    bizSAFE  (Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) related Certification)

    OPUS attained bizSAFE Level 3 Status as of 8th December 2020.

    bizSAFE is a five-step programme which assists companies in building up capabilities in addressing workplace safety, health and security. Since September 2017, the programme has incorporated SGSecure elements to help companies put in place measures to manage potential terror threats as well.

    OPUS has in place a framework which provides a systematic approach to reviewing of all workplace related hazards and their potential risks, risk assessment and risk control in the company's operations. These activities are expected to decrease the frequency of incidents which lead to injuries or ill health, and also reduce the impact of such incidents IF these do occur.
