There have been calls on the Minister of Employment and Labour, Thulas Nxesi, from stakeholders representing more than 130 cross-sectional bodies to withdraw Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases draft regulations.
“In particular we are alarmed by the recent regulations published by the commissioner that we believe are ultra vires, irrational, unnecessary and, if implemented, have the potential to damage the rights of workers, harm medical service providers and impact employers negatively,” the group was quoted by Times Live.

If your line manager is unable to assist with your injury at work, consult your health and safety department. If you still not getting joy from them, escalate straight to the HR executive! @skhumbi @thomasmsengana #ThomasAndSkhumba

I am a safety officer and there is a WCL 2 FORM you complete when you are injured at work. It is important to report incident immediately or before the end of shift. In return the the injured will receive a medical report, which will indicate whether they are #ThomasAndSkhumba
