Understanding Corruption & Offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act
08 August 2019
Singapore adopts a strict zero-tolerance approach towards corruption. While Singapore has done well in our fight against corruption, there is no room for complacency. Corruption in workplaces can potentially damage and severely weaken a company’s reputation, compromise efficiencies and ultimately leave an irremovable stain on the corporate landscape. 

An engagement session was jointly organized by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) and SLA on 05 July 2019 at Trade Association Hub for members and companies in the logistics sector, notably the transport/ warehouse / depot operators to create awareness on the severity of corruption in the industry, to better educate their employees and spot / prevent corruption from happening at their respective workplace. Conducted by Mr Chow Kar Hing – Chief Special Investigator, the interactive session was well attended by some 50 representatives. 

PACT: A Practical Anti-Corruption Guide for Businesses in Singapore

A clean business protects a company and employees from being caught in thorny and compromising situations. As part of the CPIB’s commitment to combat corruption in the private sector, they developed PACT: A Practical Anti-Corruption Guide for Businesses in Singapore to help domestic business owners prevent corruption in their companies.

PACT provides useful facts on corruption in Singapore, an easily-implementable anti-corruption framework, private sector case studies and other useful anti-corruption resources. Download the guide here.

Safe Movement of Oversized Vehicles
05 July 2019
Safe movement of heavy vehicles on public roads cannot be overstated. Oversized heavy vehicles which are used to carry large and heavy cargo too, may slow down traffic and affect road structures. 

The movement of these vehicles is regulated and the oversized vehicle movement (OVM) regime has been put in place to enhance their visibility. Members of SLA participated in a dialogue with the Land Transport Authority on the safe movement of heavy vehicles on public roads at its Bedok Campus on 28 June 2019.  

At a glance …

  • If your vehicle exceeds the width, length or weight requirements, you must apply for an OVM permit. You may also need to engage an auxiliary police escort. 
  • For over-height vehicles, plan your route in advance to ensure that your vehicle height does not exceed the height limit of any road structure along the way. Before moving off, if there is a crane fitted on your lorry, check that it is adequately retracted. 
  • Lorries with cranes must be equipped with an audio warning system to detect if cranes are properly stowed. This is to reduce the risk of collision with overhead road structures.
