Keppel’s Safety Plus Programme wins award

The International Association of Dredging Companies yesterday presented the safety award to Keppel FELS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine, for their Safety Plus Programme and National WSH Vision 2028.


The award was virtually handed over during the IADC Annual General Meeting by René Kolman, the secretary general of IADC and IADC President Frank Verhoeven to Mr Tan Leong Peng – Managing Director at Keppel FELS.

“Our Safety Awards are designed to encourage the development of safety skills in the workplace and to reward people and companies who demonstrate a commitment to safety awareness in the course of their profession. The awards, presented each year, recognise the exceptional safety performance demonstrated by a particular project, programme, procedure, product, vessel, team or employee(s),” said René Kolman, Secretary General of IADC.


Anchored in Keppel Offshore & Marine’s Safety Plus Programme and Singapore’s National WSH Vision 2028, Keppel FELS continues to consistently improve and enhance its existing Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) management systems.

The company invests in building HSE competence and capabilities through training, outreach activities and empowerment of every employee to intervene and stop unsafe acts. Keppel FELS adopts a set of ten life-saving rules and carries out an assessment of high impact risk activities (HIRA) prior to the execution of works.
