Outsource WSH Safety Officer Services

Outsourcing Workplace Safety & Health (WSH) is one of the finest decisions a company can make nowadays. Obtaining safety officer services from a third party has become a rapidly growing trend in Singapore and is capable of saving both time and money for your firm. 

Most importantly, it enables your organisation to devote more resources to other areas without exception. WSH outsourcing allows various businesses to focus on their core operations while assuring their commitment to environmental, health, and safety considerations.

Is It Mandatory to Appoint WSH Officers/WSH Coordinators at Your Worksite? 

Workplace Safety and Health (WSHO) Officers 

According to regulations, the following workplaces must appoint a WSHO to provide safety coordinator services:

  • Shipyards in which any ships, tankers and other vessels are constructed, reconstructed, repaired, refitted, finished or broken up. 
  • Factories used for processing petroleum or petroleum products. 
  • Factories that carry out building operations or engineering construction projects worth $10 million or more.
  • Any other factory employing 100 or more people, excluding those used to manufacture garments.

Coordinators of Workplace Safety and Health (WSHC)  

Appointing a Workplace Safety and Health Coordinator is required by legislation for any worksite where the contract sum of the building operations or works of engineering construction carried out is less than $10 million. 

Assure Safety provides both safety officer services and safety coordinator services to fulfil these requirements.

Every workplace within the prescribed class or description of workplaces specified in the Second Schedule shall have appointed in writing in respect thereof a workplace safety and health officer.

Workplaces to appoint Workplace Safety and Health Officer are:

  1. Shipyards in which any ship, tanker and other vessels are constructed, reconstructed, repaired, refitted, finished or broken up.
  2. Factories used for processing petroleum or petroleum products.
  3. Factories in which building operations or works of engineering construction of a contract sum of $10 million or more are carried out.
  4. Any other factories in which 100 or more persons are employed, except those which are used for manufacturing garments.

The Workplace Safety and Health Officer is responsible to assist occupier or other person in charge of the workplace to:

  1. identify, assess and advise any foreseeable risk arising from the workplace or work processes,
  2. recommend and assist reasonably practicable measures to eliminate any foreseeable risk or if unable to eliminate, recommend and assist other reasonably practicable measures tominimise the risk and implement safe work procedures to control the risk to any person who is at work in that workplace or may be affected by the occupier’s undertaking in the workplace.

The difference between a safety officer and a safety coordinator lies primarily in their roles and responsibilities within an organization’s safety management structure.

Safety officer holds a more authoritative position within an organization’s safety management hierarchy and is responsible for overseeing and enforcing safety protocols, policies, and procedures to ensure compliance with regulatory standards and best practices.

Safety coordinator serves as a facilitator or liaison between different departments or teams within an organization and is responsible for coordinating safety-related activities, such as training sessions, safety drills, and emergency response planning.
