Workplace Safety & Health Council

Workplace Safety & Health Council

The Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council was formed on 1 April 2008. The WSHC is an industry-led Statutory Body that is based in Singapore. It is a step-up from its precursor, the Workplace Safety and Health Advisory Committee (WSHAC) formed in September 2005. The WSHC is endowed with statutory powers and hence, would be well placed to lead or partner with the various industry sectors in Singapore through the engagement and capability building efforts.

The WSHC comprises 18 leaders from the major industry sectors (including construction, manufacturing, marine industries, petrochemicals and logistics), the Government, unions and professionals from the legal, insurance and academic fields.

Under the WSHC, seven industry committees, two taskforces and two workgroups have been formed to address the specific WSH challenges in their respective sectors:

  • Construction and Landscape Committee
  • Healthcare Committee
  • Logistics and Transport Committee
  • Marine Industries Committee
  • Metalworking and Manufacturing Committee
  • Chemical Industries Committee
  • Hospitality & Entertainment Industries Committee
  • Crane Safety Taskforce
  • Work at Height Safety Taskforce
  • Insurance Workgroup
  • Facilities Management Workgroup

Famous quotes containing the words council, health, safety and/or workplace:

    I haven’t seen so much tippy-toeing around since the last time I went to the ballet. When members of the arts community were asked this week about one of their biggest benefactors, Philip Morris, and its requests that they lobby the New York City Council on the company’s behalf, the pas de deux of self- justification was so painstakingly choreographed that it constituted a performance all by itself.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    Pride can go without domestics, without fine clothes, can live in a house with two rooms, can eat potato, purslain, beans, lyed corn, can work on the soil, can travel afoot, can talk with poor men, or sit silent well contented with fine saloons. But vanity costs money, labor, horses, men, women, health and peace, and is still nothing at last; a long way leading nowhere.—Only one drawback; proud people are intolerably selfish, and the vain are gentle and giving.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Once women begin to question the inevitability of their subordination and to reject the conventions formerly associated with it, they can no longer retreat to the safety of those conventions. The woman who rejects the stereotype of feminine weakness and dependence can no longer find much comfort in the cliché that all men are beasts. She has no choice except to believe, on the contrary, that men are human beings, and she finds it hard to forgive them when they act like animals.
    Christopher Lasch (b. 1932)

    They want to play at being mothers. So let them. Expressing tenderness in their own way will not prevent girls from enjoying a successful career in the future; indeed, the ability to nurture is as valuable a skill in the workplace as the ability to lead.
    Anne Roiphe (20th century)
