Construction sites of Samsung C&T in Singapore have been selected as winners of six categories at the 2020 Annual SHE Award Convention hosted by the Singapore Land & Transport Authority.
The Singapore authority has held a safety competition for infrastructure sites under construction every year. Samsung C&T was recognized this time for its safety management capabilities by producing a number of water sites this year.
The T307 subway construction site has been selected as the winner of three awards, including the Best Safety Award, the No-Disaster Site Award, and the Business Health Award. The T307 site also won the best safety award last year.
In particular, the T307 site was selected as the site of the Workplace Health Award, which was introduced for the first time this year, in recognition of providing individual health care kits for the safety of COVID 19-related workers and leading the prevention activities of COVID 19.
In addition to the T307 site, the T313 subway site won two awards and the N106 underground road site won the safety innovation category.
An official of Samsung C&T said that the company has made various efforts to ensure that safety is naturally recognized as a culture of the field at home and abroad. It introduced a communication-type safety culture in which all workers participate, not one-way instructions centered on managers.
Samsung C&T introduced the LMRA (Last Minute Risk Assessment) program in Singapore and Hong Kong, allowing workers themselves to determine whether to proceed with the day's work by determining their own work readiness and risks, as in Korea.
