Always Looking Out For Danger: Man Sends Alerts To MOM On Workplace Safety Lapses

THE NEW PAPER - Like most shutterbugs, Mr Gursharen Singh has a sharp eye, but he is not interested in taking pretty pictures.

His subject of interest may seem mundane, usually focusing on worksites and featuring scaffoldings, ladders and platforms.

But take a closer look at his photographs, and you will notice workers dicing with danger by not observing proper workplace safety practices.

When Mr Singh, 39, spots safety lapses at worksites and public places, he will snap a picture and send it to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM)via its crowdsourcing app, SNAP@MOM.

The smartphone app, which was launched in 2012, encourages the public to report workplace safety and health (WSH) lapses that they come across in Singapore. (See report, below.)

 
 

Mr Singh's contribution of at least 15 reports on various WSH lapses in the four years since the app's launch makes him one of MOM's top danger-spotters.
