INDUSTRIES UNDER MINISTRY OF MANPOWER'S SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND NEA'S SAFETY AUDIT SCHEME
As of 1st Mar 2001, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has extended its Safety Management System (SMS) scheme to cover oil and petrochemical industries and wafer fabrication plants. As NEA's Safety Audit elements are covered under MOM's SMS scheme, there shall not be a need for industries covered under both schemes to carry out a separate safety audit for NEA subject to the following procedures:

  1. Industries engage 3rd party auditors registered with both MOM and NEA or 2nd party auditors from their companies' corporate HQs with the approval of both MOM and NEA to carry out MOM-SMS once every 2 years; and
  2. The SMS reports shall be submitted to MOM with a copy to NEA. NEA will accept MOM-SMS as NEA-SA.
