bizSAFE AND ENTERPRISES


Introduction to bizSAFE


bizSAFE is a programme launched by the WSH Council to assist Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) build up their workplace safety and health capabilities. It provides a systematic approach to help SMEs progress, from top management demonstrating their commitment towards WSH, to acquiring risk management (RM) and WSH management system capabilities. In the process, participating SMEs gained recognition and reaped the benefits of having a comprehensive WSH system in place.

           

There are five levels in the bizSAFE programme, starting from Level 1 which is aimed at securing top management’s commitment to prioritising and establishing WSH as a key corporate policy. It recognises that without the drive and commitment of top management, the importance of WSH would be overlooked.

 

To move on to Level 2, the enterprise must appoint and train a RM champion in-house to identify hazards, evaluate risks and implement control measures. bizSAFE Level 3 will require the enterprise to fully implement the RM Plan.

 

To obtain Level 4 recognition, the company must appoint and train a WSH Management System champion to develop and implement the WSH system in the company. To reach Level 5 or bizSAFE Star level, the company must engage an independent third party certification company to certify that its WSH Management System meets SS506 or its equivalent.

WSH is a key priority in the marine industry and a major focus area of ASMI. The Association plays an active role in promoting WSH to the marine industry.



bizSAFE Makes Business Sense

“Many companies realise that WSH risks are part of that enterprise risks…” Mr Lee Tzu Yang, Chairman of WSH Council at bizSAFE Convention 2014

Loss of employee’s output due to injury or diseases will slow down productivity. An effective safety and health management system can reduce injuries, illnesses and their associated costs, such as medical expenses, employee’s injury compensation, additional manpower cost for covering lost time, etc. Hence it makes good business sense to invest in a workplace safety and health (WSH) management system.


Helping SMEs in Building Safety and Health Risk Management Capability

In 2007 the WSH Council launched the national bizSAFE programme to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) build capability in managing safety and health risks. This initiative utilises a five-step programme which progressively builds the capability of companies in managing WSH risks. The programme also acknowledges companies’ WSH efforts through a certification programme. Since its inception, bizSAFE has attracted more than 19,400 companies which recognise the value in having WSH risk management capability.

Value of bizSAFE Certification

bizSAFE adopts a top-down approach where top management of companies attend a half-day workshop to embark on their bizSAFE journey (bizSAFE Level 1). The 2013 bizSAFE perception survey1, conducted by WSH Institute, revealed that management staff of bizSAFE Enterprises demonstrated greater involvement and commitment towards WSH by attending WSH meetings, monitoring companies’ WSH performance and setting WSH targets. This suggested that involving top management from the beginning of the bizSAFE certification made a difference in driving changes within the company.

When a company progresses to bizSAFE Level 3, its risk management plan would be implemented and audited. The survey showed that more bizSAFE Enterprises were aware of the safety and health risks at their workplaces and involved their employees in risk assessment process. Based on the employees’ perspective, the findings also suggested that bizSAFE certified companies had better WSH practices and programmes in place, such as having reward systems to recognise good WSH practices.

Almost 9 out of 10 companies that had engaged bizSAFE Enterprises found them to have better safety and health management and thus preferred to continue to engage bizSAFE certified companies for future projects. About two-thirds of them also indicated willingness to pay more to engage bizSAFE Enterprises. The findings implied that bizSAFE certification fostered more business opportunities and built rapport between companies that believed in having capability to manage WSH risks.

The bizSAFE evaluation study concluded that bizSAFE helped improve companies’ safety and health through creating a greater level of awareness of, better management of WSH risks, and a stronger commitment towards WSH. bizSAFE certification is also valued among like-minded companies that understand having an effective safety and health management system makes good business sense.
