The administration inspection was held on May 24. In that Inspection, it was uncovered that 50 students were absent from school after it was found that they were sick due to the bat infection

The school was prohibited based on the following: – Grade R 1,4,5,6 and 7 had bats on the classroom roofs, which pose a danger to health and safety ad may cause sickness or death. 

“Educators alleged that snakes are killed every week as the bats attract them in the classrooms,” the department said.

Health and safety are the most prominent part of the business. We do not leave anything to chance. Employers make sure that, at any given time, they comply with OHS legislation. When they are not sure, they must call us for advocacy so we can assist them in getting their house in order.

Inspector Reckson Tshitshivheli: Inspections our day to day business. When we face any life-threatening situations, we choose to close the building. We applaud our inspectors who do not compromise the health and safety of people and encourage them to continue their jobs in order to mitigate non-compliance.
