Preface:

This regulation aims to prevent/ reduce risks/damages and preserve lives & property that might result from non-compliance with safety requirements. This can be achieved by monitoring and applying fines on contractors, whether individual or organisation, for the best interest of the two parties. It also serves as a form of information to contractors of the consequences of what might happen if they neglect or breach the safety requirements and define the applicable fines resulting from their action within STC premises/sites.
