Safety@Work Creative Awards 2010

Jointly organized by the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Council and Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd (ST Engineering) in collaboration with Ministry of Manpower (MOM), the Safety@Work Creative Awards showcases local students’ creative talents in advocating the importance of safety at the workplace.

Accidents at work (especially in factories and heavy industries) affect not only workers, but their families, employers and society at large. Yet, with good safety habits, work-related accidents can be avoided. This competition aims to promote safety at work among the employees, general public and encourage everyone to adopt a safety mindset.

The theme for next year’s competition is Safety@Work, with specific focus on Working with Machines. Working with Machines can be translated into potential hazards encountered while handling cranes, forklifts and logistic transport vehicles such as prime movers (exclude transport of workers). The students’ creative can leverage on prevention or safety in this area such as:

* Hazards from crane operation involve falling of objects, struck by moving objects and toppling of crane due to overloading

* Hazards from forklift operation involve overloading of goods resulting in toppling of goods or forklift, speeding, using forklift as the incorrect equipment to reach high areas, workers crushed in-between objects, fatigue from driving long hours and failure to belt up

* Hazards from driving logistics vehicles involve speeding, falling objects from vehicles, overloading of goods, fatigue from driving long hours, workers crushed in-between vehicles and failure to belt up.



The Safety@Work Creative Awards comprise two categories: Digital Animation and Poster Design. Photography and 3D treatment can be used for the poster design. For each category, there is also a Judges’ Choice where the winners will win a two-month internship with a reputable design or animation agency as well as a cash prize.

For both categories, participants are strongly encouraged to adopt a celebratory, witty and/or positive treatment of the theme. Winning entries will be reproduced for displays at industry premises and facilities for safety training purposes.
