DPR’s APAC Entity Wins Prestigious Safety Award

Singapore, May 10, 2023 DPR Construction Asia Pacific Pte Ltd, part of DPR Construction’s family of companies, has received a prestigious Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Silver Award for outstanding commitment to health and safety in the workplace.

“From our offices in Singapore and Seoul to the project sites we manage, great work cannot be great unless we make sure that the health and safety of everyone comes first,” said Richard Kimber, DPR’s managing director for Asia Pacific operations. “I am proud of our entire team for this recognition and we know that this important work is never over.”

DPR’s Asia Pacific operations bring global, technical and construction expertise to the region. A BCA-registered contractor, DPR specializes in the commercial, advanced technology and life sciences markets as well as healthcare and higher education.

The RoSPA Health and Safety Awards are among the largest occupational health and safety awards in the world, with nearly 2,000 entries every year, covering nearly 50 countries and a reach of over seven million employees. The program recognizes organizations’ commitments to continuous improvement in the prevention of accidents and illness at work, looking at entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.

“We have worked hard to instill a culture of safety in all our work, from our offices to the project sites we lead,” said Rizal Sawari, DPR’s environmental health and safety leader in Singapore. “Safety is a value at DPR and this award is validation that our project leaders are working every day to make sure that everyone on a DPR site is able to do their work without injury.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Achievements Director, said: “Accidents at work and work-related ill health don’t just have huge financial implications or cause major disruption they significantly impact an individual’s quality of life. That’s why good safety performance deserves to be recognized and rewarded.”
