BSc Human Factors in Safety (SST)
While I was pursuing B.Sc in Human Factors in Safety, I was a WSHO in semiconductor industry with over 4 years experience.
When I came to study Biomechanics and WRMSD, I grew conscious of limitations as WSHO and a management system. An individual may not be able to understand how to link mind and muscles connections to achieve safe biomechanics. I decided to jump into fitness industry in 2014 as a Personal Trainer.
Due to the big change in job scope and exposure, I gradually lose touch with WSHO and struggled to comprehend certain topics such as Incident, Accident Investigation, and Project Management (both which I’ve resit 3 times).
Despite this educational and financial challenges, my career with Fitness First @ One Raffles Quay now spans 4 years. I have the opportunity to coach rehab trainings to individuals with musculoskeletal disorders, such as frozen shoulder, lower back pain, baker’s cyst, etc, that are either originated from daily lifestyle or work related.
On top of these changes, I was able to apply knowledge (especially risk management into client base management).
As convocation approaches, I am now searching for opportunities to collaborate with WSH to tackle issues such as WRMSD, mental burnout, rehab for silver hair population, NIOSH lifting equation, awareness to ergonomics.
