to be a safety officer, u need to attend a course call safety officer training course or equilvent.. this course is available in ngee ann and singapore poly.. some other place may have but i not sure.. after the course, if u have clocked enough safety programs say 3yrs or 5yrs of safety experience, u may entitled to register with MOM to be a registered safety officer.. only this u can get a better salary..

Yes, you need to register with MOM.

There are currently two polytechnics offering this course, Ngee Ann and Singapore Polytechnicss, Work-place Safety & Health Officer Course. I think it's S$2961. I am sponsored by my company to attend this course, cos we need a registered WSHO in my company. I attended the night classes started last July, had my exams in Nov last year. Just got my results.

I will need to complete 6 assignments and a report this semester, which is from Jan 2007 - Jul 2007. For Diploma holders, we have to work in related safety area in your company for THREE years and apply to be a register WSHO with MOM with your 3 years of "safety" experiences. For Degree holders, you all will need only TWO years of experiences.

But you have to be MENTALLY PREPARED. There is a lot of theories to study and memorise...

I cleared two weeks of leave before my first exams and had to lock myself in my room for the full two weeks to study. I studied till 2 am almost everyday and woke up at 9am the next day to continue studying.

If you intend to go for the course, better hurry up. I heard from the SP lecturers(I am taking it at SP) that they increase the criteria to only allowing Degree holders to register for the course and there may be an entrance test too...

If you really going for the course, and need my summarised notes (which I shared with my classmates too), we can arrange to meet for me to LEND you(must return me WITHOUT any writings on them, ok?? :smile: )

With Workplace Safety and health Act setting up, it will covers more workplaces like shopping centres, hospitals, offices, etc unlike the Factory Act. For those with cert will be sought after. My company just hired one Consultant to help us cope with this new ACt. Come only once fortnightly. I guess u work on your own and be a consultant for a few companies. Easy money but of course heavy responsibilities. But as long u know how to cover yourself, will be good enuff.

Time to visit my HR and ask to sponsor...

Hi there, i notice that safety officer requires some certificate to work in a particular area, anyone can enlighten me on how and whats the requirement?

safety officer course used to be incorporated into the marine offshore engineering course conducted in singapore polytechnic. you may wish to find out more from the sp if you are going for a diploma. alternatively, you may take up the safety coruse from sp or np.

if you are already working, the new regulations on wsho (workplace safety and health officer, the new name under the new act) is that you may need NOT to go thru the local wsho training course. that is only if you can prove that you have credential and credible backgroud and experience as a safety personnel.

that means an us or uk or india safety person can be registered with mom (ministry of manpower) as a registered wsho if he proves to be competent and qualified in term of his training and background.

safety officer in construction site will normally double up as eco (environmental control officer).

safety officer in manufacturing plant will normally double up as fsm (fire safety manager).

safety officer in shipyard will normally double up as safety assessor.

this is a job that requires a lot patience and passion.

good luck.

The market for WSHO will be great for the next couple of years due to increase in industry demand and push by MOM to cut down fatalities. To be in the game for long, constant upgrading is the key. I have been in the safety line for couple of years now. It is an interesting career for we get to learn new things everyday.

Great to see fellow safety officers and supervisors in this forum! May be we can meet up one of these days for a ride or chat too.

Now the safety officer job market is booming...the only way to get big pay jump is to play musical chair and hopping around. In fact my fren ask me want to work in Jurong island contract job - $7K to $9K depend on experience.

My SOTC lecturer always say safety officer is a small community, we should always network amongst ourselves & pass lobang to each other & exchange safety tips also. Because a single safety officer may not know everything.

I agree with you that our field is so wide that one cannot know everything. It is good to network among us to learn and grow professionally :-)

Average years a safety officer will stay with one employer is about 2 to 3 years. Musical chair game is very common especially during this boom.

If u wanna work as safety officer, at least know whats safe whats not.

In my plant i'v seen contractor safety supervisors don't even know what to do during emergencies, don't even know which type of extinguishers to use during diff fire harzards, don't know many other things. haiz.

Sometimes it's common sense.

Was surfing MOM website for some information when I chanced upon this website.

Decided to share to prevent any one of you out there getting "conned" by other schools or institutions (e.g. a private institution offering a similar Safety Officer course somewhere near Tekka Market, I shall not mention names) offering Safety Officer Training Course (SOTC).

I think MOM only recognised the SOTC course from these three school :

i went to this recruitment agency to submit my resume for safety officer jobs. While i am there , i asked them what is the current market salary for safety officers in oil/gas, shipyard, manufacturing etc. He say salary range very wide now.

