We are committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment for all employees. We progressively implement the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Management System in our estates. The OHS Management System complies with local regulations, which includes hazard identification and prevention, risk assessment and management, programme evaluation and continuous management system improvement.


Our Health and Safety Committees, which comprises management and staff representatives, are responsible for identifying potential hazards, evaluating these potential hazards, recommending corrective actions, following up on implemented recommendations, providing employees with education and training, and developing a grievance mechanism. In addition, we have employees who are members of the Emergency Response Team (ERT). Should a crisis occur, the ERT will be mobilised to respond to the crisis in accordance with the Group’s policies and procedures.


OHS messages are delivered daily through morning meetings. In addition, we have OHS manuals and procedures, working instructions, first aid practices, emergency responses and other health and safety activities to ensure all employees are aware of the health and safety risks related to their jobs. OHS aspects are also incorporated into the Collective Labour Agreement with the workers’ union. It includes provisions such as equipping estate workers with personal protective equipment and setting up of a Health & Safety Committee.


To ensure the health of our employees and their families, we have medical teams in every operational area. Our medical teams conduct routine check-ups and deliver various health programmes that aim to increase the awareness of a healthy lifestyle which include healthy living tips, health education, and counselling related to chronic diseases.


We aim to reduce accidents, injuries and fatalities in our operations. Every work accident is recorded and evaluated. Recommendations made are then implemented to prevent or reduce recurrence of similar incidents.


The main hazards in plantations are falling sharp fronds and bunches during the harvesting process and sharp fronds on the ground. To minimise risk of injury in our plantations, all harvesters are provided with safety helmets, gloves and boots. Hazards in the palm oil mills include overhead sling conveyors, slippery floors, hot steam and loud noises. Workers are briefed at daily shift meetings to reinforce safety vigilance.
