HSE and MOM Singapore sign up to share expertise

Ministry of Manpower (MOM) Singapore and Great Britain’s Health and Safety Executive signed agreement on closer ties and shared learning.

A formal Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been agreed, marking a commitment between the two organisations in a partnership to share knowledge, experience and facilities in pursuit of excellence in work-related health and safety and to support economic growth in both countries. The agreement provides a framework for the UK and Singapore to share scientific and regulatory knowledge, experience and good practice and develop joint initiatives to promote excellence.

HSE’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr Richard Judge, said: “Between our two countries, we have a wealth of valuable research, technology and science underpinning our regulatory systems. By working together, we can combine our world-class knowledge and learning and ensure both countries can take the lead in developing sustainable, healthy and safe working environments, as our economies evolve and new technologies develop.”

Ministry of Manpower works closely with the Workplace Safety and Health Council and the Workplace Safety and Health Institute to improve WSH standards in Singapore.
