Niosh: Safety systems benefit all

KUALA LUMPUR: Occupational safety and health (OSH) and environmental management systems not only benefit organisations, but also workers and the local community, said National Institute of Occupa­tional Safety and Health (Niosh) chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye.
 
“It will also protect the environment in our pursuit to develop the country,” he said.
 
Lee said 1,057 organisations had been certified for their OSH management systems and 1,225 received certifications for their environmental management systems.
 
“Organisations can monitor, assess and improve their OSH and environmental standards with these systems in place. Studies show that an organisation’s success is closely related to the implementation of the OSH and environmental management systems,” he said.
 
Niosh Certification, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Niosh, is a certification body accredited by Standards Malaysia.
 
The body issues certificates to those that comply with national and international standards in areas such as quality management, food safety management, OSH management and environmental management.
