New ACOP video to aid top executives understand their WSH duties

18 Jul 2023 Announcements

The WSH Council has produced a video summarising key objectives and principles of the Code of Practice on Chief Executives’ and Board of Directors’ WSH Duties (ACOP). The ACOP was developed in October 2022 to provide clarity for top executives on their roles and duties relating to workplace safety and health.  The video condenses the objectives and principles of the ACOP, making it easier to understand and share. Chief Executives and Board Directors may attend the Top Executive WSH Programme for a more in-depth induction.

The video lists resources that supports the ACOP measures:
