BANGI: A special guide book on fire hazards and risks for all tahfiz and state-run religious schools will be introduced by end of this year.

The pilot project will be a joint effort between National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and Selangor Tahfiz Al-Quran Institutions Coalitions (Pinta Selangor).

NIOSH chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye said the institute and Pinta Selangor have visited five tahfiz schools in Selangor; Darul Quran Kuala Kubu Baru, Maahad Tahfiz Ummul Sungai Buloh, Maahad Tahfiz Ummul Qura Sabak Bernam, Maahad Tahfiz Nurul Huda Shah Alam and Akademi Tahfiz Al-Falah Rawang to assess the situation.

"Before releasing the guidebook, NIOSH, Pinta Selangor, together with other agencies will conduct further studies and assessment on the religious schools' structures, its problems and risks faced.

"We should not think or identify tahfiz are just religious schools. It is also a workplace as there are teachers working there.

"That is why we must be aware that every school and workplace has its own dangers and risks.

"Therefore, tahfiz operators are responsible to ensure that their premises are safe for occupancy," he said after launching the Safety and Occupational Health (OSH) seminar for tahfiz schools at its headquarters today.

The one-day seminar, which is jointly organised with Pinta Selangor and Fire and Rescue Department, will provide input on safety awareness, concept of hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control (HIRARC).

Present at the seminar were Pinta Selangor chairman Mohd Dailami Che Age and 89 tahfiz schools representatives from Selangor.

NIBONG TEBAL: Institut Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan Negara (NIOSH) mengingatkan anggota agensi dan sukarelawan yang terbabit dalam usaha menyelamatkan mangsa banjir di Pulau Pinang mengutamakan keselamatan diri.

Pengerusinya, Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, berkata pihaknya bimbang terhadap petugas berkorban demi membantu masyarakat yang berdepan dengan bencana alam.

Beliau berkata, semua agensi dan sukarelawan yang terbabit dalam misi menyelamat dinasihatkan menjaga keselamatan dan kesihatan sepanjang bertugas.

"Apatah lagi bimbang dengan penularan virus 'Leptospirosis' iaitu kencing tikus yang mudah berlaku terutamanya dalam keadaan air kotor.

"Kita mengambil pengajaran terhadap beberapa kes banjir besar yang berlaku sebelum ini, apabila petugas dan sukarelawan tidak mengutamakan keselamatan sewajarnya yang akhirnya meragut nyawa mereka.

"Oleh itu, kita berharap semua pihak yang membantu mangsa banjir di pusat pemindahan dan lokasi terjejas mengutamakan keselamatan sebelum menghulurkan pertolongan kepada orang lain," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas keadaan banjir di Pulau Pinang selepas merasmikan Seminar Pengurusan Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan di Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina (SJKC) Pai Teik, di sini, hari ini.

Seramai 278 guru membabitkan lebih 400 sekolah di seluruh Pulau Pinang mengikuti seminar itu yang bertujuan meningkatkan kesedaran terhadap budaya keselamatan dan kesihatan pekerjaan di sekolah masing-masing.

KUCHING: Industrial accidents can only be reduced and avoided if all quarters do away with the ‘hangat-hangat tahi ayam’ (not following through) attitude towards the importance of occupational safety and health (OSH).

National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye said such “unhealthy habit” must be changed to avoid recurrence of the same incident in the future.

“One thing that I am very unhappy about is this habit of 'hangat-hangat tahi ayam' attitude.

“Over the years, these three words “siasat” (investigate), “kaji” (analyse) and “lapor” (report) will surface whenever there is a catastrophe or accident.

“After a while, issues beleaguering this mishap will quiet down. The same three words will resurface when there is recurrence of a similar incident.

“In the end, lesson was never learned. We must get rid of this bad habit,” he said when delivering his keynote address during the Public Works Department (PWD) Second Safety Forum here today.

State PWD director Datuk Ir Zuraimi Sabki was also present.

The call for change, Lee said, not only meant for government agencies but also the private sectors and the people at large.

On a related matter, Lee said the increase in activities in the construction sector, which created higher risk over safety issues, was a call for action for developers to put in place hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control (HIRARC) principle in their operation.

“This will help workers and their supervisors to identify hazards and risks and find ways to avoid them,” he said.

He said the latest fatal incident at a construction site at Lengkok Lembah Permai, Tanjung Bungah, in George Town on Oct 21 was another example where safety was taken for granted and was the result of poor OSH practices at worksite.

