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?

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...

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.

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.

safety supervisors are different class from safety officer.
