Abstract More needs to be done to help Singapore achieve the new target to reduce work fatality rate to 1.8 per 100,000 workers by 2018. At each level - workers, supervisors and employers - efforts need to be put in to raise the abilities at the workplace to keep themselves and their colleagues safe. To effect this, the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council has developed a strategy paper entitled "Building WSH Competencies in Singapore", focusing on two main areas: equipping stakeholders with the right skills and capabilities; building strong supporting institutions to guide the identification and development of such skills and capabilities.
