Mr Tan Swee Yiow, President of REDAS, highlighted the measures that the BE sector and developers have implemented, such as incorporating Design for Safety (DfS), introducing safety as part of procurement policies and harnessing technology and incentive schemes to enhance WSH outcomes.
Guest of Honour at the Forum, Mr Tan Kiat How, Senior Minister of State for National Development, shared the need for safer work sites, despite improvements made during the Heightened Safety Period. He highlighted three ways the government has partnered with industry stakeholders and taken the lead in implementing those measures:
1. Extending the safety disqualification framework to more parties, including sub-contractors involved in a project, and for smaller value projects;
2. Assigning greater weightage to safety when evaluating tenders and introducing a bonus scheme for larger projects; and
3. Encouraging contractors to leverage technology to enhance safety outcomes and increase productivity.
