The Council for the Built Environment (CBE) is a statutory body that was established in 2000, to oversee six Built Environment Professional Councils (Architecture, Engineering, Project and Construction Management, Quantity Surveying, Landscape Architecture and Property Valuation) for the purpose of instilling good conduct and best practice within the professions; transforming the professions; and advising the South African government on built environment related issues.
The CBE wishes to express its concern at the recent fatal and other incidents in the construction sector.
The CBE works closely with allied stakeholders such as the Department of Labour and the Built Environment Professional Councils (BEPCs) who share common objectives of protecting public safety. It is a mandatory requirement of the Occupational Health and Safety Act for any workplace incident to be reported to, and subsequently investigated by, the Department of Labour.
