More than 200 industry partners from hotels, restaurants and catering services attended the WSH Forum for Food and Beverage Industry – Safe Working in Kitchens at the JTC Summit auditorium on 20 November 2017. Organised by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), the Forum aimed to raise WSH awareness for the Food and Beverage sector and showcase best practices by the industry.
In his opening address, Director of OSH Specialist Department for MOM, Er Mohd Ismadi, highlighted the importance of identifying safety and health hazards in the kitchens, including the hazards of exposure to airborne contaminants, such as carbon monoxide (CO). More effort is needed to raise the awareness of CO hazard among the kitchen staff and manage emergency situations should they arise.
MOM shared on the findings and recommendations from its targeted enforcement operation conducted on commercial kitchens. Speakers from NEA, SCDF and HPB, also shared on regulatory updates to the industry as well as tips on workplace health promotion for workers.
