The Army Occupational Health & Safety Policy
Divider line


Operations in the Army are inherently demanding, challenging and complex, involving various levels of risk. Commanders are therefore responsible to professionally conduct realistic, tough and safe training in order to fulfil the Army’s mission. Safety must be practised purposefully, so that it enhances mission success and gives our soldiers the confidence in committing to tough and realistic training. Trust must be built among commanders and soldiers to engender a safe climate, where every individual proactively owns and assumes responsibility for his/her personal safety and the safety of his/her teammates.

Our Army is committed to Our People by ensuring that Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) are accorded priority while ensuring operational readiness.

Hence, our Army will:

  • Achieve mission success with no loss of lives or injuries through negligence.
  • Make continual improvements in our OHS management and performance.

  • Address all significant hazards identified in our workplace and activities.
  • Provide guidance to Commanders to allow them the flexibility and control to make informed decisions with regard to training and safety.

The strength of Our Army’s OHS system is as strong as the weakest link. Therefore, every individual must value its importance and be responsible to make our operations, training and workplace a safe and healthy one.

Mission Success, Safety Always.
