Introduction: Safety management system is implemented to maintain a safety and health workplace. In order to check whether
the safety management system is functioning and what level it is functioning, third party safety audit is conducted. Based on
the audit findings, the workplace can improve their current safety practice. There are many audit methodologies in safety audit.
However, Singapore has developed their own safety auditing system ConSASS for construction project more than $30 million.
Why we have chosen safety auditing system ConSASS?
1) There are over 40 MoM approved safety auditing firm and 200 construction companies using ConSASS. The ConSASS
requirements are open to all these companies. As a result, there is no confusion between the auditor and auditees. Both auditor
and auditee use the same checklist and both parties are aware of the requirements.
Before the implementation of ConSASS
2) Different audit firms use different checklists and a lack of a standardised scoring system pose challenges when differentiating
worksites in term of their effectiveness and implementation of SHMS. Using one standardised checklist enhances the consistency
in the auditing process and allow cross comparison of worksites in terms of the capabilities in managing safety and health risk
3) After the audit, the auditee may not aware the safety status of the company. In ConSASS, a mechanism to profile the
maturity level for each element of the SHMS in a worksite is established. With availability of the maturity profile, the management
of the worksite could systematically focus its attention to improve the weaker elements in order to elevate the overall maturity of
their SHMS to manage.
