SERDANG, 22 Nov - Universiti Putra Malaysia’s Centres for Responsibility (PTJs) are urged to step up the management of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in order to ensure a safe working environment.
UPM Registrar, Dato’ Wan Azman Wan Omar said each PTJ should be resourceful and constantly work towards finding ways and means to reduce the accident rate at the workplace.
“The UPM community should be exposed to more OSH’s information. The awareness campaign should be ongoing in order to embed a sense of responsibility towards self-safety at the workplace.
“All parties, including students should be fully committed to the running of OSH programmes,” he said at the closing ceremony of the 2012 UPM OSH week held here.
He added that the central OSH committee and PTJs should always be pro-active in playing their roles and work collaboratively.
“Each committee appointed should study carefully the details of the current accident cases and assess the efficiency of the campaigns that have been carried out to ensure the management of OSH at each PTJ is run according to a standard of procedure.
In conjunction with the occasion, the Institute of Bioscience (IBS) was declared the most active OSH committee in UPM, based on seven criteria in the efficient management of OSH’s activities, integration and consistency.
