Accident Sharing And Prevention (ASAP) Programme

The purpose of the SISO-WSHC Safety Accident Sharing And Prevention (ASAP) Programme is to raise awareness of preventing major hazards in our workplace. Workplace fatalities are on the rise this year. (49 deaths as of 29 August 2016).

These deaths were preventable.

Who Can Participate?

Anyone who wants to prevent fatalities in the workplace can participate in the Safety Accident Sharing And Prevention (ASAP) Programme. In past years, participants in similar programmes included commercial construction companies of all sizes, residential construction contractors, sub- and independent contractors, general industry employers, government participants, unions, employer's trade associations, institutes, worker interest organizations, and safety equipment manufacturers.

What is a Safety ASAP?

A Safety ASAP is a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety. This program focuses on Hazards associated with fatalities and reinforces the importance of “Safety Prevention".

ASAP Goals

The goal is to reach out to the workforce with timely safety pointers. If we meet this goal, we will have touched more than half of the workers in the concerned industry.

Our Partners

SISO and the WSHC will be partnering with key groups to assist with this effort.  We look forward to partnering with you!

How to Conduct a Safety ASAP and FAQ's

Companies can conduct Safety Accident Sharing And Prevention (ASAP) by taking a break to have a toolbox talk or another safety activity such as conducting safety equipment inspections, developing work plans, or discussing job specific hazards. Managers are encouraged to plan ASAP that works best for their workplace anytime during the May 2-6, 2016. A useful tool is the WSHC’s Toolbox Meeting Aid for Supervisor (here).  This tool helps guide Supervisors in conduct effective tool box meetings.