He told me there is 2 openings, one is a leather sofa factory in defu road, the other is a petrochemical MNC. He also advised me what is expected salary for these 2 jobs based on type of industry & my experience.

I think going thru recruitment agencies has certain advantages like this; you get advice from them , so you dun overprice or underprice yourself accordingly.

1. I heard that the Safety Officers Training Course (SOTC) is "separated" into 4 major areas, e.g. oil/gas, shipyard, etc now... It is NO longer the generalised SOTC that we used to study in SP. Can anyone enlighten on is it true? And if it is true, what are the 4 major areas now??

2. I am considering very hard (in fact, I should say struggling very hard within my heart) to sign up for the Benosh offered by PSB which is a BSc in EHS by Uni of Newcastle in Australia and this degree is also accredited by MOM.

Has anyone here studied (& graduated from) this degree before? Or is anyone going for this course soon?

Those that have graduated. Can I ask how's the course like? I heard it is very difficult to study, am I right??

S$4494...?!?!?! *FaINTzz*

Mine was S$2964 or something like that. I started in July 06, graduated Jul last year.

The old Safety Officer Training Course includes a few industries like construction, shipyard, etc...

I heard the new course is "specialised" into the different industries.

hahaha. maybe u pay more to be a SO den get biger pay earlier? haha.

btw, is it a must to be employed in order to take up the SO course at poly? is there any assignment you
have to do at your own work place that needs to be handed to the lecturers?

but as of 1 March 2008, more places like restaurants, shopping malls, airports, etc2 will be
covered under the safety act as well. not only applies to construction, shipyard and factories.

Yes, during my time, the first 6 months for me were lectures followed by exams for the 3 modules I took within the 6 months.

Then upon passing the three exams, the remaining 6 months from Jan 2007 - Jun 2007, I had to complete about 6 assignments at my workplace, then compile it inot a report (a little similar to our poly 3rd year project) and submit it to the lecturers. One of the lecturers from SP will be you supervisor and he will visit you at your workplace to give you advice on the project and also to grade you on one of the assignments if you happen to choose that assignment.

Thank you all!

I notice entry criteria for (SOTC) specialist diploma in WSHO has been lowered. Ppl with 5 yr experience as safety coordinators can also signed up. No need degree or diploma to sign up SOTC. This means after 1 yr, spore may be flooded with SO.

So best way forward to secure our future is upgrade to degree in HSE. I think the job market & salary for SO will peak in 1 yrs time, then it will decline when oversupplies kicks in. So a degree in HSE may be useful to keep the salary high.

I am also an RSO.
The current Safety officer course is competency training.
There is no exam for it. It takes only 6 months to complete.
The reason is because, since 1st March, additional Workplace is included under the WSH Act.
Companies are crying that there is not enough SO in the market to fill up the positions. :)
Good for those who are already SO. In 1 yr time, SO will be flooded.
It only need "o" levels to be an SO. From previously - Dipoma.

There will be assignments. But there will be no exams.
i.e. assignments can be everyday after class. or after every subject.
Basically they are testing your competency.

Previously, was - First 6months: Theory/ exam. Next 6months will be project/ assignments plus presentation.

This new system is very confusing. Because currently only 1 batch at SP and 1 batch at NP is running. You might want to contact SP lecturer to enquire more.

In Safety, there are alot of thing to learn. Not just the safety officer course. Using just the safety officer cert, is bare minimum. You still have to consider ECO, FSM, etc.....

Can PM or email me if you require more information. I will be glad to assist you. More convenient and easier to communicate.

Yes, I agree... The cert is just bare minimum...You will still have a lot a lot to pick while on the job.

I believe I was from the last batch in SP when I graduated last July, where we attended the 6-months lectures+exams, then the 2nd 6-months, we had to complete assignments and submit a report.

BTW, does any RSO here still have their professional review when we are submitting application to MOM to become a RSO??

---------------------------

a friend of mine with engineering dip & SOTC & Nibosh cert recently got a new mgr position , salary more than 8K. He keeps telling me i must get a Nibosh cert but i was sceptical - until he showed me a letter from his new boss, who notified the europe HQ to say that they hv employed some one with Nibosh & a safety dip. He told me european MNC dunno what we learn at SOTC, they dunno our safety standards can meet europe's standard. But if a SO got Nibosh, he knows u hv met the UK safety standard for sure.

So i planning to go take Nibosh , not in spore (>$5k) , but in jb for 1/4 of the amount.
Anyone else interested ?

no need FSM, better go for ECO, coz SOTC dun covers environmental. FSM comes later priority.

