Factory’s inaugural event includes talks and fun activities

The Star Online, 23 October 2012

news 23102012Limbering up: Some of the 459 VCB staff doing some warming-up exercises before the walkathon held as part of VCB Safety Day.

IN an effort to raise safety awareness, manufacturer Versatile Creative Bhd held their first VCB Safety Day 2012 at its factory in Jalan Pandan Indah, Ampang

About 459 employees and their family members turned up for the half-day event which began with a walkathon followed by a colouring contest, a talk on occupational safety hazard by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (Niosh) and lucky draw.

Booths were set up by the police, Fire and Rescue Department, Niosh as well as for health checks, first aid and CPR.

VCB Safety Day 2012 organising chairman Norasikin Mohd Rasim said they wanted to improve the level of safety awareness while getting employees to voluntarily learn about the importance of it.

“We have trained some staff on how to administer first aid, look our for danger signs and how to react during an emergency.

“Last September, we organised an emergency response and preparedness plan on basic chemical spill,” she said.

VCB managing director Michael Eow said although the company had not faced any serious accident cases in the last five years, he was glad that they were holding their inaugural Safety Day.

“We have been part of the Fire and Rescue Association and some of our staff have attended several safety-related programmes. We are planning to send more employees to be better equipped with knowledge on occupational safety,” he said.

The event was launched by Niosh chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, who spoke about the importance of safety by employers.

He said under the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994, employers were required to take care of the safety, health and welfare of their employees.

“Those with a higher sense of awareness on safety and health in the workplace will be able to execute their jobs better. These employees are highly motivated and productive, which is why this is a very important aspect in an organisation.

“In 2001, the rate of accident was 10 for every 1,000 workers. This number has reduced in the last decade but the rate is still high compared with developed countries,” he said.

Lee hoped the effort put in by the company would benefit the employees.

During the event, VCB employee Ram Bahadhur Lama from Nepal won the best slogan competition with his entry ‘Safety Begins with Me’.

Kesedaran kemalangan tempat kerja rendah

Kosmo! Online, 3 October 2012

KOTA BHARU — Jabatan Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan Malaysia (JKKPM) kini sedang berusaha meningkatkan tahap kesedaran dalam kalangan masyarakat terhadap kemalangan di tempat kerja.

Ketua Pengarahnya, Datuk Ir. Dr. Johari Basri berkata, walaupun sudah ada kesedaran dalam kalangan mereka tetapi usaha ke arah itu perlu ditingkatkan kerana masih banyak kemalangan di tempat kerja berlaku di seluruh negara.

"Sikap tidak mengambil berat tentang menjaga keselamatan dan kesihatan di tempat kerja menyebabkan kadar kemalangan di tempat kerja terus meningkat,” katanya kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan Seminar Keselamatan dan Kesihatan 2012 anjuran JKKPM peringkat Negeri di sini hari ini.

Dr. Johari kesal kerana ada pekerja yang tidak mengindahkan peraturan yang ditetapkan majikan ketika bekerja seperti pemakaian topi, jaket dan kasut keselamatan di kawasan kilang atau projek pembinaan.

Menurutnya, JKKPM sebagai peneraju kepada keselamatan dan kesihatan negara terus komited melaksanakan tiga tanggungjawab utama iaitu penyediaan standard, penguatkuasaan dan promosi bagi memastikan keselamatan dan kesihatan di tempat kerja sentiasa terjamin. — BERNAMA

Basmi penagihan dadah di kalangan pekerja agenda utama Felda

Berita Harian Online, 26 September 2012

 

KUALA LUMPUR 25 Sept. - Felda menerusi pelbagai agensi kerajaan akan meneruskan usaha membasmi dan menangani masalah penagihan dadah di kalangan pekerjanya dan peneroka.

Pengerusi Felda, Tan Sri Mohd. Isa Abdul Samad berkata, meskipun usaha itu semakin dilupakan oleh pertubuhan-pertubuhan bukan kerajaan (NGO), namun ia masih menjadi agenda utama Felda.

"Nampaknya isu dadah ini semakin tidak mendapat perhatian bukan sahaja di kalangan NGO tetapi juga oleh pihak pembangkang. Apa yang menjadi perhatian pembangkang adalah membuat pelbagai cerita dongeng mengenai Felda sehingga lupa terhadap masalah dadah.

"Mungkin bagi pembangkang isu ini tidak wajar diberi perhatian kerana tiada jaminan undi daripada golongan penagih dadah," katanya pada sidang akhbar selepas majlis Penyerahan Polisi Menghindari Dadah dan AIDS Kumpulan Felda di sini hari ini.

Majlis itu turut dihadiri Presiden Kumpulan Felda Global, Datuk Sabri Ahmad dan Ketua Pengarah Jabatan Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan, Datuk Ir. Johari Basri.

Felda merupakan syarikat ke-19 melaksanakan Koda Amalan Pencegahan dan Pembasmian Penyalahgunaan Dadah, Alkohol dan Bahan di Tempat Kerja (2004) dan syarikat ke-28 yang mempunyai Koda Amalan Pencegahan dan Pengurusan HIV/AIDS di Tempat Kerja (2001).

Beliau berkata, semua kakitangan tetap Felda bebas daripada masalah itu kecuali terdapat kes terpencil dalam kalangan pekerja kontrak.

"Bagaimanapun, masalah ini masih menular dalam kalangan peneroka dan keluarga mereka. Kita akan berusaha mengurangkan gejala itu, tetapi untuk berjanji mencapai sifar masalah dadah bukan mudah.

"Felda tidak boleh berjanji bila boleh menangani masalah ini. Perlu diingat janji hanya boleh dilakukan apabila kita mampu menepatinya," katanya.

OSH issues important elements to boost productivity, Niosh chairman tells industries

Borneo Post Online, 18 Oktober 2012

KOTA KINABALU: Industries should treat occupational safety and health (OSH) issues as important elements to increase their operations’ productivity, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (Niosh) chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, said yesterday.

He said the OSH could assist companies improve work environment and strengthen the workforce morale which would lead to increased profitability.

“We need to promote to all industries that safety is good business because it involves the company’s image.

“Most companies talk too much about branding to increase public image, but without addressing the occupational safety and health issues, people will not be impressed if the companies have experiences in workplace accidents,” he told reporters after launching an OSH awareness seminar for staff of Kim Teck Cheong Group of Companies here.

The seminar was co-launched by Lee and Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Dr Yee Moh Chai.

Lee also expressed concern over commuting accidents which have increased by 40 per cent over the past six years.

In 2006, a total of 17,704 cases were reported nationwide and the figure jumped to 24,809 last year, he said.

“How many skilled labour can we afford to lose if this problem is not addressed?. It’s a big loss of quality manpower to the country,” said.

Lee suggested that a programme must be conducted by all companies on safe driving skills awareness which should also include elements on managing road safety. — Bernama
