    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?? )

    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...

    i just finished my final SOTC exam, now left 5 projects to hand in. Definitely safety officer career is booming now, many people signing up for the course. Chances of getting accepted is getting slimmer & slimmer due to overwhelming demand.

    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 :

    Good luck to all RSOs!!

    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??

    Thank you all!

    Is it the same you guys took last time? Bt how come u guys took 1 year to complete? its S$4494 per person. More than the fee you guys took last time rite?

    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.

    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.

    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.
