Both sides also stand to gain from reduced downtime due to accidents or costs incurred because of safety lapses," she added. Both Mr Ng and Mrs Teo said the idea arises from discussions between committee and stakeholders like employers, unions, professional associations, safety officers and workers from different industries on how workplaces can be safer and healthier.

Mr Ng, who chairs the committee, said it will be launching public consultation via the website of government feedback unit REACH in August.
Mrs Teo said that the efforts of these companies and individuals have ensured that overworkers go home safely each day.
