OUR LIFE-SAVING RULES
Carlsberg Malaysia has introduced Life-Saving Rules (LSR), a group-wide initiative, since June 2018. They are:
- LSR 1 : Always follow traffic rules
- LSR 2 : Always follow lockout / tagout procedures
- LSR 3 : Never remove, bypass or impair safeguards or interlocks
- LSR 4 : Always follow work-at-height procedures
- LSR 5 : Always follow confined space entry procedures
ZERO LOST-TIME ACCIDENTS
2018 was a landmark year for health and safety in the brewery with ZERO lost-time accidents, setting a new record for 405 consecutive days without lost-time accidents as of 31 December 2018 and beating the previous record of 257 days in 2016.
The achievement can be attributed to an enhanced health and safety culture inculcated via a combination of employee communication, new procedures, and reward cum performance management systems.
At the heart of this is a renewed focus on the Health & Safety Triangle, where the more near-misses and safety concerns reported and acted upon, the higher the chances of preventing first aid and recordable injuries, lost-time accidents, and ultimately fatalities.
Consequent to this raised awareness, we had a perfect record of 100% of employees worked within the brewery (including unionised staff) submit near-miss and safety concerns. In 2018, the Group saw a threefold increase in safety concern submissions compared with a year earlier.
Moreover, line managers and supervisors play an important role in driving safety concern submissions by including it as part of the agenda before every shift begins, and via walkabouts with their respective teams.
In Singapore, MayBev Pte Ltd, in which Carlsberg has a controlling stake, has aligned with, and is committed to the same health and safety standards as our warehousing operations.
