Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong launched the 2013 National Workplace Safety and Health Campaign this week. Speaking at the Asia Centre in the heart of the city, the Prime Minister called for increased efforts to make workplaces accident-free. He was joined by top-level representatives from 37 governmental agencies and made a public commitment to improved Workplace Safety and Health in the public and private sector in a remarkable example of leadership in occupational risk management. The coming year will be seeing many initiatives and awareness raising activities.
