On 3–5 June 2019, the School conducted a training workshop on ‘Leadership in Occupational Health’ with 29 senior-management-level participants from various hospitals, preventive centres and national institutes in Vietnam.

This workshop aims to provide participants with competencies and skills in the planning, implementation and evaluation of health programmes, and acts as the second part of a course that was conducted on 10–12 April in Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa Province, Vietnam with the same participants.

The course is part of the Public Health in Vietnam programme, under the TFI-NUS-Viet Nam project between Temasek Foundation International (TFI), SSHSPH, and the Health Environment Management Agency (HEMA) of Vietnam’s Ministry of Health.

Associate Professor Norbert Wagner kicked off the June workshop with a lecture on ‘Workplace Exposures and their Health Impacts on Vietnam’. This was followed by an Introduction to Singapore’s Occupational Health and Safety Ecosystem by Ms Ong Peh Woon, Senior Assistant Director, Total Workplace Safety and Health Branch, Workplace Safety and Health Council.

The participants visited Keppel Shipyard in the afternoon to learn more about their occupational health programmes, and ended off the day with a dinner hosted by the School.

The next two days of the course were packed with lectures and site visits, such as to Woodlands Industrial Park, Singapore General Hospital and Ng Teng Fong Hospital, to understand their safety and health programmes.

Over the course of the workshop, participants were tasked to plan and present an occupational health programme to implement back in their workplaces in Vietnam.
