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.
