3 INTRODUCTION This report provides an update of Singapore's workplace safety and health landscape, focusing on workplace injuries and occupational diseases. The report identifies the key sectors that contributed to workplace injuries in the period January to June 2007 and examines the accident profile in terms of type of accidents. The various types of occupational diseases in the major sectors are also examined in this report. The data was provided by the Ministry of Manpower. Information on workplace injuries and occupational diseases are collected from incident reports made by employers, occupiers and medical practitioners in the fulfillment of their obligations under the Workplace Safety and Health (Incident Reporting) Regulations. DATA COVERAGE The types of workplace injuries and occupational diseases covered in the reported statistics include the following: Workplace injuries sustained by employees and resulting in more than 3 consecutive days of medical leave; Workplace injuries sustained by employees and resulting in at least 24 hours of hospitalisation; Workplace accidents resulting in the death of employees, self-employed persons and persons not at work; Workplace accidents resulting in the injury of self-employed persons and persons not at work who have to be taken to the hospital for treatment; Dangerous occurrences listed in the Second Schedule of the Workplace Safety and Health Act; and Occupational diseases listed in the Third Schedule of the Workplace Safety and Health Act. ANALYSIS OF WORKPLACE INJURIES OVERVIEW There were 4,839 workplace injuries 1 (including fatalities) reported to MOM in the first half of 2007, at a halfyearly rate of 245 injuries per 100,000 employees (Table 1 and 2). There were 25 fatalities in January-June 2007, down from 28 in the same period last year. Permanent disablements recorded an almost 7% drop while less severe workplace injuries (involving temporary disablements) saw an increase of about 20%, mainly from sectors that are new to the safety and health reporting regime 2. Table 1: Number of Workplace Injuries and Occupational Diseases, 2006/2007 p (Whole Year) (Jan-Jun) (Jan-Jun) Overall Workplace Injuries 9,261 4,070 4,839 Fatal Permanent Disablement Temporary Disablement 9,031 3,966 4,743 Table 2: Workplace Injury Rate and Occupational Disease Incidence, 2006/2007 p Per 100,000 Employees Overall Workplace Injury Rate Fatal Permanent Disablement Temporary Disablement A workplace injury is any personal injury, diesease (acute) or death resulting from a workplace accident. Please refer to the annex for the types of workplace injuries covered. 2 This refers to the WSH Incident Reporting Regulations which require all workplaces to report work-related accidents even though they are currently not covered under Schedule I of the WSH Act. 3 Workplace Injury Rate = No. of Fatal and Non-Fatal Workplace Injuries No. of Employed Persons X 100,

4 ACCIDENT FREQUENCY RATE The Accident Frequency Rate 4 (AFR) measures how often workplace accidents happen. In the first half of 2007, the overall AFR was higher as compared to the first half of 2006 (Table 3). Table 3: Accident Frequency Rate, 2006/2007 p Per Million Man-hours Worked Sector All Sectors Construction Shipbuilding and Ship Repair (SSR) Manufacturing (excluding SSR) Metalworking Food, Beverages and Tobacco Electronic Products Other Sectors Wholesale and Retail Trade Transport and Storage Hotels and Restaurants Accident Frequency Rate (AFR) = No. of Workplace Accidents Reported X 1,000,000 No. of Man-hours Worked 5 Metalworking sector consists of the following subsectors : Manufacture of basic metal Manufacture of fabricated metal products, except machinery and equipment Manufacture of machinery and equipment Manufacture of electrical machinery and apparatus ACCIDENT SEVERITY RATE The Accident Severity Rate 6 (ASR) measures the productivity lost from workplace injuries based on the number of mandays lost due to workplace accidents. The rate for the first half of 2007 stayed roughly the same as that of the same period in ASR was the highest for construction and manufacturing, with metalworking being the subsector with the highest ASR (Table 4). Table 4: Accident Severity Rate, 2006/2007 p Per Million Man-hours Worked Sector All Sectors Construction Shipbuilding and Ship Repair (SSR) Manufacturing (excluding SSR) Metalworking Food, Beverages and Tobacco Electronic Products Other Sectors Wholesale and Retail Trade Transport and Storage Hotels and Restaurants Accident Severity Rate (ASR) = No. of Mandays Lost To Workplace Accidents X 1,000,000 No. of Man-hours Worked 4 5

