mentorship programmes. In addition, employees are also encouraged to attend courses provided by the Boland College and the MBA in Paarl and Rondebosch.

Our office and senior site personnel regularly attend seminars and other courses to familiarize themselves with current trends. These include computer, financial, Green Building, tax and contract law courses. We also employ Technikon students as junior Supervisors and - Quantity Surveyors.

As part of an Exchange Program, with PXL Tech, we also host 2-3 Belgian Students every year.
It forms part of their final year practical experience.


Corporate Social Investment

Our day–to–day operations depend on the people from the communities in which we operate. We are firmly committed to empowering the members of these communities by generating employment and transferring skills to local tradesmen.

Over the years the company had identified various créches, day–care centres, youth groups and an AIDS orphanage to help out according to their individual needs. Donations may range from emergency food parcels, to blankets or soccer kits. The programme is widely supported by both office and site staff members. It is through the Itisa Committee that most of this work takes place.
