KUCHING, Jan 8: Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB) aims to achieve zero incidents which may lead to fatalities and even injuries at the workplace among its workers.
SEB senior manager (Occupational Safety) Effendy Syaiful Abdullah said it is the best interest of the company to ensure all workers would come home to their loved ones safely after a hard day’s work.
He admitted that working in the electricity-related field is quite dangerous, especially near the SEB system (plant).
He also noted that SEB’s most common incidents every year involved cases of falling from high places.
“Therefore, we have to identify the risks of danger at the workplace and ensure that these risks will not affect us,” he said at Working At Height (WAH) programme jointly organised by SEB and Centre of Technical Excellence Sarawak (Centexs) held at Centexs Rampangi in Santubong today.
The event is participated by 51 workers and contractors from 19 companies registered under SEB who will be given exposure and training on the theory and demonstration of using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Additionally, Centexs Industry Academy deputy director Dr Nadianatra Musa informed that Centexs has set a benchmark to have 500 participants in the implementation of WAH programme throughout this year.
Also present were SEB Senior Executives (Contract and Procurement, Bumiputera Participation) Awang Abdul Razak Awang Abdul Hamid and Azrul Hisham Hajon, Centexs Commercial Services Sdn Bhd general manager Mohd Shahren Mohd Yusri and Centexs WAH teaching staff Mohd Khairuddin Mohd Nasir. – DayakDaily
