Construction Safety Orientation Course
All workers in the construction industry are required to attend and pass the Construction Safety Orientation Course (CSOC) to ensure that they have attained key knowledge to work safely.
With effect from 01 May 2013, MOM/WSHC requires all construction workers to attend an enhanced two-day course incorporating a new practical training and assessment component.
New foreign workers joining the construction industry are now able to enrol for CSOC at the BCA approved Overseas Testing Centres (OTCs) so that they can be trained and assessed in their home country before arriving in Singapore. Employers are also able to deploy their workers immediately upon their arrival in Singapore.
Workers who have passed the CSOC will be exempted from the Work-at-Heights (Workers) course, unless required by the employer.
