SafetyWallet Overview

SafetyWallet offers employers in South Africa a membership programme which encourages and rewards its members for being compliant with:

  • The Occupational health and Safety Act
  • All other relevant Legislation
  • Regulations
  • Standards, and
  • Metropolitan and/or Municipal Bylaws which relate to Occupational Health and Safety within the workplace.

SafetyWallet helps its members understand their level of compliance and, through its partnership with MAKROSAFE and OHS Online, provides members with the necessary tools and support to ensure the improvement of compliance while being rewarded along the way.

Safety Wallet already has more than a thousand members in South Africa and offers employers a plan that suits the member’s business.

Fees are calculated according to the membership circle that the member joins which provides the member with an immediate rewards discount in addition to the audit discount reward. The plans offered with the parameters as specified are as follows:

  • Friend Circle with 1 to 50 employees per branch obtains an immediate membership reward of 25% and an audit discount reward of 80%.
  • Family Circle with 51 to 100 employees per branch obtains an immediate membership reward of 30% with an audit discount reward of 80%.
