Since safety issues frequently pop up with schools, the Perak Department of Occupational Safety and Health organised a forum entitled, ‘Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Risk Control’ exclusively for schools in Perak. It was held at the Kinta Riverfront Hotel, Ipoh.
The objective was to create awareness on safety and health measures among students and school staff.
“This forum is organised so more schools in Perak can aspire to achieve the safety and health standards,” said department director, Ir Mohamad Razak Ismail.
Sekolah Kebangsaan Haji Mahmud was duly rewarded for being the only school that achieved the required level of safety and health standards set by the department. The school principal received a certificate of excellence.
