Work Safety Committee

Established on January 11, 2011, the Work Safety Committee (WSC) is committed to building partnerships between member companies engaged in the construction and mining sectors and Chinese government agencies responsible for work safety standards and regulations. Focusing its efforts on promoting the use of Aerial Working Platforms (AWP) since its founding, the Committee has collaborated with China’s State Administration of Work Safety (SAWS), Ministry of Housing and Urban Rural Development (MOHURD), and China Occupational Safety & Health Association (COSHA) on a number of events and dialogues. To celebrate its one-year anniversary, the Work Safety Committee hosted a seminar on Chinese aerial work safety. Director General of China Occupational Safety and Health Association Ren Shukui gave the keynote speech, and Kleber Machello from Terex Brazil office highlighted the progress, evolution and regulations of work-at-height best practices in Brazil.
