1. WSH MANUAL FOR MARINE INDUSTRIES
1.1 WSH Manual for Marine Industries
(joint publication by ASMI, WSH Council and MOM)
The Association of Singapore Marine Industries (ASMI) and Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council collaborated in the review of the ASMI's Safety, Health and Environmental Management Manual. This manual which served as guidelines for the preparation of a company's safety, health and environmental management system was first released by ASMI in 1999.
A review of the Manual was initiated in 2008 and the revised Marine Industries Workplace Safety and Health Manual is ready for use as a guide for the marine industry.
The Manual highlights the important aspects of safety, health and environmental protection to assist companies in planning, implementing and auditing management systems in order to satisfy company, legal and social obligations, and to assist companies to put in place safe work practices and management systems to enhance their safety performance.

1.2 WSH Case Studies Booklet
The Workplace Safety and Health (Marine Industries) Committee has compiled a Case Studies Booklet on accident cases in the marine industry. The Booklet contains a compilation of 15 accident cases. The underlying causes of these accidents have been carefully examined through root-cause analysis.
Members may find this Booklet useful for use in training of workers or in toolbox meetings. This Case Studies Booklet is available for download here.
