Synopsis:

The occupational safety and health (OSH) is often viewed as a profession that follows very paper-driven approach, with much emphasis on operational control and process compliance. Many feel that this approach has failed in reducing the fatality rate in recent years.

This is one of the reasons why the “Safety Culture” initiative has emerged with a focus on improving the OSH practices in the general culture of an organization.

The seminar will present the ways in enhancing safety culture in an orgnisation through leadership; two way communications; staff engagement and accountability; training and learning culture; and good OSH behavior.

The presentation will supplement with a number of good and bad practice photographs taken among the other part of the world and to demonstrate the safety culture in different regions.

Our Construction Inspectorate takes an important role in linking the Consultants and Contractors in delivering the project on time, within budgets and safety plus quality. The presentation will be summarized the need for better coordination, cooperation and collaboration among Clients, Consultants, Contractors and the Construction Inspectorate in our engineering profession.
