Under the WSH (Risk Management) Regulations, risk management must be conducted at all workplaces to identify workplace hazards, evaluate risks and implement control measures.
This 2-day course aims to inform duty holders of their obligations under the Workplace Safety & Health (WSH) Act and WSH (Risk Management) Regulations, and empowers participants with the knowledge on the systematic process for implementing risk management, from identification of hazards and evaluation of associated risks to implementation of relevant risk control measures.
With effect from 26 September 2017, management of terror threats is incorporated as part of workplace risk management together with all other hazards. Hence, this course includes an additional module on SGSecure, 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 Code of Practice on WSH Risk Management (RMCP), 3rd Revision, was launched on 10 November 2021. The key changes to the risk management process include workplace preparedness for infectious disease outbreaks, employee mental well-being and terrorist threats.
Participants can be top management, managers and supervisors in operations and Human Resource Managers. Under the Code of Practice in WSH Risk Management, Section 4.4 Human Resource Manager, there are general requirements for Human Resource in meeting WSH requirements too.
This course is required for all RM Leaders of organisations and RA Leaders of departments, functions or locations, to learn and apply risk assessment and risk control methodologies and lead their organisations/departments/functions/locations to comply with the WSH (Risk Management) Regulations. Participants will work on their real work scenarios in various workshop group exercises throughout the two days. Participants from the same organisation can be grouped together for more effective and relevant group discussion and application.
Upon successful completion of this course, attendees will be conferred a Statement of Attainment (SOA) by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), which deems the RM and RA Leaders competent to lead their RM or RA teams in risk management (Code of Practice in WSH Risk Management).
The Statement of Attainment (e-Cert) can be used to apply for bizSAFE Level 2 recognition for the organisation by the Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSHC) and the Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM), together with a certificate of attendance from the bizSAFE Level 1 “Workshop for CEO/Top Management” attended by a top management personnel.
Please note: If the RM Champion changes or leaves your company, the newly appointed champion must attend the course as soon as possible to maintain your company’s bizSAFE status.
