The Department of Occupational Safety and Health Perak launched the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in School Programme at a school in Chemor recently. The primary objective of the programme was to instil safety awareness in teachers and students in schools.
The event was held at Sekolah Kebangsaan Haji Mahmud, Chemor on Saturday, August 22 and was officiated by the department director, Ir Mohamad Razak Ismail.
In his opening remarks Mohamad said that instilling safety awareness in students at an early stage was important as it would benefit them in the long term. As responsible citizens they would embrace the safety culture and contribute towards making their future workplace safe and accident-free.
“The application of OSH principles in schools will undoubtedly create a safe and healthy environment which would be beneficial to students, school staff and visitors,” he added.
