Yellow Ribbon & Open Door
Open Door is for people with disabilities to be hired under the Fair Employment Principle of Tripartite Guidelines on Fair Employment Practices supported and organised by Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF). To provide Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) an equal chance to be recruited on the basis of merit (i.e. skills, experience or ability to perform the job). People with disabilities have needs which are both similar and different from those of other able-bodied persons. Some can lead normal lives with some adjustments, while others need a higher level of care and assistance. Super Galvanising is concern for the welfare of PWDs and would like to open up its doors to hiring PWDs. Our selection criterion is based on Tripartite Guidelines: as long as they are able to perform the key requirements of the job, employers should consider disabled applicants/employees on a consistent and fair basis.

The Straits Times School Pocket Money FundSuper Galvanising contributed $100,000 to the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund to contribute to the cause of alleviating the financial burden faced by parents in providing for their children's education. At the same time the funds will help children who are already facing difficulties in remaining in school to stay on.

5 December, 2008. Structural steel is well recognised as an excellent construction material. In an era where more emphasis is placed on the reusability and recyclability of materials, steel certainly fit the bill. Steel can be recycled repeatedly without any degradation in performance or properties. Amongst all construction material, steel has one of the highest strength to weight ratio.
- A Guide on Corrosion Protection for Steel Structures.
BCA Sustainable Construction SeriesSteel can span long distances offering larger open space and greater design flexibility. It is fast to construct and highly buildable and this minimizes any possible impact to the surroundings during construction.
To ensure that steel structures offer optimal performance during their life span, careful consideration on corrosion protection and re-protection are important. Earlier this year, CA published A Guide on Fire Protection and Performance-based Fire Engineering. This Guide, fifth in the Sustainable Construction series, is developed to address concerns on corrosion protection. It provides useful information on the application of different corrosion protection methods, the inspection and maintenance aspects of protected steel structures and detailing on how to minimize corrosion.
This Guide is the product of a close partnership between public sector agencies, private sector organisations and institutions of higher learning. I would like to put on record my appreciation to the Working Committee for contributing towards this Guide. I am confident that the industry will find this Guide useful.
