MELAKA, 6 July: NUBE SMJ organised the one-day Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Seminar for NUBE members, in Melaka, on Saturday.
One of the main objectives of the seminar was to create awareness on OSH - a statutory requirement in the workplace under the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994. Apart from the various Sections, Regulations and Schedules, the participants gained the knowledge to apply the principles of Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Risk Control (HIRARC).
The 33 participants who took part in the seminar, provided very positive feedback as it was a new learning experience, and a beneficial one.
The seminar was conducted by NUBE President and SMJ Branch Secretary Bro Michael Tan, who had recently attended a 3-day seminar titled “OSH-C, Occupational Safety and Health Coordinator", at the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
