The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objective of the GROUP is to balance the shareholders’ value, welfare of employees, community and environment in which it operates. Towards this end, the Group continues to focus and strengthen CSR initiatives it has undertaken as follows:-
The Occupational Safety and Health Committee continue to monitor the safety and health procedures are appropriately adhered to by all employees. During the year, the Group hired an external company to conduct a 2-day course on Forklift Safety & Certification. The participants were taught safety at work place, introduction to Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 and forklift safety like daily forklift truck inspection, understanding gears and operation controls, loading and unloading, operation safety and truck handling and steering controls. This will help ensure we have careful and competent forklift drivers.
The Group continues to upgrade its machinery. This has provided on-going personal improvement opportunities to our employees. The suppliers would organise and provide training to members of staff who have been selected to run the machines. Some staff were sent for external courses.
The Group continues to monitor the discharge and disposal of waste generated from the production processes. Waste is separated into hazardous and non-hazardous, packed and stored away in a room and collected by a licensed agent under the Environment Quality Act 1974.
The Group has also contracted with agents to collect for recycling waste paper and used plated it generates from the production.
As part of the contributions to the community, the Group co-published the following books:
- Occupational Safety and Health Practices: The Way Forward;
- Occupational Safety and Health Practices: Issues and Challenges;
- Managing Risk in the Workplace;
- Risk Management towards Safe Practices;
- Aircraft Management from Engineering Safety Perspective;
- Engineering Business and Management: Exploring Issues and Challenges;
- Productivity and Quality in Engineering Business Management.
It is hope that the books will go towards ensuring there is a safe work environment for employees.
The gathering intended to promote staff mingling and communication to provide a friendly workplace and conducive work environment.
During the year, the staff visited old folk’s home to bring cheers to them!
The management would review the results of the above activities undertaken in relation to the Group’s business and environmental conditions. The Group would improve its CSR activities and will introduce new initiatives progressively.
