Slips and Trips Evaluation Programme
Ministry of Manpower has developed a targeted intervention, the Slips and Trips Evaluation Programme (STEP) to increase awareness of slips, trips and falls (STF) hazards and assist companies to manage these hazards to prevent workplace injuries.
EQS Asia is the MOM appointed contractor for the STEP pilot. Our appointed WSH professionals will conduct site visit to selected participating companies to identify and evaluate scientifically all possible STF risks at the workplace and provide practical guidance in the implementation of control measures. A STF self-help kit consisting of anti-slip mat sample, free standing floor 'Caution" signage, banding straps and slip resistant tapes will be provided at the end of the evaluation visit. The STF self-help kit will help participating companies to implement STF control measures.
The targeted industries are wholesale and retail trade, metal working, logistics, transportation and accommodation and food services. 200 SMEs from these industries will be invited to take part in the STEP pilot from June 2015.
