Ministry of Manpower MOM has extended the deadline for companies to conduct mandatory safety-time out STO
Singapore Ministry of Manpower MOM announced Safety Time Out has been extended. MOM has given Singapore companies 15 more days to conduct a mandatory safety time-out STO. MOM said that they received feedback from companies that more time is required to review safety procedures for the Safety Time Out STO.
MOM has extended the deadline for the Safety Time Out STO to Sep 30.
Singapore Ministry of Manpower will then conduct compliance checks from 1st October 2022 and will take debarment actions against companies that are found to have not completed their mandatory safety time-out STO. This was announced on MOM Facebook post.
Ministry of Manpower MOM had previously announced that companies in higher-risk sectors would be required to conduct a mandatory safety time-out STO to review safety procedures from September 1 to September 15. The Safety Time Out STO was part of the measures introduced under the heightened safety period.
MOM Ministry of Manpower also mentioned that companies that failed to the Safety Time Out would be debarred from employing new foreign employees for a month. In Singapore this was the first time a mandatory safety time-out STO had been imposed.
The Safety Time Out STO requirement is applicable to all companies in the construction, manufacturing, marine, process or transport and storage industries as well as industries that use heavy or industrial vehicles.
Ministry of Manpower MOM reported that the Ministry of Manpower MOM and the Workplace Safety and Health Council WSHC had received feedback that the industries were supportive of the heightened safety measures. However the companies needed more time to comply with the mandatory safety time-out STO to carry out a thorough review of their safety procedures. Many Safety Experts would agree that doing a more thorough job of the Safety Time Out would be better than just doing it because a safety time out was required.
MOM also said "Safety is our priority and MOM will partner the industries to build safer workplaces."
Safety Experts also feel that companies should send their staff and workers for training and retraining to improve their safety awaresess and safety knowledge
