||An occupational safety and health management system (OSH-MS) is a systematic process for managing workplace safety and health, providing for goal setting, planning, performance measurements, and clear management commitments and direction. In Singapore, OSH-MSs mandatory for many types of workplaces. Integral to the OSH-MS is risk assessment. All workplaces must conduct risk assessments to identify the source of risks and shall take all reasonably practicable steps to eliminate any foreseeable risk to any person who may be affected by the undertaking in the workplace. Where it is not reasonably practicable to eliminate the risk, other reasonably practicable measures must be taken to minimize the risk. This guide explains how to implement an OSH-MS in the metalworking industry.