“There are others who do not want to invest in safety and health at the workplace because of the cost factor. But when accidents occur leading to either injuries or fatalities, such tragedies bring pain and agony especially to the families of the victims,” he said.

Although the government authorities enact laws and enforce them, Lee said the responsibility for implementing a safety system at the construction site lied mainly with the main and sub-contractors.

Aspek keselamatan lemah punca tragedi - NIOSH

news oct3
 
Oleh Siti Azila Alias

KUALA LUMPUR: Tragedi tanah runtuh yang menyebabkan 14 pekerja binaan tertimbus dekat Tanjung Bungah, Pulau Pinang, pagi tadi boleh dielakkan sekiranya majikan mengambil serius amalan keselamatan dan kesihatan pekerjaan (KKP) di tempat kerja.

Pengerusi Institut Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan Negara (NIOSH), Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, berkata ini kerana tapak pembinaan dikategorikan sebagai zon berbahaya bukan saja kepada pekerja tetapi juga orang awam di sekitarnya.

Katanya, kelemahan majikan dengan mengabaikan kedua-dua aspek berkenaan dilihat menjadi punca kejadian sama berulang biarpun penekanan mengenainya sudah berkali-kali disuarakan sebelum ini.

"Statistik Pertubuhan Keselamatan Sosial (PERKESO) menunjukkan bahawa 7,338 kes dilaporkan dalam industri pembinaan pada tahun lalu, berbanding 4,330 kes pada tahun 2011, iaitu peningkatan sebanyak 69.47 peratus.

"Berdasarkan rekod Jabatan Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan (DOSH) pula, sebanyak 106 kematian direkodkan sepanjang tahun lalu dan 40 kematian dalam tempoh tujuh bulan pertama tahun ini.

"Rekod berkenaan menunjukkan masih ramai majikan yang tidak memberi perhatian terhadap aspek keselamatan di tapak kerja. Bukan itu saja, majikan juga perlu memastikan kawasan berkenaan diperiksa lebih kerap semasa musim hujan atau cuaca buruk bagi memastikan ia selamat," katanya dalam satu kenyataan, hari ini.

Selain itu, tambah beliau, pemaju dan kontraktor juga disaran mengguna pakai konsep pengenalan bahaya, penilaian risiko dan kawalan risiko di tempat kerja supaya dapat membantu pekerja mengenal pasti bahaya serta risiko seterusnya mencari jalan bagi mengelakkan kemalangan.

KUALA LUMPUR: Institut Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Negara (NIOSH) menggesa supaya amalan keselamatan dan kesihatan pekerjaan (KKP) dijadikan agenda rakyat dalam usaha mengurangkan kemalangan di tempat kerja dan kediaman.

Pengerusinya, Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, berkata kes kebakaran sehingga meragut nyawa termasuk tragedi 23 orang terkorban dalam kejadian di Pusat Tahfiz Tahfiz Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah di ibu negara baru-baru ini boleh dicegah sekiranya amalan KKP yang baik dilaksanakan.

Beliau berkata, NIOSH kini giat mempromosikan Wawasan Sifar dengan menekankan amalan KKP yang baik untuk mencegah kecederaan dan masalah kesihatan berkaitan pekerjaan.

"Masyarakat mesti menerima pakai konsep Wawasan Sifar kerana ia dapat membantu mengurangkan jumlah kemalangan di tempat kerja dan rumah, sekali gus menjadikan KKP sebagai agenda rakyat.

"Wawasan Sifar bukanlah sasaran baharu, tetapi perubahan dalam pemikiran kita bahawa semua kecederaan dan masalah kesihatan berkaitan pekerjaan boleh dicegah," katanya dalam satu kenyataan hari ini.

Lam Thye berkata,  pelaksanaan Wawasan Sifar bukan berkisar kepada pencapaian kemalangan sifar, tetapi lebih kepada usaha mencari penyelesaian untuk mencegah kecederaan dan masalah kesihatan berkaitan pekerjaan.

"Di peringkat global, terdapat minat yang semakin mendalam terhadap Wawasan Sifar dan kita perlu menggalakkan orang ramai untuk melaksanakan inisiatif terbabit.

"Tragedi maut termasuk kebakaran di pusat tahfiz boleh dibendung jika sistem pengurusan KKP yang baik dilaksanakan serta audit keselamatan dijalankan di tempat kerja," katanya.

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.”
