WSH legislation requires various stakeholders in workplaces to “ensure” or “require” that safety and health standards are met. In order to achieve so, it is important to understand the provisions in the legislation, their intents and applications. This workshop will cover the WSH (Work at Heights) Regulations and the WSH (Confined Spaces) Regulations. It will be led by Mr Lee Kah Bee, an ex-MOM officer who was in-charge of overseeing and drafting of WSH legislation. He will go through the Regulations and explain the provisions, their intents and applications. At the same time, he will highlight the common safety lapses uncovered by MOM inspectors during their inspections and special operations. He will also share some past accident cases related to the regulations. Some common misconceptions and key court decisions will also be discussed. Participants will be doing case studies based on simulated WSH issues and applying what they had learnt in the workshop.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
WSH Practitioners, Engineers, Business owners, contractors, and anyone who is interested in understanding more about the WSH Regulations