Nibosh is recognised locally by european MNC. It covers environmental.

this specialist dip is probably 1 yr course & for ppl who wish to work in reverse osmosis plant or waste water treatment plants etc.

ECO is only 1 week course & teach about laws & codes of practise regarding environmental protection, emissions & radiation protection act etc.

Its easier to find a job with a specialist dip in WSH (safety officer) than the above.


Nebosh course is for SO who already graduated & wish to work oversea or locally with MNC. sorry my mistake, Nebosh dun seem to cover environmental , after looking thru their website.

With the Specialist Diploma in Environment and Water Technology alone cannot get you a RSO job. It is more of a complementary to our existing RSO certificate especially if you are looking for a safety job that includes environment. With many companies ISO14001 certified, they prefer candidates that have some environment knowledge and experience. This also opens your choice for job in the market.

just ended my Neobosh IGC yesterday (only 2 days course) , and now hv to wait 2 months for exam. There is no calculations for Nebosh, but course material is 50% thickness of SOTC course material. Really got to study. The lecturer is fantastic, he is a also a trained psychologist & taught us to use mind maps & acronymn techniques to study & how to be exam smart. He gave us 87 model questions as homework & the model answer will come later.
He told us many SO including my ex-colleague who do not hv a degree has become safety mgr because of this Nebosh.

He is also a manpower supplier to oil rigs & dubai & Qatar. I also get to know other classmates who actually worked in oil rigs earning a couple of hundreds per day. He also say those SO who work in shipyards are more qualified to work in such oil/gas rigs or platforms, than compared to me who come from oil/gas industries. :cry:
those who wants to work in such jobs must go study some courses in www.opito.com. :smile:

make sure u register yourself in advance & pay deposit. Otherwise when they advertise today, tomorrow class will be full again. Its the same for ECO course. You must insist that they take yr deposit or something.

Previously when i ask my company to register for me, they delayed & i missed the batch. Got to wait another half year. So i apply myself & my HR scolded me becoz the company policy dun allow self applying.

Dear guys,

I chanced upon this forum and this particular thread while searching for EOHS stuffs. I regret to say that I do not own a bike, and I hope this does not diminish the amount of advice and help given. hehe. I have read the whole thread, and I wish to comment that it had certainly heartening to find fellow forumers of similar occupation helping out one another.

First, I would say I'm a 20+yrs guy working in a engineering company with committee member in the company's EOHS dept for <1yr, conducting regular HIRAs and audits. Being exposed to this area, I would say it is quite refreshing for a change and there is so much new stuffs to learn in this area. Had ~3years experience in semicon industry.

Coming from a engineering discipline (diploma), I had lost interests in it and am keen to further develop my career in EOHS. I am aware that one needs to accumulate certain years of relevant experience in this safety line before being eligible for a Specialist Diploma and subsequently being a RSO. Personally, I feel I am a person who is sensitive to changes in the environment and one who had an eye for details, which i feel are also impt qualities of a safety personnel

Taking my own initiative, I would be proceeding to pursue a Advance Certificate in WSH, while still gaining experience as a committee member. However that will still not be enough experience garnered.

Hence I hope to get some advice on:
1) Is there any company willing to hire someone 'fresh' for a similar WSH role, in order for me to gain more experience?
2) Is my current plan by taking the advance cert a correct route?
3) Another other suggestions on furthering my career in WSH?

Being a new bird in this area, i hope i had not make a fool of myself in this first post, as I do not have anyone to discuss with.

Also, if any fellow friends here is willing to take me under your wing in your company, I would certainly welcome you to send me a PM.

Thanks in advance!! =)

my advice is stick to yr same job, volunteer more in yr safety committee, but do make yr safety department ppl committed to write you a testimonial letter of what you have volunteered every year.

At the same time sign up for the specialist dip in wsha. The minute u graduated 6 months later, u would hv acquired almost 2 yrs of safety experience - enough for MOM to register u as a Registered qualified WSHO.

The job market for WSHO is said to boom even more next year for construction & hotel industries especially. Pay in construction for 3 yrs experience can hit 5k, 5 yr experience can hit 7k max. If go oversea dubai & Qatar, even higher.

btw, enrolling in ngee poly wsho dip course is easier if yr company applies for u.

Hi all,

Many members here are still taking BCSS. For your information, BCSS is not valuble now.

You should be looking into the Safety coordinator course conducted by MOM ATP or Advance Cert in WSH by WDA ATO.

Those who wish to work oversea eg Middle East, should take the NEBOSH IGC or higher qualification, NEBOSH International Diploma.

