The LTA ASAC Award 2022 this year was a most memorable and motivating for HSB as we clinched the Contractor Challenge Shield.
This event organized by Land Transport Authority (LTA) recognizes organizations with contracts under LTA for their outstanding workplace safety, health and environment (WSHE) management and practices. The event was held at Singapore EXPO with the Minister of Transport S Iswaran as the guest of honor.
The theme for this year was Innovation and Sustainability for Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) Excellence, and our project team from RC118 showcased the HSB Guidebook App, Augmented Reality (AR) Environmental training module and managing operational SHE through an e-platform and wireless crane watcher technology. The team also presented on the Major Challenges faced in the RC118 Project, the adoption of BIM and various innovative technologies used to overcome the project challenges, and showcased the beam launching operation adopting BIM and innovative construction solutions to achieve SHE excellence and sustainability.
HSB won a total of 6 awards during ASAC 2022:
