Held on 22 November, the bizSAFE Convention 2023 saw the inking of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the WSH Council and five SME Centres to enhance SMEs’ WSH capabilities. Witnessed by Guest of Honour, Mr Zaqy Mohamad, Senior Minister of State for Manpower, the MOU calls for Centres’ Business Advisors to be trained to enhance their WSH knowledge, more publicity of SME-related services and events, and greater dissemination of guidance materials to SMEs.
In his Opening Address, SMS Zaqy highlighted that SME employees accounted for about seven in ten fatal and major injuries in 2022 alone. Despite the challenges faced by SMEs, he urged them to cultivate a robust WSH culture. SMS Zaqy also emphasised that the WSH Council has developed various resources, such as the START Guide for SMEs, to support the SMEs in their WSH journey.
