The Singapore Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council is the latest high profile organisation to commit its support to the inaugural LEEA Lifting & Rigging Conference Asia, which takes place at the Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium on Outram Road, 23-24 June 2015.
The WSH Council comprises 18 leaders from the major industries (including construction, manufacturing, marine industries, petrochemicals, and logistics), the government, unions as well as professionals from the legal, insurance, and academic fields. It works closely with the Singapore Ministry of Manpower and other government agencies, the industry, unions, and professional associations to develop strategies to raise workplace safety and health standards in Singapore.
The new high-level conference will be opened by the Ministry of Manpower and combines two days of presentations and networking for lifting industry professionals working with overhead cranes, hoists and rigging equipment in onshore, offshore and marine applications. The event also boasts a tabletop exhibition that will be open to all attendees during breakfast, coffee and lunch breaks.
As the event continues to attract high profile supporters, the Singapore Institution of Safety Officers (SISO) has also signed up as a supporting organisation. SISO is a professional organisation providing representation, promotion, and support for members engaged in the practice of workplace safety and health towards the protection of people, property, and the environment.
Users and providers of overhead cranes, hoists and rigging equipment in onshore, offshore and marine applications have signed up to attend from A Star Testing & Inspections PTE Ltd, PT Akura Bina Citra, Alpha Testing Services, W H Brennan, Sea and Land Technologies, National Oilwell Varco PTE Ltd and PPL Shipyard PTE Ltd, to highlight just a few from a cross-section of the demographic.
Presentations will be delivered by Mick Hoyle, crane, rigging and lifting specialist at ExxonMobile; Simon Chan, managing director subsidiary Singapore, at Stahl CraneSystems; Daniel Hall, technical director, CEA Engineering Consult Co Ltd; Raymond Wat, regional general manager at the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF); and many more.
