IEQ-11 HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

Technical Clarification

Kenya Occupational Safety and Health Act, No. 15 of 2007

Technical Clarification Number 

IEQ-11-T-OB1-1412

Guidance
2016-06-06

For projects in Kenya, the GBCSA confirm that:

- The Kenya Occupational Safety and Health Act, No. 15 of 2007 is the equivalent of the South African Occupational Health and Safety Act (OH&S) for the purposes of credit IEQ-11: Hazardous Materials, in terms of:

    - Recognition/definition of Hazardous Materials

    - Disposal of Hazardous Materials

 

However, the Kenya Occupational Safety and Health Act, No. 15 of 2007 does not define what a "comprehensive hazardous material survey'' should entail. Projects are therefore to undertake the 'comprehensive hazardous material survey' in accordance with the South African Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Act.