Hi nage,

Due to the economic downturn, there are many programs introducted by the WDA. This is to help those who would like to change their career due to retrenchment or company to tie over by avoding retrenching their employees. There is a SPUR program which is highly subsidised by the gov.

Basically, if you want to become a safety supervisor, you need to have at least a certificate in WSH accredited now by WDA under the WSQ qualification. I think your problem is that now due to the demand, priority is given to those who is sponsored by company. However, you still can try to enrol directly to the training provider that provide this course. You can log into www.mom.gov.sg and go to the training provider to find out which training provider that conduct such courses.

In the past those safety courses are conducted by MOM ATP but now gradually WDA is taking over and if you want to become safey supervisor, you have to take the WSH supervisor cert course and to become a safety coordinator you need the advanced certificate in WSH.

I feel you may face some difficulty in securing a safety supervisor job without the experience. Normally company send their existing staff who involve in some safety activities in the company for the WSH course and later assisgn them as full time safety supervisor. Most company do not employ safety supervisor who have no experience at all in safety. BeforeI become a WSH officer, I started off as a safety supervisor but the company employed me then was I used to double up as part-time safety supervisor in my previous company.

I hope my explaination give you a better picture and if you still in doubt, do let me know.

I know of only one company that employ those without any experience and train them on the job ie Orion

All the best in your pursue as safety supervisor.

Hi Brudders,

Why not contact Mun Siong Engineering? They need safety supervisor or coordinator.

How low are we looking at. Im joining this industry not just for the salary, but for the passion that i have for the job. A normal sustainable sum is ok for me.

Safety is my passion. I believe i would be able to contribute well when i work with this attitude.

I've tried other jobs, but this job just gives me a great feeling, an inner satisfaction of doing things right. Caring for those who risk their lives for a mere sum of our monthly pocket money and getting those neck-tie-collars equally responsible for infringments. My heart goes to the workers in the front line. Let me know if there are companies hiring for the position of Safety Coordinator or Safety Supervisor.

Hi all,

Many members here are still taking BCSS. For your information, BCSS is not valuble now.

You should be looking into the Safety coordinator course conducted by MOM ATP or Advance Cert in WSH by WDA ATO.

Those who wish to work oversea eg Middle East, should take the NEBOSH IGC or higher qualification, NEBOSH International Diploma.

yes, even safety coordinator course at BCA are no longer running. It has been replaced by Advance cert in WSH.

i am currently in the 1st batch of Advance cert course, not easy, its competency based. Lots of reports and assignments.

Its better for those who are already in safety line to take up the course as we need to use reports of our own workplace as evidence for the assignments.

so e course harder ezit?? cost at 1.9k rite?? any rebate for sporean? lucky i take liao safety co...:angel:

yap, harder due to the assignments and reports u need to do. as u need to answer the qns based on ur own company. and take sample report and evidence from ur own workplace.

yes $1.9k, but got SPUR grant only for SPOREANS. :)

but my lecturer said that, those already have safety coord cert last time, might or might not come for refresher or bridging course due to the lesser in training time and lesser module compared to the course now. (Might only, bt not confirm yet as told by my lecturer)

All the best.

sporeans paid 10% only, so its S$197.95. Most likely MOM requires all safety supervisor to take CERT in Safety in the future, so BCSS not that valuable in the market.

no lobang for now la bros at my plant.

bro in dis line nitec is nothing.......:sorry: for ma harshness...u need e certificate in wsh or bcss 1st before taking to e next step. anyway fyi as wat toyota23 say there's no more safety coordinator course, they replace it with advance certificate in wsh. u can refer to dis link for more details..

http://www.sp.edu.sg/SPweb/appmanager/home/default?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=CET_WSQ_ACWSH for advance in wsh.

http://www.sp.edu.sg/SPweb/appmanager/home/default?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=CET_WSQ_CWSH for certificate in wsh meaning the 1st step in safety line..


its a good step for u, its a good pay job and some safety personnel pay u cant believe it,its much higher den a higher nitec or diploma graduates....(no hard feelings:lol:)but fyi as wat i've say b4 in ma previous pages, if u got no experience dun dream of coming to safety line unless there's some company willing to take in fresh graduate or ur fren is recommending u to a company. if not den...sorie its jus a waste of time n money, ma fren his cert has been a year old and till now not yet get jobs n some of e forumer's here cert is 2yrs old but not yet werk as a safety personnel, anywae :cheers:

Hi

I understand there is no more safety officer course, instead the specialist diploma course is in place now.

