HR & SHE

Human Resources

Human Resource Management (HRM, or simply HR) is a function in our organisation designed to maximize employee performance in service of our employer’s strategic objectives. HR is primarily concerned with how people are managed within Allem Brothers, focusing on policies and systems. The HR department are responsible for a number of activities, including employee recruitment, training and development, performance appraisal, and rewarding (e.g., managing pay and benefit systems). HR is also concerned with industrial relations, that is, the balancing of organizational practices with regulations arising from collective bargaining and governmental laws.

Health and Safety

The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) were instituted in 1994 in South Africa. The OHSA gives workers some rights in health and safety in the workplace. Allem Brothers has setup safety representatives and safety committees in the workplace.

The regulations in the Act give guidelines on things such as toilets, change rooms, first aid, drinking water, washing facilities, protective clothing, machinery, stacking and packing, ladders, fire, ventilation, lighting, temperature, noise and asbestos. Out safety Inspectors have wide powers in terms of the Act to make sure Allem Brothers’ workforce follow the Act.
