WSH Improvement Programme
Unfortunately for some companies, they would fall under the “Business Under Surveillance” programme also known as BUS programme in short.
These are three factors that will attribute to companies falling under this category:-
- Fatal Accidents
- Poor WSH management (e.g. poor site conditions)
- Accumulated demerit points
For these companies, their names are publicly shared on the ministry of manpower website which directly affects their businesses reputation and future business opportunities. They would undergo two phases, “assessment” and “surveillance” with the need to update Ministry of Manpower’s Occupational Safety and Health Division on a regular basis. Companies that have demonstrated significant improvement to their WSH standards would then be allowed to exit the programme.
Do not allow your company to fall under BUS programme as it would greatly affect the businesses reputation as mentioned. Read on more to find out what we can do to prevent this.
In order to advocate and instill Workplace Safety and Health (WSH), companies often engage auditors to uncover gaps and then fill them with the appropriate action. However, WSH isn’t an easy game of just having proper procedure and process. WSH encompasses of the former, the mindset, the right practice and realization of the consequences of incorrect practices.
QE Safety has had success stories with our existing clients on improving their condition of WSH. WSH improvement programme was then created to value add our existing offerings to our clients.
