Workplace safety code of practice on directors unveiled: Tan 

It will boost workplace safety and health standards (WSH).

Minister for Manpower Tan See Leng said the government will unveil a code of practice (COP) and Board of Directors’ WSH Duties, which seeks to distil management principles and safe company practices.

In a speech, he stressed that for a WSH culture to grow, the chief executive and company directors should implement WSH improvements as they control over budget and priority.

The COP will be based into these practices:

• Ensure that WSH is integrated into business decisions and have clear roles and 

responsibilities of a Chief Executive and individual members of the Board of Directors in 

leading WSH;

• Continuously build a strong WSH culture, set the tone and demonstrate visible 

leadership in embodying and communicating effective WSH standards;

• Ensure that WSH management systems are effective and reviewed regularly; and

• Empower workers to be actively engaged in WSH.

More on this topic will be discussed during Plenary 4 of The Singapore WSH Conference 2022.

Where to invest your millions in real estate
Amongst locations, realtors suggest the Core Central Region.   Individuals seeking shelter in the real estate market amidst the rising inflation must consider three things before deciding where to invest their millions in.   George Tan, managing director of Savills Digital Residential Marketing, said one of these factors is location.    Tan said buyers should consider areas which are highly demanded and well located—easy access to prestigious or international schools, MRT, malls and food and beverage (F&B) establishments. All these will contribute to good rental demand.   PropNex realtor, Andy Lim, echoed this, adding that buyers should particularly invest in properties within one kilometre of the prestigious schools.
