Sembcorp Marine wins marine industry’s first gold award for workplace safety and health performance at annual WSH Awards in Singapore

The Group clinches 19 wins at WSH Awards 2017, including the WSH Innovation Award

Singapore, July 25, 2017: Sembcorp Marine today became the marine industry’s first-ever gold award recipient for Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Performance when its Benoi Yard took top honours at the national WSH Awards 2017.

Sembcorp Marine Benoi Yard outperformed over 40 participants in the same award category, which included silver award winner Sembcorp Marine Tuas Road Yard.

Sembcorp Marine Tanjong Kling Yard also received the prestigious WSH Innovation Award for its ‘Safe Grinding Work Station’, a height-adjustable work station designed to hold pipe elbows of different sizes that helps prevent hand and back injuries during pipe grinding work. 

In total, Sembcorp Marine scored 19 wins at the WSH Awards 2017.

“Our success this year highlights a continuous improvement in WSH management and innovation across Sembcorp Marine yards, and we are especially excited to be the first from the marine industry to win the WSH Performance Gold Award,” said Sembcorp Marine President & CEO Wong Weng Sun.

“Maintaining high safety and health standards at our yards is a daily challenge we cannot fulfil without excellent teamwork from our contractors and customers,” Mr Wong said. “We share the accolades with these partners and thank them for ensuring that we can all enjoy a safe working environment.”

Presented by the WSH Council with support from the Ministry of Manpower, the WSH Awards started in 2006 as an annual recognition for organisations and individuals who had contributed to achieving excellence in workplace safety and health.

The WSH 2017 Awards ceremony took place at the Resorts World Convention Centre this evening.
