Demerit Point Scheme (DPS) is part of an on-going effort by Jurong Port to define its role as an occupier and to ensure its compliance with the Workplace, Safety and Health Act 2006 (“WSH Act”). Demerit Point Scheme (DPS), together with several other safety implementations such as training/dialogues/courses, issuance of permits-to-work and safety management system, aims to provide a safe and healthy working environment for all port users.
Under Demerit Point Scheme (DPS), the Port will impose sanctions (demerit points and fines) on non-compliant port users – individuals and/or their employer-companies. Non-complaint port users may face debarment from the port if more than 24 demerit points is accumulated over a 24- month period.
