About MOM, Singapore


Ministry of Manpower, Singapore

Guided by our Vision of “A Great Workforce A Great Workplace”, the Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM) works to achieve a globally competitive workforce and great workplace for a cohesive society and a secure economic future for all Singaporeans.

The Ministry seeks to enable Singaporeans to meet the challenges of the global economy in the 21st century, to have the skills and opportunity to realise their potential, have rewarding careers in quality work environments, and enjoy economic security. A great workplace goes beyond a safe, healthy and harmonious organisational work environment, to include a strong tripartite framework and relationship between the government, employer organisations and worker organisations.

The Occupational Safety and Health Division (OSHD) is the division under MOM that regulates workplace safety and health (WSH) in Singapore. Its vision is a safe and healthy workplace for everyone; and a country renowned for best practices in WSH. OSHD works with employers, employees and other stakeholders to identify, assess, and manage WSH risks to eliminate death, injury and ill-health.

OSHD is also the World Health Organization’s Collaborating Centre for Occupational Health, the International Labour Organization (ILO) CIS National Centre for Singapore, the current Secretariat for the ASEAN Occupational Safety and Health Network (ASEAN OSHNET). MOM’s Commissioner for WSH also serves as the current Secretary-General of the International Association of Labour Inspection (IALI).
