With effect from 26 September 2017, management of terror threats is incorporated as part of workplace risk management together with all other hazards. Additional questions on SGSecure are now part of the bizSAFE level 3 audit, which includes identifying potential workplace terror threats and implementing necessary risk control measures, planning of emergency evacuation routes and hiding locations in the workplaces. Risk communication, a requirement under WSH (Risk Management) Regulations, must now include SGSecure tenets.
The new bizSAFE level 3 Risk Management Audit Checklist has 44 audit questions to which evidence must be supplied through document review, personnel interviews and physical inspection during the audit. There are three possible outcomes to each audit question – Yes, No, or Not Applicable. In instances where the audit question is not applicable, evidence must be supplied as to why it is so. There is also a new template for interview of various personnel within the organisation during the audit, including audit questions specifically on SGSecure. With the bar raised for a higher audit standard, participants can learn from this class what to expect in their own preparation for their impending bizSAFE level 3 application or renewal.
This course aims to empower the participants to understand what each audit question entails in order to prepare for their upcoming bizSAFE level 3 audit. Key points on what to look out for in each audit question will be highlighted. Workshops to encourage application of this new knowledge will be conducted throughout the one-day course.
The RM and RA leaders of each organisation are encouraged to attend together so that they can work out amongst themselves who will develop new plans, procedures, documents, policy and templates to meet the new bizSAFE 3 requirements, and to make necessary amendments to their existing documents. For effective results, whole RM/RA teams are advised to attend this workshop together with their laptops.
This workshop is conducted by practising MOM-approved WSH Auditors.
