Webinar on vehicular safety highlights importance of keeping our workers in the logistics and transport industry safe
The Singapore Logistics Association (SLA) organised a WSH webinar aimed at heightening awareness on vehicular safety on 27 October 2021. The event, which was supported by the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council, was well attended by over 300 business owners, operations managers, safety officers and HR managers.
Upon welcoming participants to the webinar, Mr Chan Hsien Hung, SLA’s Council Member, said that the session was aimed at better equipping the industry with the knowledge to prevent and minimise the occurrence of incidents. Noting that vehicular accidents were the top cause of workplace deaths during the first half of 2021, he was concerned over the recent fatal accidents.
During the webinar, the Ministry of Manpower shared statistics and common contraventions within the industry, as well as the lessons learnt from past accident case studies. Participants also learnt that the future of the sector could include greater adoption of technology such as data analytics, automated guided vehicles, and radio-frequency identification or biometrics to ensure safer equipment and practices.
SMRT Corporation Ltd then presented its ‘3E Framework’ (Education, Engagement and Enforcement) and ‘6S Methodology’ (Sort, Set-in-order, Shine, Standardise, Sustain and Safety) that drive continual effort towards zero occurrence in safety and security. It also shared some of its recent forklift enhancements to improve safety in such operations.
Solo Pte Ltd and TNT Surveillance Pte Ltd then shared how the safety of drivers could be enhanced by adopting technologies such as the Advanced Driver Assistance System and Driver Status Monitoring System.
