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.
WSH (Confined Spaces) Regulations
Work in confined spaces is one of the hazardous activities identified as it presents a myriad of dangers to the workers. Accidents which occur in confined spaces can result in multiple injuries and fatalities. Given the unfavorable climate of frequent occurrence of serious accidents involving confined spaces and the limitation in legislative controls offered, MOM enacted a new and dedicated set of Regulations governing confined space safety in November 2009. This provides the necessary legislative and enforcement oversight on such works.
