Falls from height has been one of the top contributors to workplace fatalities in Singapore this year. Based on preliminary investigations of these accidents, many were found to have inadequate or no basic safety and health control measures in place. 

Close to 800 participants attended the Target Zero Falls Forum to learn the importance of fall prevention and how they can mitigate work at height risks through Behavioural Based Safety Programme, as well as gain insights from recent accidents’ findings. The forum also imparted lessons on STF prevention.

The Forum also launched the Target Zero Falls Campaign that highlighted four key actions for the industry. Find out how you can participate in the Campaign to address work at height risks and download resources for work at height.
