Ever since the Workplace Safety and Health Act was enacted in Singapore in 2006, the safety scene in Singapore has been revolutionized.Starting with the introduction of mandatory risk management for the three hazardous industries namely,construction, manufacturing, and shipyards, the requirement was extended to six other sectors including medical facilities and eating places in 2008, and in September 2011 it covered all workplaces in Singapore.The Code of Practice for Risk Management was introduced in 2011, and revised in 2012. A further revision is under way and will be released shortly.While many industries have caught on to the new approach to reducing accidents and improving safety at the workplace through risk management, confusion persists in certain quarters on the scope of risk management, and the methodology for proper risk assessment and control. To guide the practitioners and broaden the coverage of the Act to all sectors, the course aims to review the procedures and recent changes to the Code of Practice.Apart from reviewing and emphasizing the previous guidelines mainly focusing on small and medium enterprises,the new Code expands the application to large enterprises, and suggests the numerical 5 by 5 risk matrix as a viable option, the most recent changes pertaining to the impact and assessment of human factors.The course will cover relevant portions of SS 506: Part 2: 2009, Singapore Standard on Occupational Safety and Health Management, pertaining to hazard identification, risk assessment and determining controls.Lecturer will bring into the course his extensive experience with risk management theory and practice.
