Hospitality SHEQ Program

EXPERT GUIDANCE

The tourism industry contributes around 3% of the South African GDP with more than 14 million international visitors every year. The Hospitality sector forms an integral part of the tourism industry and includes businesses offering accommodation, food and entertainment.

 

When we think health and safety, we immediately think “employees”, but the hospitality sector also faces risks from injury and illness to patrons.

 

Health and safety duties and responsibilities are clearly outlined in Sections 8, 13 and 14 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Act 85 of 1993.
