YAB Dato' Sri Najib Tun Razak,
Malaysian Prime Minister.
YBhg Datuk Akmar Hisham Mokhles
Prime Minister Office.
RE: SAFETY & HEALTH OFFICER (SHO) IN SCHOOL
YAB Dato' Sri,
With reference to the above, we humbly suggest that the Malaysian Government, particularly the Ministry of Education to take seriously the cases of accidents resulting in death at school.
Crooning like the rhythm of old newspapers, when the fatal accidents happened in the school, then all the relevant authorities wants to set up an accident investigation committees.
But as usual, after 2-3 months; this committee's name has disappeared from public attention.
So we will "WAIT" another accident at other school, then the name of the Committee of Inquiry resurfaced.
We propose that the " Safety & Health " as one of the new subjects in schools . In fact , the Ministry of Higher Education should urge our local Universities encourage the Government to open new courses at their campus as construction and manufacturing industries are the lack of specialists in this field
The SHO was also appointed from among teachers who have been trained in the NIOSH (National Institute of Safety & Health) to obtain a professional and well-established practice at the expiration of the Professional Certificate.
Imagine if we let how many more students and teachers themselves vulnerable to accidents in the school environment.
As a Government which always precedes the People; we believe this will soon be realized by our beloved Prime Minister
Therefore, the appointment of SHO in each school is highly needed. Besides teaching regular subjects, SHO Teachers will be supervising and monitoring the security system in the school environment.
