    (a) before carrying out that work, notify the provincial director in writing of the construction work if it includes -
    (i) the demolition of a structure exceeding a height of 3 meters; or
    (ii) the use of explosives to perform construction work; or

    (2) The notification to the provincial director contemplated in subregulation (1) must be done on the form similar to Annexure A to these Regulations.

    (3) A principal contractor shall ensure that a copy of the completed form contemplated in subregulation (2) is kept on site for inspection by an inspector, client, client's agent or employee.

    As you might have notice this is a direct quote of what Construction Regulation 3 says, the Principal Contractor shall do the notification to the Department of Labour of their intend to do construction work.

    As many of you might or might not know the current CR are under review by the technical committee and they have proposed that the Client will be required to complete the notification of construction work and inform DOL in the future.

    Keep your eyes on this section, as we will update and infom you should these change be made.
