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
• 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.
