The SSSC is a mandatory training course for individuals who are to undertake the role of a supervisor in the marine industry.
2.2.2 Workplace Safety and Health (Shipbuilding and Ship-Repairing) Regulations 2008 Reg. 6 (8) stipulates that: “It shall be the duty of every person not to oversee or supervise any work (including any process) in the shipyard or on board a ship in a harbour unless he has received adequate safety and health training to ensure that the work that he oversees or supervises can be carried out safely.”
This course is accredited by the Learning Service Providers (LSP). The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has requires learning service providers to attain the ISO 29990:2010 Learning Service Provider (LSP) certification as part of the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) training.
The ISO 29990:2010 LSP certification is administered by the Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) through its Certification Bodies (CBs) and will replace the MOM Accredited Training Provider (ATP) Scheme.
