Keppel has opened a new integrated safety training facility, the Keppel Safety Training Centre, at the company’s shipyard in Tuas, Singapore. The center offers safety training and certification courses in both trade-specific and broad-based skills for its work force across all levels.

The training center is a key element of Keppel’s 2015 safety initiative, through which the company seeks to foster a safety culture and impart relevant safety competencies to its multinational workforce of 14,000 people.

Training modules that are offered at the new facility include core competency, safety leadership and workforce skills qualification courses. The center also provides an e-learning zone and a safety journey hall with multimedia and interactive training stations. It also features a life-size replica of the mid-section of a tanker with various technical training areas to provide hands-on learning.

Core competency and safety leadership development programmes as   well as Workforce Skills Qualifications courses certified by the   Singapore Workforce Development Agency, are some of the key training   modules conducted by qualified, full-time instructors at the Centre.
