GS Engineering & Construction announced on December 14 that it established a safety innovation school at the T301 project site to build a public transportation vehicle depot near Changi International Airport in the southeast of Singapore and started operation in earnest.

With a total area of 700 square meters, the safety innovation school in Singapore consist of one lecture room and 16 experience facilities. At the 16 experience facilities, it will provide training programs to prevent and deal with accidents that can occur in actual construction sites, including equipment stricture, fall, suffocation and electric shock.
Currently, GS E&C offer the training sessions to managers and workers at the T301 site three times a week, and plans to expand the program to workers at other sites in Singapore in the future.
GS E&C Singapore regional head Roh Jae-ho said, “The company is proactively dealing with safety accidents which are on the increase in construction sites at Singapore with a sense of responsibility. GS E&C plans to continuously pay more attention to the safety management at construction sites at home and abroad in the future.”
