TM, NIOSH Bangunkan Keselamatan Pekerja

Utusan, 07/05/2015

KUALA LUMPUR 6 Mei – Syarikat peneraju jalur lebar dan komunikasi, Telekom Malaysia Bhd. (TM) dan Institut Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan Negara (NIOSH) akan bekerjasama bagi meningkatkan keselamatan dan kesihatan pekerjaan dalam kakitangannya melalui penyelidikan bernilai RM330,000.

Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif TM, Tan Sri Zamzamzairani Mohd. Isa berkata, perkara berkenaan akan direalisasikan melalui projek penyelidikan dan pembangunan (R&D) merangkumi aspek Sinaran Tidak Mengion (NIR) dan pengetahuan, kelakuan dan kaedah (KAP) yang akan memberi fokus kepada pemantauan perubatan dan persekitaran pekerja TM.

Menurutnya, melalui penyelidikan yang dilakukan, keselamatan dan kesihatan pekerja akan menjadi lebih terjamin kerana mereka merupakan aset yang begitu penting bagi pengendalian operasi syarikat dalam memacu pertumbuhan cemerlang.

Katanya, inisiatif yang diambil oleh TM dan NIOSH itu merupakan antara pematuhan kepada Akta Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan 1994 (AKKP 1994) yang menekankan tanggungjawab majikan dalam mewujud dan mengekalkan persekitaran tempat kerja yang lebih selesa dan selamat.

“Sebagai peneraju pasaran dan organisasi korporat, kami akan sentiasa mencari jalan terbaik untuk melaksanakan pelbagai kaedah ke arah meningkatkan kepuasan kakitangan supaya mereka gembira bekerja sekali gus mencatatkan peningkatan positif kepada syarikat,” katanya ketika berucap dalam majlis menandatangani perjanjian persefahaman (MoA) TM-NIOSH dan majlis pelancaran sambutan Hari Keselamatan TM peringkat kebangsaan 2015 di sini hari ini.

Majlis menandatangani perjanjian tersebut disempurnakan oleh Ketua Pegawai Modal Insan TM, Datuk Mohd. Khalis Abdul Rahim dan Pengarah Eksekutif NIOSH, Ir. Rosli Hussin.

Yang turut hadir, Pengerusi NIOSH, Tan Sri Lee Lam Thyee; Pengarah Jabatan Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerja (DOSH), Abdul Kahar Husain dan Pengerusi TM, Tan Sri Dr. Sulaiman Mahbob.

Ensure Safety of Spinning Rides

The Star, 14/10/2014

The recent case of an eight-year-old Malaysian girl, who was killed after being flung out of her seat from a spinning ride at the Royal Adelaide show, should serve as a bitter lesson to us with a view of preventing similar tragedies in Malaysia.

The mother of the girl, Adelene Leong, must have been traumatised given her description of her daughter as “my lovely beautiful...wonderful little angel of my heart”.

According to the report from Adelaide, the deceased was thrown from the AirMaxx 360 ride which had a height requirement.

The accident is now under investigation by the South Australian authority concerned and hopefully the report will be made public in due course.

The accident was most tragic and it is incumbent upon the authorities concerned to find out the actual cause so that such incidents can be prevented.

It could happen anyone if appropriate preventive measures are not taken.

In Malaysia, our concern is that occasionally there are amusement centres and fun fairs that have games and spinning rides.

In view of this, there are a number of issues which need to be looked into in the interest of safety.

The height limitation is enforced to gauge if a person is capable of properly utilising the safety restraints (seat belt/bar) provided.

There is a false assumption that riders who clear the height limitation understand the dangers associated with the restraint not properly worn or applied.

Safety checks must be conducted before a ride take-off to prevent any elements of neglect by the crew and operator.

The safety mechanisms, including seat restraints, must be regularly checked and maintained before each ride.

Questions that need to be looked into include: Are the ride operators/crew adequately trained by the ride manufacturer?

Is there an operation manual to ensure the proper operation of each ride?

Rides at permanent amusement parks may have a system in place but it will be better to subject them to regular audits.

It should be the concern of amusement park operators as well as that of the relevant authorities to ensure spinning rides at mobile circuses and fun-fairs are safe at all times.
