Workplace fatality rate declines in 1H23

Construction and manufacturing sectors are the biggest contributors to fatal and major injuries.

The annualised fatality rate per 100,000 workers dropped by half to 0.8 in 1H23, data from the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) showed.

The 1H23 fatality rate per 100,000 workers was also lower than the 1H22 and 2H22 record of 1.6 and 1.3, respectively.

“The improvements reflect the positive outcomes from the Heightened Safety Period (HSP), which ended on 31 May 2023,” said MOM.

“This also places Singapore back on track towards meeting our WSH2028 aspirations of a fatality rate below 1.0 per 100,000 workers,” added MOM.
