Legal Requirements

The Workplace Safety & Health (Construction) Regulations states:

“A formwork supervisor shall be appointed to supervise the construction, erection, alteration or dismantling of any formwork structure in a worksite”.

“No person shall be appointed as a formwork supervisor in a worksite unless he has received adequate safety and health training to familiarize him with the hazards associated with the construction, erection, alteration or dismantling of the formwork structure and the precautions to be observed”.

“No formwork structure shall be constructed, erected, altered or dismantled in a worksite except under the immediate supervision of a formwork supervisor”.

Hence, all foremen and supervisors who are assigned to supervise formwork structures are required to attend the Formwork Safety Course for Supervisors. SCAL is the Accredited Training Provider by the Ministry of Manpower for the above course. Other than evening classes in English, we are now running classes in Mandarin.
