Coinciding with World Safety Day (28th April), the Department of Labour is pleased to announce the result of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) assessment that was conducted in the month of March & April, 2023. The top three companies were awarded with Certificate of Achievement and those companies who have secured 70% and above were awarded with Certificate of Recognition with following categories: the Excellent OHS Practice Award to 31 enterprises (score of 80% and above); and the Good OHS Practice Award to 17 enterprises (score of 70% and above). These certificates were awarded mainly to acknowledge the company’s comprehensive OHS management system.
The Department evaluates enterprises with OHS committees on an annual basis to ensure the safe practice in the workplace. The major goal of the assessment is to increase compliance by promoting education, raising public awareness, and honoring businesses with effective occupational health and safety procedures.
Last but not the least, the Department would like to congratulate the 48 enterprises for adopting good OHS practices and we hope that this evaluation system will encourage the enterprise to further improve.
