Safety Awareness Centre
Keppel Land, with the support of its local Vietnamese partners, Hung Phu, Resco, Sowatco, Tan Truong, and
Tien Phuoc, has set up Ho Chi Minh City's first Safety Awareness Centre.
The integrated safety hub will provide training to raise the safety standards among its workforce,
the majority of whom are from its contractors. All workers will attend mandatory safety training before they are allowed to work onsite.

Manned by certified safety officers, the Centre covers all aspects of training with special focus on height safety for high impact risk activities, as well as safety in specialised areas including welding, pipe fitting, and scaffolding. The Centre comprises two classrooms, a safety journey hall, a scaffolding training area, and training zones built to simulate the work environment with additional training on site based on actual site conditions
As of November 2015, over 18,500 workers have undergone training since the opening of the Safety Awareness Centre in 2011.
