The business is aware of any sites on its properties that have historical , archaeological, cultural or spiritual importance

What does this mean?

  • Businesses must be aware of any sites of its importance on its properties.
  • This can be done by:
    • Reviewing the lists of registered world and country specific heritage sites
    • Consultation with local communities regarding sites which may not be registered such as burial grounds, graves and rock art. 
  • Businesses need to ensure that these sites are protected and respected by employees and guests.  This can be done by awareness-raising as well as clear signage demarcating these areas.
