The Practical OHSAct

The planned series of e-books by have been moved to a new location after the author of the series, Rudy D. Maritz, cancelled the publishing agreement with Sheqafrica Corporate Services (Pty)Ltd.

You don’t make money staring at a lap top screen for emails after you had one golf day or seen one client. You work your butt off for three to five years and then you get to the point where you can sit and wait for incoming emails. So its not ‘it’ that does not work. It’s you that don’t.

The Practical OHS Act is now located on its own server at and are being updated in the prelude to the amendments coming in 2022.
