Briefing Session on Occupational Safety and Health Regulations   Print 
by admin
Hits : 244
Monday 15 July 2019, 8:30am - 1:00pm

Venue: Hotel Armada Petaling Jaya
Lot 6, Lorong Utara 6, Section 52
46200 Petaling Jaya

Our construction industry is one of the most dangerous places of work, in terms of safety and health, accounts for a quarter of all deaths at work. The industry also recorded an appreciably higher rate of fatality, which is about thrice the overall occupational fatality rate.

Unsurprisingly, this situation is not tolerated by the government and the industry, as ‘one death is too many’. Increased number of inspections, enforcements or prosecutions by DOSH have been the main driver to improve the safe working culture in the industry, but this is not enough. Everyone has a role to play, and that includes the client, designer, contractor, trader and materials supplier.

The Guidelines on Occupational Safety and Health in Construction Industry (Management) (OSHCIM) guidelines encourage the client, designer, contractor, trader and supplier to plan, design and manage their project, and the proposed OSHCIM regulations (similar to CDM regulations 2015 of the UK) will make these recommendations mandatory. The general principles of the proposal are the project team must manage the risk well and work well together.

Through it, project’s essentials, such as risk assessment, competence, cooperation, coordination, communication and worker’s participation, will become mandatory and safety and health duties will be created for every client, designer and contractor of a project. It is a great opportunity for us all to take stock of the proposal, support this change process and also offers an opportunity to see how government and industry can work together to deliver the ultimate target of preventing death, injury and ill-health to those at work and those affected by construction work.


  • To explain the background to the changes, some of the constraints placed on DOSH and what DOSH is hoping to achieve;
  • To highlight the main changes; and
  • To provide opportunity for the government and industry to work together.


English will be used for the course and course materials.
