Occupational Safety & Health
Cultivating the culture of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) has been the Group's priority in ensuring a safe and healthy environment for its staff and the community at large. The Group's commitment in OSH is reflected through the establishment of five sector-based sub committees namely, Transportation, Forestry, Corporate Services, Agriculture and Manufacturing.
The Group's involvement in OSH is extensive that through its wholly-owned company, Rakyat Berjaya Sdn. Bhd. (RBJ)
, the Group was given the trust to implement the Mentor-Mentee Programme
by the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) since 2014. Through this programme, Government-Linked Companies were given the responsibility as mentors in guiding companies in the Small and Medium Industries to improvement OSH practices in their respective premises. As a mentor, RBJ implements appropriate trainings and guidance on matters relating to occupational safety and health to its contractors while being monitored by DOSH as the facilitator.
