HIRARC or HIRADC is used as a structured approach in Leopad Group for identifying, evaluating and controlling hazards at workplace. This is to achieve better the company performance of no injury/ damage to employees, properties, environment and reputation. Ever since the achievement of OHSAS 18001 & MS 1722 certifications, our own HIRARC has been able to ascertain the extent of compliance and influence on the company’s performance, that includes reduced accident/ incident rate, improved safety practices, enhanced standards and increased profitability. Visible top management and employees commitment to risk assessment, competitive safety intelligence, high level safety knowledge and cooperating in safety resources are the means of sustaining safety best practices in Leopad Group.
In line with the continual improvement in the management of risk control, a one day HIRARC Workshop and Preparation training was conducted at Best Western Marina Island Resort Lumut on 6th October 2012, sponsored by RM Leopad Lumut Branch. This training was conducted to ensure participants understand the risks and control measures to be taken in their job scopes, and also to be able to prepare their own HIRARC. Group SHE Management is very positive that the participants are now able to understand the requirement and the true values of HIRARC. They should now be able to perform and lead their subordinates towards an Occupational Safe and Healthy working culture.

GROUP SHE MANAGER
Leopad Group commitment to employees safety and health is our highest company value, and our Top Management and employees involvement has been the foundation of our success in our improved performance over the last few years. From our Top Management to our line supervisors, visible and consistent commitment to safety and health has made a significant impact. We have taken on increased responsibility and accountability in Safety and Health, and our journey to an accident or incident free workplace is a continuous one.
One measure we use to monitor our Safety and Health performance, compliance to regulatory and the company’s requirements, is by conducting frequent workplace audits. Our standard requires that all incidents be reported, recorded and investigated, based on the type and severity of the incident. Root causes must be identified and action taken to prevent recurrence. Our Safety and Health Management System enables us to report incidents, track the progress of corrective actions, analyze the trends and identify potential risks to Safety and Health. A tracking format is now implemented and practiced ( see below). We collect and analyze information on:
- - Unsafe acts
- - Unsafe conditions
- - PPE non-compliance
- - Near miss
- - Scaffold Standards
- - Equipment /Hand Tools
- - Material Conditions- Housekeeping
