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:

    Parental attitudes have greater correlation with pupil achievement than material home circumstances or variations in school and classroom organization, instructional materials, and particular teaching practices.
    —Children and Their Primary Schools, vol. 1, ch. 3, Central Advisory Council for Education, London (1967)

    To thee, fair Freedom! I retire
    From flattery, cards, and dice, and din:
    Nor art thou found in mansions higher
    Than the low cot, or humble inn.

    ‘Tis here with boundless pow’r I reign;
    And ev’ry health which I begin
    Converts dull port to bright champagne;
    Such Freedom crowns it, at an inn.
    William Shenstone (1714–1763)

    [As teenager], the trauma of near-misses and almost- consequences usually brings us to our senses. We finally come down someplace between our parents’ safety advice, which underestimates our ability, and our own unreasonable disregard for safety, which is our childlike wish for invulnerability. Our definition of acceptable risk becomes a product of our own experience.
    Roger Gould (20th century)

    Most fathers will admit that having children does not change perceptibly the way they are treated or perceived in the workplace, even if their wives work. Everyone at his workplace assumes that she will take on the responsibilities of the children and the home, even if she too is in the office all day.
    Anne C. Weisberg (20th century)
