On 16 December 2016, we completed the stage 2 OHSAS 18001:2007 (Occupational Safety and Health Management System) audit by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) and have been recommended for certification, under the scope of Production and Packing of Beer, Stout, Malt drink, Shandy and Cider. The results of the assessment showed that our Malaysia production plant met the requirements of the OHSAS 18001:2007 standard and satisfactorily demonstrated the implementation of its OHS management system. Both SHAPE and OHSAS 18001 have laid a solid foundation for Carlsberg Malaysia to continuously improve its operations and achieve zero accidents at our workplace.
In line with our goal of cultivating an accident-free workplace, we hosted the annual Health and Safety Day at our brewery in Shah Alam from 18 to 19 August 2016. The programme, launched at the Visitor’s Lounge, featured several talks by health and safety experts who spoke on topics that ranged from having a healthy and balanced worklife to firefighting skills and having the corresponding equipment in place. There was also a safety talk conducted by our EHS Manager and a blood donation drive which saw 32 donors responding.
Other key activities conducted in 2016 were:
- Chemical Health Risk Assessment
- Hazard Identification & Risk Assessment
- Noise Prevention Program
- Monthly safety topic campaign
- Bottle pressure test on the packaging line to reduce falling bottles and breakage
