The Safety, Health & Environmental ( SHE ) committee should frequently ask ‘ How do we maintain the commitment in the committee,  and find new ideas, activities or programs to keep everyone’s interest ?’  The SHE committee should constantly improve and evolve.  It is also necessary to go back to basics and it is critical to evaluate our performance periodically using objective criteria.

To re-charge the SHE committee, the following are some suggestions and questions to gauge the overall performance of the committee :

  •  Does the management support the committee’s purpose and objectives?
  • Does the committee represent both the management and workers from various job responsbilities and departments?
  • The committee should meet every month.
  • Attendance of the committee members should be consistent.
  • The committee should identify incident trends throughout the Group.
  • Investigations reports should be done for both accidents as well as incidents that did not result in injury or property damage, but potentially could. 
  • Does the incident reporting process includes input from all employees/ workers regarding preventive measures for incidents reported?
  • Does the committee have any decision making authority?
  • Does the committee influence SHE related training programs?
  • Does the committee coordinate SHE inspections?
  • How does the committee disseminate SHE issues and concerns to the workers?
  • Ensure the inspection checklists and accident investigation forms are relevant, or do they need to be updated?
  • Encourage to infuse safety messages in all other meetings and trainings.
  • Try to provide a treat at the monthly SHE meetings to show appreciation for the committee members  time and commitment.                                         
These are only some points that can be useful to do a quick assessment of the SHE committee.  Group SHE management requests all branches SHE committee to be committed and continuously improve the meeting methodology to show a more matured performance.   The SHE committee plays an important role in the SHE Management System, and every single  member in the committee plays a vital role in this.

RM Leopad has a bright outlook on the back of recently bagging a contract from Samsung Engineering (M) Sdn Bhd. Our company secured  RM 10.5M  for Sabah Oil & Gas Terminal (SOGT) project in Kimanis Sabah involving scaffolding work . The project started in the mid of April for a duration of 1 year. RM Leopad is widely known by clients as a provider of highest quality in everything we do. I believe, with our business virtue of professionalism, competence and credibility, the project will be completed within the time frame given and the end result will be with excellence.

Safety and Health practitioners all over the world are striving hard to identify better ways to prevent injuries and illness at workplaces.  LEOPAD GROUP is of no exception, as over the past few years our mindset has shifted from just having ‘Safety Procedures‘  to achieving the international standards of  ‘Occupational Safety and Health Management Systems ‘.

The root of this change is the shift in our thinking.  We are no longer looking at Safety as a special initiative that is unrelated to our core business functions.  Rather, we speak and strive to create a culture where Safety and Health management is an integral part of our company business.  GROUP SHE Management wants all our branches and departments management to make Safety and Health into their decision making process, just as they consider cost, quality and customer service.  The guide principal for this is using our OSH Management System ( OHSAS 18001 & MS 1722 ) as an everyday way of doing business.  This system provides all the management a framework for managing their branches’ and departments’ Safety and Health responsibilities and accountabilities.  The management with the association of their Safety Department should develop strategic OSH management plans.  Put these plans into action and monitor their effectiveness through regular internal audits.  This will indirectly enable them to improve their Safety and Health performance and reduce or prevent injuries, illness, or the worst case scenario, fatalities. 

All our management must consider this OSH Management System as an important trend in business, especially in the Safety and Health field.  This management system will reflect the principles of quality, due diligence, continual improvement, and provide for the creation of prevention programs that can be implemented, maintained, documented and verified.
