Event Details

The Ministry of Manpower has gazetted a new code of practice which spells out the duties of company CEOs and directors on workplace safety and health (WSH), and reinforces their accountability for accidents at work. Effective from 31 October 2022, the new code of practice (COP) applies to companies in all industries, even those that have no manual work and little risk of physical injury, covering also the mental well-being of workers.

In conjunction with AAIS Industry Safety Week, this webinar features Mr Christopher Koh, General Manager of the WSH Council, who will be giving a keynote on the principles of the new COP and details on systems and culture to be implemented by directors to show full compliance with the WSH Act 2006. This will be followed by an insightful presentation on 'A Data-Driven Risk-Based Approach to WSH Management' by subject-matter expert Mr Lim Sui Soon. This promising approach encourages organizations to analyse the key causal factors of incidents (of all types) based on WSH data and focus mitigating efforts on high-risk factors.

Register by 16 November 2022, 3.00 pm, to gain access to this webinar (on MS Teams).
