Keppel comes out tops at WSH Awards 2015

Keppel Group has clinched 35 awards at this year's Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Awards, organised by the Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSHC) and Ministry of Manpower (MOM), Singapore. It is the highest number of awards won by a single organisation this year.

Of the 35 awards, Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) bagged 31 awards under the Safety and Health Award Recognition for Projects (SHARP) category for its exemplary safety performance as well as good safety and health management systems.

Keppel Shipyard also clinched the WSH Innovation Award with the Coupler Repair Workbench. The winning project team developed a jig to help to lock the coupler in place, thus reducing physical contact that workers have with the coupler and impact wrench, thereby minimising risks of injury.

In addition, Mr Ayyaperumal Tamizharasan, 46, from Keppel Singmarine, was conferred the Supervisor Award for his exemplary performance in taking care of workers under his charge by improving the safety and health levels at the workplace.

For their strong WSH management systems, Keppel DHCS and Keppel Singmarine garnered the WSH Performance (Silver) Awards. This is the fifth consecutive year that Keppel DHCS, a subsidiary of Keppel Infrastructure, has clinched this award for its district cooling systems (DCS) plant operations and Engineering, Procurement and Construction project to provide DCS services to MediaCorp's new campus at Mediapolis@one-north.

Mr R K Jaggi, General Manager, Group Health, Safety and Environment, Keppel Corporation, said, "At Keppel, safety is not only a top priority but more importantly a core value. Across all levels of the Company, we instil the mindset that safety is everyone's business and encourage everyone to look out for one another. Through various platforms such as training programmes, leadership courses, promotion of safety innovation, workshops, campaigns as well as feedback platforms, we strive to inculcate a robust safety culture at Keppel's yards, projects, plants, warehouses and construction sites in Singapore and overseas.

"We are very encouraged by the WSHC's recognition of our sustained safety efforts, which spurs us to continue to push forward in our quest for an incident-free workplace. Beyond awards and recognition from the industry, our greatest reward is seeing everyone return home safely at the end of every work day."

The WSH Awards is an annual awards ceremony organised by WSHC and supported by MOM to recognise organisations that have displayed excellent safety and health performance through the implementation of sound safety and health management systems.

The Keppel Group has participated in the WSH Awards since it began in 2006. Other than the 35 awards garnered this year, the Group won 39 last year, the highest number of awards ever received by a single organisation, and 32 in 2013.

Keppel's safety efforts are guided by the Keppel WSH Strategy 2018 introduced in 2010, in line with the WSH 2018 Strategy adopted by WSHC and MOM. The Group strives to strengthen its safety culture by focusing on four key aspects across its global operations, namely: having an integrated WSH framework, implementing an effective management system, promoting safety ownership and enhancing partnerships across its operations through various initiatives.
