Key Stakeholders

Developers, main contractors and sub-contractors are key stakeholders who can drive positive WSH outcomes through procurement.

Who are the Stakeholders

Through the procurement process, service buyers engage service providers to supply the manpower or expertise to successfully deliver a construction project. Key stakeholders in the construction industry are:

Main contractors
  - Domestic: Sub-contractors procured by a main contractor.
  - Nominated: Sub-contractors pre-approved by the developer.

For example, main contractors can be both service providers (towards developers) and service buyers (towards domestic sub-contractors).

Why Focus on Procurement

As service buyers, developers and main contractors set the specifications and expectations for the project. By requiring good WSH standards from service providers at the onset, developers can ensure the project is managed safely.

When the project has good WSH performance, service buyers can (non-exhaustive):
Prevent costly WSH rectifications during the construction stage.
Improve contractors’ and employees’ morale for better productivity.
Demonstrate WSH leadership in fulfillment of Principle 2 of the Code of Practice on Chief Executives’ and Board of Directors’ WSH Duties.
Receive recognition for driving positive WSH outcomes, paving the way for long-term success.
