A comparison between PSB safety degree and Unisim safety degree.

Psb offer a shorter duration and its stated that it is recognise globally. Unisim will be able to apply for moe tuition fee loan. Putting all else equal, which cert will be more prefered by employers?

I believe youre talking about the degree by University of Newcastle at PSB? Depends on where you'd want to work. I guess if you work overseas, the Newcastle degree would be better than unisim. Locally, I guess Unisim would have more recognition in the coming years since its just been declared local uni mean got government backing.

My sis did take the degree from PSB. She got a job offer before she graduated. No exp other than poly attachment. Local dip with the Newcastle safety degree from PSB. So far only work 2 months. 2.8k. I guess she was quite lucky. And what's more this line of work no competition from local uni grads since they dont offer this course.

I also can open a Pte Sch & stated it on my sch website that it is recognize globally. It is legal!

Can list out which PSB Partner Uni that you are going to compare with UniSIM?

A Newcastle degree is always better then UniSIM degree if you want to work in overseas. However Bachelor of Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety is only offer in Sg & onshore oncampus does not offer this course to their students in Au.

As long as you have one of these certs listed below, you can become a Workplace Safety & Health Officer. So there are so many competition in this industry which include a lot of foreigners and freelancers.

I think WSH Diploma should be enough.

Hey guys thanks for all the information given. Have around 5 years experience in the safety construction field. Currently taking the Specialist diploma also. Is it easier to get RSO if you hold a safety degree? Or chances are all the same for all qualification as listed by Kyoji? If i have the Specialist Diploma do I need a degree to survive and have better prospect in the Safety field?

I also got SDWSH, really depends on what you want? I want a degree in this field and become a professional in time to come. After studying for first sem, I realise safety are so wide. But quite challenging as I have 2 very young kids who constantly need attention.

Hi,
It largely depends on what u meant by survive. If u are talking about working as a safety officer doing all the ground works forever, yes u can survive with the sdwsh ( + other qualifications like ECO, FSM, confined space, auditor etc.) without a degree. For me, on top of these, I took and just graduated from Kaplan UCD ( DL) , and starting my Msc with NUS next month. (All part time, full time job , family , kids , like many of part timers) All depends on what u want in life.