Those who want to qualified to be a safety officer (which is now called WSHO) have to take this course. Please note that the course is not a certification for a person to be a WSHO but only a qualification. You still need to have a number of years of experience before you can register as a
WSHO.

criteria needed :- Previously, you need to have at least a diploma in engineering to take this course. Now to cater for the demand, safety supervisors who have a number of years of experience can apply for the specialist diploma course.


- where to take up the course:- Singapore Polytechnic.

WSHO= Workplace SAfety and Health Officer. What is NITEC by the way?


can anyone tell me if i could take up safety officer course or safety coordinator with just a NITEC cert? i would love to work in this line after my NS which is arnd september. Can anyone share with me?

Hi MS-13,

I mean the course is so popular, it will be hard to get in. So if u r already working as a safety officer role in a company but without the formal training, will it be easier to get accepted into the course?

I was retrenched from a semi-con firm when it close down but was rehired as a WSH Engineer. Previous exp from my time as a safety comitttee member.

2. Possess WSH skills and knowledge equivalent to that of Advanced Certificate in WSH or Certificate in Safety Coordinators Training Course  SCTC or preferably 5 years of working experience as Safety Supervisor/Safety Coordinator.

How they judge you have WSH skills and knowledge pertaining to that of the advance certificate?

thanks for the reply!

As I am in the process in moving into WDA WSH training, just like to make comparison between the training materials for previous safety coordinator course and current advanced certificate in WSH . Sorry for not making my intention clear earlier. It will be great if any bros here can share if you happen to have the training materials for certificate or advanced certificate in WSH course. Thanks in advance.

Hi! I just happened to search for more places offering Certificate in WSH and saw your threads discussing about being a registered safety officer.

I joined safety line about1 year ago, have been trying to get in Specialist Dip. in WSH, but was rejected, as i only have 1 year experience and do not have Adv. Cert. in WSH.. So now i decide to take on Certificate in WSH and step by step, hopefully by end of next year can complete what i am aiming for.

Yet the intake for NTUC LearningHub is full for the July, so pray hard that there might be 1 vacancy, so i can complete by Aug and get the cert in Sep.

Guess this is a long road to go :cheeky:

Your conversations in the previous threads are very interesting and useful :angel:

hi, not sure if i'm asking in the right thread, but this seems to be a rather active discussion on safety courses, and job, so here goes...

i'm currently do BEnvOHS (part time degree) provided by PSB, with no prior safety field working exp. where would i stand in the market upon completion of my degree? (right now, the future seems gloomy)

safety personnel? (seems like a generic term)
safety supervisor? (seems to require specific cert e.g. lifting/scaffolding)
safety coordinator? (is there such title as mentioned previously SC course has been replaced by adv cert WSH)
safety officer? (definitely out i guess, since it requires 2 yrs exp, etc)

sorry for the mouthful, thanks if anyone can advise.

Yes, you need to register with MOM.

There are currently two polytechnics offering this course, Ngee Ann and Singapore Polytechnicss, Work-place Safety & Health Officer Course. I think it's S$2961. I am sponsored by my company to attend this course, cos we need a registered WSHO in my company. I attended the night classes started last July, had my exams in Nov last year. Just got my results.

I will need to complete 6 assignments and a report this semester, which is from Jan 2007 - Jul 2007. For Diploma holders, we have to work in related safety area in your company for THREE years and apply to be a register WSHO with MOM with your 3 years of "safety" experiences. For Degree holders, you all will need only TWO years of experiences.

But you have to be MENTALLY PREPARED. There is a lot of theories to study and memorise...

I cleared two weeks of leave before my first exams and had to lock myself in my room for the full two weeks to study. I studied till 2 am almost everyday and woke up at 9am the next day to continue studying.

If you intend to go for the course, better hurry up. I heard from the SP lecturers(I am taking it at SP) that they increase the criteria to only allowing Degree holders to register for the course and there may be an entrance test too...

If you really going for the course, and need my summarised notes (which I shared with my classmates too), we can arrange to meet for me to LEND you(must return me WITHOUT any writings on them, ok?? :smile: )
Hummm, in this case i really have to hurry up, as i am a dip. graduate. Hopefully by next year the criteria still remains the same.

Hi, slim chance. Even for me with Dip. cert in engieering. also have to start from the beginning (i only have 1 yr exp. till today). Unless u have more than 3 years exp (adv. cert.) and 5 years (specialist dip.). in safety line, u have to start from the basic, this is the requirement. Trust me on this, i already delayed for 6 mths in digging in this 'criteria' thing.
