bizSAFE Level 3: Making Our Staff Our Priority

10 June 2016 – bizSAFE is a five-step programme that assists companies to build up their Workplace and Health Safety (WHS) capabilities so that they can achieve quantum improvements in safety and health standards at the workplace.

Ascenz is committed to improve our WHS capabilities to the highest level attainable. Starting from attending a bizSAFE workshop for CEO and top management as an entry to bizSAFE level 1 status, we then had to nominate a RM Champion to attend a bizSAFE course on RM and chart out the RM Implementation Plan for the company in order to be upgraded to level 2.

bizSAFE level 3 is built on the basis of levels 1 and 2, where Ascenz had to engage an MOM-Approved WSH auditor to assess the implementation of Risk Management (RM) in the enterprise.

On top of that, all workplaces covered under the Workplace Safety and Health Act (WSHA) are required to conduct risk assessment for every work activity and process carried out at their workplaces. Workplaces that have achieved bizSAFE Level 3 would have their RM implementation. This is an important step towards complying with the requirements in the WSHA and its subsidiary legislation.

Putting our employees first is a great priority for us to keep employee satisfaction and engagement high, so that customers and partners will benefit from good working relationships and environment standards we set for Ascenz.
