Woh Hup WSHE Campaign 2016
Woh Hup held its annual WSHE Campaign on 22 June 2016 at Coco Palms project site in conjunction with the launch of the Construction Safety Promotion Month by the Singapore Contractors Association Ltd (SCAL) and Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSHC) National WSH Campaign. 6 other companies also participated in the launch of Safety Promotion Campaign.
A crowd of over 600 workers, 50 guests and management staff were present for the event. The event kick started with a cultural dance performance followed by an opening address by Mr Eugene Yong, Woh Hup’s Executive Director. He also announced the launch of our pilot project for this year – safe use of handphone device while at work. This is to reinforce the fact that there are more hazards and risks at work sites, and that workers should be more careful at all times. Everyone should adopt safe practices – to stop walking and observe surrounding prior to making or answering calls.
Mr Yang Yong Hong, Deputy WSHE Manager led the audience with the recital of the Safety Pledge to show our commitment to safety. Before guests and staff proceed for lunch, an awards presentation segment was put in place to recognize the outstanding efforts of supervisors and workers from various projects who are more safety conscious. This award encourages workers to be more mindful and observe safety procedures at workplace. Woh Hup had also specially prepared an array of activity booths, performances and delicious lunch for the workers to reward and encourage them to continue working safely on site.
