WSH Coordinator Refresher Training

Overview

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) mandates continuous training for Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) Coordinators to enhance their competencies in managing workplace safety. This includes a refresher training program for WSH Coordinators in various sectors such as Construction, Process, Manufacturing, Marine, and Transport & Storage. Detailed in circular MOM/OSHD/2023-02, dated 16 February 2023, this training ensures WSH Coordinators stay updated with essential WSH knowledge and skills.

Moving forward in 2024, all appointed WSH Coordinators, regardless of their industry, will be required to attend the WSH Coordinator Refresher Training every two years. This is to ensure there is continuous learning, updates and enhancements to their WSH knowledge and competencies. 

The WSH Coordinator Refresher Training enhances participants’ understanding of their roles and responsibilities under WSH regulations, focusing on effective worksite safety management. Through an online learning package covering topics like assertive contractor management, risk assessment planning, and good work practices to prevent serious consequences, participants prepare for a one-day physical in-person workshop. Here, they network and discuss past incidents to prevent future recurrences, fostering a proactive safety culture.
