7 in 10 businesses have work safety and health technology in place

Companies who have yet to adopt one can tap on the Productivity Solutions Grant.

Seven in 10 companies in Singapore have work safety and health  (WSH) technology in place, Minister for Manpower Tan See Leng revealed.

For the companies that have yet to adopt WSH digital solutions, the minister urged them to tap on the Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG).

As of June 2022, Tan said there have been more than 500 SMEs that have tapped on the PSG to adopt technology solutions that facilitate the improvement of WSH standards at their workplaces.

"Examples of these solutions include the electronic Permit-To-Work (or e-PTW) to control selected high-risk work activities, such as working at height, to ensure safe execution of work on-site, " Tan said in a reply to the Parliament.

Another technology adopted by companies who tapped on the PSG was the Fleet Safety Management solution. 

According to Tan, adoption of this solution results in 93% fewer fatigue episodes by drivers, and 58% fewer potential collisions.

For the two solitons mentioned by Tan, the PSG provides up to 70% grant support, capped at $30,000.
