General Information

Risk Management is mandatory for all workplaces of various risk levels and industries in Singapore under Workplace Safety & Health Act and WSH (Risk Management) Regulations.

Companies must appoint Risk Management leader(s) and Risk Assessment leader(s) to conduct risk management. They must be competent for the tasks of leading the organisation (RM Leader) or their departments, locations, outlets and functions (RA Leaders) to conduct a proper risk management. Having attended a Risk Management course (WSQ bizSAFE Level 2 Develop a Risk Management Implementation Plan Course) conducted by a SSG Approved Training Provider or equivalent is sufficient demonstration of this fact.

(Reference: Code of Practice on WSH Risk Management, second revision: 2015).

bizSAFE

bizSAFE is a five-step programme that assists companies to build up their WSH capabilities so that they can achieve quantum improvements in safety and health standards at the workplace.

bizSAFE certification is not a mandatory or legal requirement but companies are strongly encouraged to participate in bizSAFE. Tender requirements may also mandate bizSAFE certification as a requirement for the tender that your company is participating in. In the process of attaining bizSAFE certification, your enterprise will also benefit by acquiring WSH capabilities and be able to implement a Risk Management System or WSH Management System at your workplace to better manage workplace safety.

Although bizSAFE certification is not a legal requirement, companies must still comply with the WSH (Risk Management) Regulations and have a proper risk management system in place. Companies can then choose to appoint Risk Management (RM) Leaders and Risk Assessment (RA) Leaders to attend the bizSAFE level 2 “Develop a Risk Management Implementation Plan” course, to learn and apply the risk management methodologies and conduct a proper risk management.

It helps organisations to

  • create a safer and healthier work environment for employees,
  • increase their business competitive edge, and
  • gain recognition by bizSAFE partners and industry.

The organisation will also receive a bizSAFE certificate for each level attained. The company can then display the bizSAFE logo on the name cards, company letterhead and other collaterals.

You can visit the Workplace Safety Health Council website, www.wshc.sg to apply.
