Northport (Malaysia) Bhd (Northport), a member of MMC Group, participated in the Workplace Accident-Free Week programme from 8 until 12 July 2019, coordinated by the Department of Occupational Safety and Health.

Various activities were conducted throughout the event, which included a Mega Occupational Safety Health Toolbox session. In this session, all Divisions and Departments simultaneously delivered safety awareness briefing at their respective workplaces. A safety message from Dato’ Azman Shah Mohd Yusof, Chief Executive Officer of Northport was also read by the Heads of Divisions and Departments in front of their staff. In order to ensure the message reaches across Northport’s shift workers, continuous safety messages were flashed to the terminal equipment operators via the Vehicle Mounted Terminal system. Cross-divisional safety audit and inspection were also conducted by safety representatives from each division and department to identify potential hazards at various workplaces.

Apart from participation by the internal employees, Northport’s contractors, tenants and port users were also provided with Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment and Risk Control awareness training to promote risk assessment in their daily operating activities. To strengthen Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) compliance, HSE Omission Notification (HON) and speed limit enforcement were also conducted by the HON enforcer, Port Auxiliary Police and Fire & Rescue team, to reprimand safety violators within Northport premises.

Through this programme, Northport sealed its commitment towards safety and health at its workplace. It is also evidence of Northport’s continuous effort towards HSE excellence that deserves the recognition of ISO 45001:2018 certification, awarded to the company recently.
