WSHC-SCAL Joint Advisory – Call for Safety Time Out & Holiday Advisory
SCAL is deeply concerned and saddened by the spate of fatal accidents recently, with two out of four cases relating to lifting operations.
Together with the WSH Council, we urge all companies to conduct the Safety Time Out (STO) at your respective workplaces to review all work activities and ensure that good WSH practices are adhered to at all times, and in particular, for lifting operations. Please see email link calling for the STO.
Also with the holiday season approaching, SCAL with the WSH Council would like to remind all construction firms to ensure that workplace safety procedures and practices are maintained at all times while employees and workers plan for their long breaks and individuals feeling festive.
The joint advisory from SCAL and WSH Council is attached for your attention. We thank you for your cooperation.
