Public consultation for WSH Guide on Video Surveillance Systems

31 Jul 2023 Announcements

Following the exit from the Heightened Safety Period, the Ministry of Manpower announced that from June 2024, all construction sites, with a project value of $5 million and above, will be required to install a video surveillance system (VSS) at worksites where there are high-risk work activities.
A VSS is a network of cameras, monitors or display units, and recorders used for the purpose of surveillance, identification of WSH risks, facilitation of incident investigation and corrective actions, and deterring unsafe workplace behaviours.
The WSH Council, together with the Ministry of Manpower and industry stakeholders, have prepared a Guide detailing the scope of high-risk work activities and recommended locations where VSS should be installed, and how it can be deployed to improve WSH.
We invite industry members to share your feedback on the draft “WSH Guide on Video Surveillance Systems” before it is finalised and published.  Please email the completed public consultation form to by 28 August 2023.
Your views and insights will help us shape the future of workplace safety and health in Singapore.
