New banners focusing on the Look Think Do approach have been put up at the MOM Services Centre outside Halls A and B.
The banners aim to remind workers to be more vigilant of the work environment and take preventive measures to eliminate potential risks before starting work. The banners are part of the publicity initiatives of the WSH Awareness Booster Campaign to raise safety awareness among workers.
Do keep an eye out for it when you are walking at the main foyer of the MOM Services Centre.
The Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council has also developed the “Look Think Do” posters, available in various languages, to remind workers on simple steps they can take to prevent injuries.
