Code of Practice on Chief Executives’ and Board of Directors’ Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Duties

WSHC have launched a Code of Practice (COP) on 19 September 2022 during the National WSH Conference to provide clarity on and strengthen ownership of companies’ Chief Executives and Board of Directors’ WSH duties.

The Code of Practice aims to provide clarity on and strengthen ownership of companies’ Chief Executives’ and Board of Directors’ workplace safety and health (WSH) roles and duties. Company Directors include the Chief Executives or equivalent officers involved in executive decisions as well as activities on policy and decision making related to the business affairs of the company, which are capable of affecting the company as a whole or a substantial part of it. This is regardless of their title and whether he or she is a member of the entity’s Board of Directors.
