Best Construction Courses in Singapore

Last Updated on May 10, 2024 by Admin

Singapore is one of the best countries in Southeast Asia in terms of the quality and quantity of high-rise buildings. We can see a lot of tall buildings, a lot of tall housings, and a lot of tall offices in Singapore. The number of buildings and also the quality of the buildings in Singapore is one of the signs of its capability in erecting and constructing those magnificent works.


When we take a look at the number of high-rise buildings in Singapore, we can also find that for the amount of land it has Singapore is dense with skyscraper buildings. Yes, it only ranks in the 5th Place in terms of the number of skyscraper buildings in Southeast Asia, but if we consider the fact that the area of Singapore is very small then we can consider Singapore as the country with the most high-rise buildings in South East Asia.

We can see a lot of landmark buildings in Singapore that attract a lot of attention because of their quality in Construction and design such as Marina Bay Sands, Garden by the Bay, and one of the latest projects in Changi Airport: Jewel. Just by seeing those examples, we can be confident the quality of construction is really good in there.

Workplace Safety and Health Courses

One of the most important things in running some construction work is the safety and held aspect of the project. And the bigger the project is the more emphasis should be put into the workplace safety and health of the workers involved in the building construction. And Singapore also emphasized this aspect. The government provides citizens of Singapore and its permanent residents some subsidies for taking courses related to workplace safety and health specifically in Construction and building projects.


Now if you are one of those who need getting the courses, here are some of the best courses you can take for construction building in Singapore:

1. Construction Safety Orientation Course (CSOC)

Safety starts from understanding the field of work in detail. Also comes from knowing and identifying the roles and responsibilities in a construction job. Also combined with the knowledge on following the safe working procedures, doing risk control measures while working at height, knowing how to respond to fire emergencies. The Construction Safety Orientation Course (CSOC) will help you cover all of the mentioned skills and information to keep you safe and in good health condition.

2. Building Construction Supervisors Safety Course (BCSS)

Those who are assigned to be a supervisor in the construction industry in Singapore, need to attend Building Construction Supervisors Safety Course (BCSS). This is a mandatory construction course in Singapore for those who work in the construction industry as supervisors. This is also a prerequisite unit or module for the Advanced Certificate in Workplace Safety and Health (Level B) for WSH coordinators.

This course aims to train the competency of WSH coordinator or supervisor in the knowledge and skills to supervise workplace safety and health for the construction industry. It aims to build the skill and competency to identify common hazards and risks while working on construction projects and taking appropriate control measures.

4. Perform Formwork Activities

Now if you are the one in the project that needs to do all to perform formwork activities, this course is the one that you need. This course goes hand in hand with the previous course mentioned. If the first one is for the supervisor, then this one is for those who do the work.


5. Advanced Certificate in Workplace Safety and Health (Level B) for WSH coordinators

If you have completed the basic building construction supervisors and safety course (BCSS course), then you may go get the advanced certificate in WSH to improve your skills further. The next course that you want to take after that is named Advanced Certificate in Workplace Safety and Health (Level B).
