Singapore introduces tighter safety requirements for new rail and road projects.

Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has introduced tighter safety requirements for new rail and road projects.

Behaviour based programme

Contractors will now need to have in place a Behaviour Based Safety Programme where employers have to proactively correct unsafe behaviour.

They will also be required to reinforce safe working attitudes among workers to cultivate a good safety culture.

Future projects affected

The Thomson Line rail network will be the first project affected by the tighter regulations. The requirements will have to be spelt out in future contracts.

The LTA is also altering the Safety Performance Scheme, which awards bonuses of up to S$1.25 million to contractors with a respectable safety record on a project.

Bigger bonuses will be awarded in order to motivate higher standards.
