BANGI: The National Occupational Safety and Health Institute (Niosh) today unfurled a giant Jalur Gemilang flag using abseiling techniques at its main office building here.

Niosh chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye said the gimmick to drape the building with the 5m by 11m tarpaulin flag was executed by Niosh’s highly-trained “Work at Height” team, to showcase a combination of creativity and safe work ethics as espoused by the institute.

“Although we often see large flags hung in various types of buildings, Niosh wants the procedure to be done in the right way and by those with the right skills,” he said after the 60th Independence Day Celebration at the Niosh headquarters, here today.

Also present were Niosh executive director Zahrim Osman and executive secretary Ayop Salleh.

Niosh’s “Working at Height” team is made up by qualified instructors from Niosh Security Skills Competition Division led by its manager Muhammad Zaeem Mokhtar.

Lee also showcased his talent in poem recital when he delivered a composition titled “Erti Kemerdekaan” (the meaning of independence) which was penned by poet Datuk A. Samad Said.

A number of 60 balloons in the colours of blue, white, yellow and red to symbolise the 60th anniversary of Malaysia’s independence, were also released during the event.

Lee also said occupational safety and health should be prioritised in efforts to turn Malaysia into a developed nation with low industrial accident rate.

He added in lieu with Niosh’s 25th anniversary, the institute is determined to help the country achieve only two cases for every 1,000 employees in the future, as in other developed countries.

“As we celebrate our 60th Independence Day, we also need to focus on raising awareness on the good practices of occupational safety and health, and make it as our culture.”
