Singapore CPD Continual Professional Development

Singapore Safety Officers Workplace Safety Health Officers who need to renew their license

For Singapore Safety Officers, every 2 years you need to renew your Workplace Safety Health Officer License. How you go about doing this is by ensuring that you maintain your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.

So how do Workplace Safety Health Officers go about applying Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points?


First lets find out what Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme is and how the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program helps workplace safety and health (WSH) officers stay up to date and expand their knowledge. Please note that the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program is not optional if you are a workplace safety health WSH officer. You are required to take part in the Continuing Professional Development CPD programme.

The Continuing Professional Development CPD programme consists of both structured and unstructured activities, with the goal of helping WSH officers stay competent and relevant to the environment in which they operate.

What are structured activities in the Continuing Professional Development CPD program?

Structured activities are approved by the Continuing Professional Development CPD board (this is Singapore Institution of Safety Officers SISO) and includes:

Formal study courses such as diploma, advanced diploma, graduate certificate, degree or post-graduate.

Lectures and workshops. These lectures and workshops or seminars on regulatory requirements by government agencies but must be approved by the CPD board (SISO) for points.

Approved in-house training about safety, health and environment management.

Unstructured activities improve your competency, but aren’t necessarily approved by the CPD board such as:

Discussions or participatory activities.

Membership in professional organisations e.g. Singapore Institution of Safety Officers (SISO).

Attending site visits and exhibitions.


If you are a training company or a company you too can apply for approval for your courses or workshops as a structured activity

If you organise structured programmes, you can apply to the Workplace Safety and Health Continuing Professional Development Board for your activities to be approved under the CPD programme.

Applications are processed by the SISO Secretariat.

Don’t forget that your employment also contributes to the CPD points.

There are rumours – rumours can be untrue, that Workplace Safety Health Officers have lost their certification or license for failure to maintain Continuing Professional Development points CPD points. So please update your Safety Officer Continuing Professional Development CPD points.  There are also rumours that Safety officers have been asked to provide evidence of their work such as meeting minutes, inspection checklists signed by project managers, incident reports. Whether true or untrue remains questionable.

Just maintain all your documentation- this is your career and livelihood
