Policy change for work-related accidents

Gathering 50 top regional chief HR and senior business leaders at a three-day business retreat forum, the exclusive HR Innovation Leaders' Summit will happen from September 9-11. Get involved.

Beginning the first quarter of next year, companies will have to report all work-related traffic accidents to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) within 10 days.

This change will be reflected in the Workplace Safety and Health report, which MOM publishes every six months.

Channel News Asia reported the new regulation will help the ministry and companies better manage their mobile manpower, plan better driving routes and maintain high safety levels for their staff.

The MOM is also hoping the data collected will better equip companies with information to identify common work-place safety lapses and the frequency of work-related traffic accidents.

The changes were announced by Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Education and Manpower Hawazi Daipi yesterday.

He said employers must also be responsible for ensuring their drivers’ safety, and can do so by introducing monetary incentives for safe driving, implementing mandatory breaks and conducting daily vehicle inspections.
