At Kay Lim, we believe that we have a part to play in shaping the social and environmental impact of construction. We do so by carrying out our business operations in a responsible manner and contributing regularly to our community.

Workplace Safety and Health
Our people are the most important asset of our business. To ensure their safety and wellbeing, we implement comprehensive workplace safety and health practices across all projects and set high safety requirements.

Besides conducting safety induction courses for new workers on site, toolbox meetings and risk assessment briefings are conducted every morning to raise safety awareness and cultivate a safety-first mindset among our workers. We also send our employees and subcontractors for regular safety training.  

Environment and Community
We have also been awarded the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green and Gracious Builder Excellent Award for adopting environmentally-friendly and gracious practices.

Where possible, the Group reduces, reuses and recycles our construction and office materials and uses environmentally-friendly products. We also construct our buildings to be energy-efficient. To address public concerns on construction, we adopt good communication practices with residents living near our worksites and minimise inconvenience caused due to our operations.

Lastly, we have been making donations to non-profit organisations such as temples, providing residential community services, and participating in the BCA-Industry Built Environment Undergraduate Scholarship/Sponsorship programmes.

Business Performance In WSH:

Construction is a dynamic and complex trade. To maintain our competitive edge, we invest unsparingly in technology and training our people, of which the most prioritized arena is the safety health occupational responsibility.

Apart from our day-to-day updates and reinforcement of safety related information via official websites, news articles and conference papers pinned on our notice boards, we also carry out detailed presentations using related posters during our tool box meetings. On top of that, we constantly and consistently engage specialised trainers to provide relevant trainings for our staffs, especially for high risk and difficult jobs.

As a habitual practice before the commencement of every project, our safety team will perform comprehensive briefings for all relevant stakeholders, so as to prevent potential hazards and thus minimize the rate of incidents at site. To ensure the competency and adequacy of our safety team to supervise every project effectively, it is compulsory for them to attend every safety committee meeting, so as to understand and keep themselves abreast of all safety precautions. Meanwhile, safety code of practice updates and issues and challenges encounted in every site are shared and discussed during our periodic safety committee meetings, aiding in prevention of similar problems at other sites and thus increase safety and work efficiency.         

We have also adopted the Total WSH program, organized by WSH Council, in view of creating a safe and healthy workplace environment for all employees, and therefore enhancing the well-being of everyone. On top of that, we have put significant focus on “ON the job and OFF the job” trainings, totaling S$199,806.19 for the year 2018 for external trainings costs. In addition, as part of our company’s improvement and employee empowerment effort, we have invested S$365,000 in 2018 on various constructive items, such as:
