Singapore - (1 July 2019) - Sompo Risk Engineering Department, based in the Asia Pacific regional headquarters in Singapore (Sompo Holdings (Asia) Pte. Ltd.), launches a new Work Injury Risk Survey to assist Japanese corporate companies in the manufacturing industry to check their current working condition with a fresh pair of eyes, providing recommendations to prevent work injury, and enhancing work safety and efficiency.
In addition to the Fire and Property Risk Surveys, this new service will focus mainly on machinery operation risks. Sompo’s risk engineers will advise the relevant safety measures, such as safety guard, personal protective equipment, interlock system, etc. in the post-survey reports after assessing the operating risk of the machines and adequacy of the countermeasures. The survey fee will be SGD1,000 per client and expected survey duration will be half a day.
According to statistics from Singapore authorities, the chances of employees suffering from an injury in the course of work are much higher compared to a fire accident, especially in manufacturing industries that involve machine operation. Regardless of the severity, such accidents cause impact to the business, ranging from shortage of manpower to legal liabilities.
Sompo Asia Pacific’s regional Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Yasuhiro Sasanuma said, “Sompo aims to provide the best solutions for our customers. We do believe that the new Work Injury Risk Survey is able to mitigate the risk of industrial accidents by recommending the necessary preventive measures. Sompo Group also provides assessment in other aspects, such as human issue, poor management, working condition upon clients’ requests.”
