Malakoff Corporation Berhad (“Malakoff”) wrapped up inter-site Safety Week celebrations with a finale held at Prai Power Plant (“PPP”) on 26 November 2015. The inter-site celebrations involved more than 500 employees from Port Dickson Power Plant (“PDPP”), Lumut Power Plant (“LPP”), Tanjung Bin Power Plant (“TBPP”), Tanjung Bin Energy (“T4”), PPP, and representatives from local authorities.
The Safety Campaign was organised to reinforce Company’s commitment and dedication towards the importance of safety, health and environment at the workplace. This year, the operations and maintenance arm of Malakoff, Malakoff Power Berhad (“Malakoff Power”) has chosen “Safety Starts With You and Me” as its theme. This theme is fitting with the Company’s mission to instill health and safety culture at the workplace.
Speaking on the company-wide celebration, En. Nordin Kasim, Senior Vice President, Operation & Maintenance Division of Malakoff said, “Health and safety awareness is done throughout the year as we take the wellbeing of our men very seriously.
“We are proud to note that TBPP and PPP achieved 5 million and 3.7 million without lost time injury respectively. Safety Week serves as an enhanced platform for Occupational Safety and Health to share, update and horned everybody’s knowledge and skills to meet the dynamic changes in our working environment. This effective Occupational Management System will contribute towards achieving a total safety culture at our industry.”
In conjunction with the Safety Week, a programme called “Take 2 Programme” was launched by En. Nordin Kasim. “Take 2 programme” is a campaign for all staff to take 2 minutes of their time to identify risks and working hazard at the working area.
Various activities were conducted throughout the Safety Week such as spot the hazard contest, HSSE quiz, Emergency Response Team (ERT) fire-fighting competition and Emergency Response and Rescue Drill and exhibition booths. At each plant, different drills were conducted such as First Aid Rescue in Lumut Power Plant (LPP), Fire Drill Rescue in Port Dickson Power Plant (PDPP), Oil Spill Simulation in Tanjung Bin Power Plant (TBPP) and Confine Space Rescue in Prai Power Plant (PPP).
TBPP’s simulation of Oil Spill incident called “Ex-Tumpah” was also successfully conducted. This simulation is a platform to test and evaluate the TBPP Emergency Response Team (ERT) skills and response during emergency situation at plant, in collaboration with their counterparts in ATT Tanjung Bin (ATB) and Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP).
Lumut Power Plant also organised its Safety Week at the plant to encourage good health and safety culture amongst staff. At its recently held Safety Week, approximately 200 staff and in-house contractors took part in the activities such as Emergency Response & Rescue Competition, Spot the Hazard Contest, Blood Donation and Explorace.
A final Fire Fighting Competition was held at the Safety Week finale where 5 ERT teams from KL HQ, PDPP, LPP, TBPP and PPP went head-to-head against each other to record the fastest time and avoid penalties during the safety drill where Prai Power Plant was crowned the champion title for 2015.
