As part of our continous effort for safety, Lafarge Malayan Cement has built a Safety Induction Centre in each of its four plants.
Safety Induction Centre is a one-stop safety training centre, which provides classroom and live learning experience on safety. It consists of a classroom and display room whereby attendees will experience common safety practices in the cement industry.
The classroom is equipped with a modern training facility while the display room showcases safety items that are related to Lafarge safety priorities namely personal protective equipment (PPE), work at height (WAH), working in confined space, energy isolation, hot work and road safety.
The idea of having the safety induction centre came across when the Health & Safety Committee from Rawang Plant visited Shell Refinery Company in Port Dickson in 2005.
At the Induction Centre, attendees will experience putting on actual PPE such as safety harness and complete PPE for cyclone unplugging activity. Attendees can also experience how it feels working inside confined space and WAH as there are live sample of confined space and scaffolding in the Induction Centre.
To improve the understanding on LOTOTO, a real energy isolation facility such as the local isolation facility such as the local isolation box and visual cut off switch are available for attendees to practice.
In general, the objective is to have an effective and consistent learning on health and safety, which will accelerate the behaviour changing process for teammates, contract workers and visitors towards being the safest company in the industry by 2010.
