The launch was attended by personnel from the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN), Professors from the National University of Singapore, President, Senior Vice Presidents, Vice Presidents, Directors, Managers, Executives of ST Marine as well as other Strategic Business Areas (SBAs) of ST Engineering. At the event, deserving staff of ST Marine and the resident contractors were given awards for their participation and contributions towards maintain Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) improvements in the organisation.
The campaign showcases ST Marine’s commitment to WSH and EHS journey through the use of technology. Additional sets of interactive educational exhibits & product demonstration, which aim to raise the level of awareness of WSH amongst employees and customers, have been set up.
During the welcome address by Mr Ng Sing Chan (President of ST Marine), he shared that ST Marine’s annual EHS Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) have always been set and ST Marine’s Vision ZERO initiatives are continually driven by exploring new leading indicators and leveraging on technology to manage & achieve better EHS compliances. ST Marine has been actively participating in various EHS innovation challenges at various levels – the sector level (Kaizen), corporate level (ST Engineering’s BE EHSi convention), Marine industry level (ASMI WSHi Convention) as well as National level (WSH WSHi Award).
A total of 11 exhibits were displayed at Benoi Yard, Tuas Yard and Naval Bases:

Let us pledge that “Safety Starts with Me – Vision ZERO is my GOAL”.
