Online bite-sized workplace safety courses to be piloted for migrant workers

The Straits Times, Singapore, 29 May 2022 - A pilot initiative offering online bite-sized courses on workplace safety for migrant workers was announced on Sunday (May 29) by the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and Migrant Workers' Centre (MWC).

The initiative is meant to uphold higher workplace safety and health standards among migrant workers here.

Workers can take the courses at their own pace during their free time to learn and refresh their knowledge. More details will be announced at a later date, said NTUC.
