A 2-day course “Authorised Entrant & Standby Person for Confined Space” was conducted on 12th and 13th April at one of the Group’s manufacturing operations sites by a trainer from the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Kuching. The comprehensive course consisted of theory based classroom lectures and outdoor practicals.
From the course, the participants learned about the legal requirements of confined spaces, the hazards of working in a confined space, the procedures of entering a confined space and many more. They were also taught how to use the protective equipment and other related equipment associated with working in a confined space.
Altogether 20 personnel (mainly plant maintenance and safety personnel from all sites) attended the course.
