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

If youve once taken part in building one, even inadvertently, doesnt its usually latent image reappear like a warning signal whenever youre tempted to join the police, or support any manifestation of Law and Order?”

“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)
