Falls from height is among the top contributors to workplace fatalities. In 2022, eight workers fell to their death and never made it home.  Work at height safety is an important consideration across many industries. With adequate preparation and risk management, we can prevent the next fall from happening.  

This year’s Work at Heights Symposium, themed “Building Resilience to Heightened Risks”, aims to raise companies’ awareness of risks and hazards associated with working at height. Find out more about emerging trends in Singapore and how they will impact the future of work at height and learn ways to mitigate work at height risks through process improvement and technology adoption in the workplace. 

3 SDU points will be awarded.
