Workplace Safety & Health Management

Under the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Act, employers, self-employed and principals (including contractors and sub-contractors) are required to manage risks at work while employees must adhere to safe work practices. WSH is about preventing work-related injuries and occupational diseases (ODs), and creating a work environment that is safe and healthy. Good WSH management can improve work productivity and efficiency and this, in turn, will enhance business competitiveness and benefit the business.

The framework adopted by Singapore to improve WSH standards and safety outcomes is based on three key principles:

  1. Reducing risks at source by requiring all stakeholders to eliminate or minimise the risks they create;
  2. Engendering greater industry ownership of WSH outcomes; and
  3. Preventing accidents through higher penalties for poor safety management.

Under the Singapore WSH (Risk Management) Regulations 2006, the owner or occupier of all public or industrial buildings are required to implement Risk Management System that involves:

  • Establishing a Risk Management team
  • Carry out Risk Assessments (RA) for all functions
  • Developing & Implementing Safe Work Procedures (SWP)
  • Implementing control measures
  • Communication to all stakeholders
