Factory Registration schemes enhanced
As a follow-up to the new Factory Notification Scheme which was launched for the lower risk factories on 1 November 2008
As a follow-up to the new Factory Notification Scheme which was launched for the lower risk factories on 1 November 2008, the Ministry of Manpower will introduce an enhanced factory registration scheme for the remaining 8,000 factories with higher risk activities from 1 March 2010. The new Scheme strengthens the requirements for implementation of risk management (RM) and safety and health management system (SHMS) in these factories at the point of registration.
Under the Scheme, registration requirements are commensurate with the level of risk of the factory operations. Different registration requirements are stipulated for two groups of factories within this category based on the different levels of risks their operations entail. Applicants are advised to pay careful attention to the requirements.
