Star: PETALING JAYA: Two schools have begun running the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in School Programme to make schools a safer and healthy places to be in.
National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (Niosh) chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye said SM Convent Kajang, Selangor, and SMK Seri Manjung, Perak, had been selected for the pilot project, jointly-organised by Niosh in cooperation with ExxonMobil and TNB Janamanjung Sdn Bhd.
He said the programme’s objectives were: ensure safety, health and welfare for teachers and supporting staff and protect students against risks to safety and health.
The third objective was to establish a safe and healthy working environment (office, laboratory, canteen, toilets, hostels and playing fields), which would fall in line with a person’s at-work psychology and physiology, he added.
“The OSH in School programme will benefit students who are going to make up the nation’s future workforce and contribute towards making safety at work our life culture,” he said in a statement yesterday.
Lee added that the OSH in School programme would be the core Niosh programme for this year.
