06 Oct 2022 Announcements

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and the Singapore Institution of Safety Officers (SISO), the appointed Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Board for Workplace Safety and Health Officers (WSHO), have undergone a comprehensive review of the current Safety Development Unit (SDU) framework, and taken into account WSHO survey feedback at the 19th WSHO Conference.

The revised SDU framework, which is based on three categories, namely (i) WSH in-employment practice (ii) Attending course/training/conference accredited by CPD Board and (iii) Other WSH contributions/Attending unaccredited WSH training, will replace the current framework with effect from 1 January 2023.

The existing renewal requirement of 40 SDUs will remain. WSHOs can still renew their registration with SDUs obtained from accredited courses attended before 1 January 2023. However, excess SDUs will not be allowed to be carried forward for the next WSHO renewal.