5 SECTORAL ANALYSIS FATAL WORKPLACE INJURIES Manufacturing recorded the highest number of workplace fatalities for the period January-June 2007, accounting for 11 of the 25 deaths. This was a big jump as compared to 2 deaths in the same period last year (Table 5). Metalworking and petrochemical were the main contributors to workplace deaths in this sector. A total of 4 fatalities occurred as a result of fire in petrochemical while another 3 fatalities occurred as a result of being struck by falling objects in metalworking (Table 6). PERMANENT DISABLEMENTS Permanent disablements are the more serious type of injuries, involving the complete loss or loss of use of any member/part of a member of the injured victim's body. Examples include the loss of one eye and amputation of an arm or a finger. There were fewer permanent disablements in the first half of 2007 as compared to the same period a year ago (Table 7). Of the 71 permanent disablements reported, about half of the victims (i.e. 35 injuries) were from manufacturing. Its sub-sector, metalworking, alone had 17 such severe injuries. Table 7: Number of Permanent Disablements, Jan-Jun 2006/2007 p Table 5: Workplace Fatalities by Industry, Jan-Jun 2006/2007 p All Sectors Construction Shipbuilding and Ship Repair (SSR) Manufacturing (excluding SSR) Metalworking Petrochemical Other Sectors All Sectors Construction Shipbuilding and Ship Repair (SSR) Manufacturing (excluding SSR) Metalworking Food, Beverages and Tobacco Electronic Products Other Sectors Wholesale and Retail Trade Transport and Storage Hotels and Restaurants Table 6: Workplace Fatalities by Type of Accident, Jan-Jun 2007 p Table 8: Permanent Disablement Rate by Industry, Jan-Jun 2006/2007 p Involves piling activities Involves lifting activity Involves a lift car Involves a lorry Sector Total Fall Struck by falling Caught between Fire or Drowning from or moving object objects exposed heights to heat All Sectors Construction Shipbuilding and Ship Repair (SSR) Manufacturing (excluding SSR) Metalworking Petrochemical 4 4 Other 1 1 Manufacturing Per 100,000 Employees All Sectors Construction Shipbuilding and Ship Repair (SSR) Manufacturing (excluding SSR) Metalworking Food, Beverages and Tobacco Electronic Products Other Sectors Wholesale and Retail Trade Transport and Storage Hotels and Restaurants Other Sectors

6 By accident type, the top contributor to permanent disablements was being caught in or between objects (67%). Close to one-fifth (18%) of the permanent disablements were contributed by stepping on, striking against or struck by objects (Chart 1). The same observation was made across all sectors. Table 10: Temporary Disablement Rate by Industry, 2006/2007 p Per 100,000 Employees Chart 1: Distribution of Permanent Disablements by Type, Jan-Jun 2007 p 71 permanent disablements Other types of accidents 15% All Sectors Construction Shipbuilding and Ship Repair (SSR) Manufacturing (excluding SSR) Metalworking Food, Beverages and Tobacco Electronic Products Other Sectors Wholesale and Retail Trade Transport and Storage Hotels and Restaurants Caught in or between objects 67% TEMPORARY DISABLEMENTS Stepping on, striking against or struck by objects 18% Table 11 shows that at the overall level, the top three accident types 7 leading to temporary disablements were: (a) Step on, strike against or struck by objects (b) Falls (c) Caught in or between objects Among the four major sectors, the number and rate of temporary disablements for the first half of 2007 has increased as compared to the same period last year, with the exception of shipbuilding and ship repair (Table 9 and10). Table 9: Number of Temporary Disablements, 2006/2007 p In shipbuilding and ship repair, construction and manufacturing, the temporary disablements sustained by victims were most likely a result of being struck by something. However, it was falls (predominantly slips and trips) that led to the most injuries in the others sector.

7 ANALYSIS OF OCCUPATIONAL DISEASES Chart 2: Distribution of Occupational Diseases by Type, Jan-Jun 2007 p OVERVIEW For occupational diseases 8, there were 190 confirmed cases in the first half of 2007, a 33% decrease as compared to the same period last year. Table 12: Number of Occupational Diseases, 2006/2007 p (Whole Year) (Jan-Jun) (Jan-Jun) Occupational Diseases Table 13: Occupational Disease Incidence, 2006/2007 p Per 100,000 Employees Occupational Disease Incidence Noise-induced deafness 151 (79.5%) Industrial dermatitis 28 (14.7%) Excessive absorption of chemicals 3 (1.6%) Barotrauma 2 (1.1%) Occupational lung diseases 2 (1.1%) Work-related musculoskeletal disorder 3 (1.6%) Compressed air illness 1 (0.5%) SECTORAL ANALYSIS Table 14: Number of Occupational Dieseases by Sector, Jan-Jun 2007 p Noise-induced deafness (NID) continued to be the leading occupational disease, accounting for four-fifths (79.5%) of the cases confirmed. Industrial dermatitis (ID) ranked second, taking up a share of 14.7% (Chart 2). Most sectors saw fewer confirmed cases of occupational diseases in the first six months of Shipbuilding and ship repair witnessed the largest extent of decline at 59%, as compared to the same period last year (Table 12). Manufacturing was the dominant contributor of occupational diseases among the four broad sectors. Within this sector, the metalworking and transport equipment sub-sectors accounted for close to two-thirds (66%) of its confirmed cases. Number of Confirmed Cases (Whole Year) (Jan-Jun) (Jan-Jun) All Sectors Construction Shipbuilding & Ship Repair (SSR) Manufacturing (excluding SSR) Metalworking Transport Equipment Others An occupational disease is a disease (chronic) contracted as a result of an exposure over a period of time to risk factors arising from work activity. A confirmed case of occupational disease is one where there is definite evidence that the worker suffers from a disease which is related to his occupation..9 No. of Occupational Diseases (i.e. chronic confirmed cases) Occupational Disease Incidence = X 100,000 No. of Employed Persons 10 11
