Enhanced Safety Orientation Course For Workers

The CSOC is a mandatory WSH training course for all workers working in the construction industry. Currently, all workers (regardless of whether they are local or foreign nationals) in the construction industry are required to attend and pass the CSOC to ensure they attain the key knowledge on work safety before they start work at the worksite.

The CSOC is directly linked to the issuance of work permits for both the new and existing foreign workers. All new workers are required to take the CSOC within 14 days of their arrival to Singapore before their work permits can be issued, and to pass the CSOC test within 3 months. For all existing workers (be it locals or foreign nationals), re-certification of CSOC is required

The enhanced CSOC is targeted at ensuring all workers receive more in-depth knowledge and skills training to better equip and prepare them for their roles at the worksites. The introduction of the practical component will help familiarise workers with training in lifting postures, fire fighting skills, and working at height.

At the end of the course, the participants are expected to recognize common safety and health hazards, understand the measures to avoid injuries and diseases in the construction site, awareness of the dangers at the construction sites and enable workers to understand their role in the prevention of accidents.
