Safe Use of Machineries and Combustible Dust

07 Sep 2023 Announcements

From June 2024, manufacturers, suppliers and users of industrial machineries and combustible dust are required to comply with additional standards based on the recommendations of the Tuas Explosion Inquiry Committee. This is part of the Ministry of Manpower’s new SAFE measures to strengthen ownership at the sectoral level.

These new requirements ensure companies are aware of potential hazards so that they can better manage the risks posed by the diversity of machines and substances used in the industry.

To further support the industry, the WSH Council has developed a poster on the “6 Basic WSH Rules for Handling Combustible Dust” to assist the industry on the dos and don’ts when handling combustible dust.
