Before the course was changed to the Apply Workplace Safety and Health (AWSH) in Metalwork course, it was known as the “Metalworking Safety Orientation Course (MSOC)”. Prior to working in the factory, all metalworking workers are obliged to complete the WSH training course.
The Workplace Safety and Health (Factories, Safety Training Courses order – Clause 2 (9)) stipulates that “Any worker employed in manual labour to carry out work in a factory engaged in the manufacture of basic metals, fabricated metal products, machinery or equipment and electrical machinery and equipment must undergo a safety and health training course approved by the Commissioner for Workplace Safety and Health.”
The AWSH in Metalworking course (MSOC) was planned to help construction workers learn the essential work requirements on site, ensuring better safety standards. Workers will also be taught how to respond to emergencies, and comprehend their position and tasks in the metalworking factory.By ensuring that the workers know what to do, there can be a higher level of safety and productivity in the factory.
