Safety is everyone’s responsibility, starting from the top management down to each individual worker in an organisation.
bizSAFE is an initiative by the Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and the Workplace Safety & Health Council (WSHC) to assist companies to set direction on how safe practices should be implemented, practised, documented and improved on a continuing basis.
bizSAFE is not a mandatory requirement. It is an accreditation under the Workplace Safety & Health Council (WSHC) aiming to assist organisations to raise their safety standards which varies across various companies. Hence bizSAFE comprises four communities:
- Most common bizSAFE community. It mostly consists of SMEs that are accredited with a level of recognition upon their achieving a certain level of safety standard. There are five levels of recognition to progress through, from bizSAFE Level 1, 2, 3, 4 and up to bizSAFE Star.
- Most common for larger organisations with a few contractors under them. The bizSAFE Partners are encouraged to bring their contractors (generally SMEs) onboard to be bizSAFE Enterprises.
- Companies that have shown excellence in their Workplace Safety & Health Management Systems and practices. These companies will mentor the bizSAFE Enterprises and bizSAFE Partners and share their methods of achieving the safety standards.
