5 Things You Need to Know About Worker Safety and Health

5 Things You Need to Know About Worker Safety and Health
Tips that can help save lives, prevent injuries and keep your loved ones at peace!

Passing by construction sites across the city of Kuala Lumpur is a daily occurrence. While we often see workers with their hard hats on and hanging off great heights, did you know that some are not using the safety equipment properly?

For instance, when wearing the hard hats, some workers do not have the chinstrap in place; which is strapped under the chin, where it should be. It may seem like a small detail, but the chinstrap is as important as wearing the hard hat as it is meant to keep it in place and provide the maximum protection. Not securing the hard hat correctly, for example, can lead to accidents and injuries that have been on the rise. In fact, did you know that the number of reported industrial accidents has increased by 3.05% since 2015? That number may seem little, but according to Social Security Organisation’s (SOCSO) annual report, the number of reported accidents had increased from 34,258 cases in 2015 to 35,304 cases in 2016.

In conjunction with World Day for Safety and Health at Work, and to boost awareness around worker safety in the country, 3M Malaysia has compiled useful tips so that workers can return home safely to their loved ones:



1.   Safety harnesses that have experienced a fall must be replaced immediately and cannot be reused
Once a worker has experienced a fall, the safety harness is considered damaged as the energy absorbent has been used and the harness stitches might have loosened.  When this happens, the safety harness must be replaced immediately as it would have already served its purpose.

Another factor that needs to be taken into consideration is a selection of the correct safety harness size. It’s important to choose the right fit – if it is too small or too big, the impact or the force of the fall will not be evenly distributed, resulting in injuries.  The right fit would be to feel that the harness is snug around your body.



2.   The minimum height required to wear a safety harness starts from 2 meters
This may come as a surprise, but if you are working any higher than two-stories, you would need a safety harness for personal protection.

3.   Select your respirators based on the hazards you’re exposed to  
A respirator is a form of respiratory protection which helps to reduce inhalation of small particulates such as airborne biological particles, dust, and fumes. Long-term exposure to these hazards can lead to occupational lung diseases.

There are different types of respirators based on the hazards a worker is exposed to. For example, those involved in tasks such as sawing, hacking floors, and preparing powdery chemicals will require an N95 filter respirator which filters out 95% of dust particles. Similarly, it can also be used by the general public in cases when there is an outbreak such as H1N1 or haze. In fact, motorcyclists can wear this too to restrict inhaling dust from the roads.

Don’t assume that sawing wood for your DIY project is harmless, as exposure to wood dust has been associated with health issues due to the natural chemicals in the wood, or substances in the wood such as bacteria, molds, or fungi. Wood dust is considered carcinogenic to humans (Group 1) according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). IARC states that wood dust causes cancer of the nasal cavity (nose area) and paranasal sinuses (spaces in and around the nasal cavity) and of the nasopharynx (upper part of the throat, behind the nose). Wood dust is also associated with toxic effects, irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, and decreased lung capacity and allergic reactions.¹

A reusable respirator which comes with cartridges is needed if exposed to other hazards such as chemical fumes or vapor from the paint. It is important to note that the respirators would need to be replaced once the wearer experiences resistance in breathing or the respirator is soiled.


4.   Protecting your hearing is just as important
Hearing protection such as earplugs and ear muffs should be used when the noise level is at 85db, as per Factory and Machinery Act, FMA Noise Regulation (1989). For example, one can experience this level of noise from using a chainsaw, walking nearby a construction site, attending concerts and even at a shopping complex on a busy day!

It may seem mundane but the impact of not using proper hearing protection may cause noise-induced hearing loss, tinnitus and so on. In general, 3M Malaysia recommends reducing the Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) by 50% for estimating the amount of noise reduction required, in line with current industry practice.


5.   Always check the PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) expiry date
Different PPE products have specific shelf and service life. For example, service life for respirators is subject to time of exposure, the concentration of hazard, toxicity, and breathing rate. Depending on the manufacturer, the shelf life for some products such as respirator cartridges and hard hats are 5 years from the manufacturing date.

Meanwhile, the shelf life for hearing protective devices (earplugs and earmuffs) can range in between 3 to 5 years, subject to different design material. Both employers and workers should always refer to the packaging of the PPE for the relevant shelf life to ensure the quality of the equipment and worker safety.

It is important for employers to place a strong emphasis on worker safety to protect their employees. This can be done through training, educating their employees, as well as ensuring that adequate PPE is used so that everyone can go back to their loved ones each day. 

3M is committed in the continual research and development of products and solutions which preserves the livelihood of Malaysians and offers a wide array of PPE that are designed with a high emphasis on functionality, comfort, and quality in mind.

Pepsi introduces the drink from the future – NEW Pepsi Black promises a bolder taste with no calorie
·         Consumers can now experience their favorite calorie-free cola, guilt-free
·         The new drink promises to give the bold taste that Pepsi fans love



KUALA LUMPUR, 28 March 2018 – Pepsi, the world-renowned cola-flavored beverage made to quench your thirst, announces a NEW cola. The new Pepsi promises to bring the future to Malaysians today by providing a zero-calorie product without compromising on the bold cola taste. This means that consumers can continue to enjoy their favorite cola brand Pepsi without having the guilt as they will be consuming a no calorie drink.

This innovative product and exciting beverage of the future, which is now available at all retailers and outlets across the nation, is built on consumers’ changing sentiments towards the consumption of flavored carbonated soft drinks. More consumers are becoming health conscious seeking for healthier beverage option but still look forward to the satisfaction derived from the bold taste of Pepsi. The new Pepsi checks all the boxes in that it will not compromise on taste at all and will maintain the exact flavor.



Indeed, Pepsi wants all Malaysians to Drink the Future Now, the new campaign tagline coined to represent how Pepsi really is the taste from the future. “Advances in research and technology has allowed for the creation of an unparalleled recipe and formula that keeps Pepsi delicious, providing a future where consumers can experience great cola taste with no calorie,” said Santharuban T. Sundaram, Vice President of Marketing at Etika Sdn Bhd.

The new Pepsi has also received the Healthier Choice approval that is granted by the Malaysian Ministry of Health. The Healthier Choice Logo (HCL) allows for consumers to make informed choices and in particular the right food decisions. This is especially important as consumers need to be educated and facilitated in selecting healthier options of food and drinks.

As part of the exciting new launch, Etika has erected a huge outdoor display that will alert Pepsi fans of the new Pepsi availability. Located on Wisma Damansara along Jalan Semantan, the outdoor display, attached with a countdown timer, will feature a descending chiller that will be lowered a few meters each day until 30 March 2018. The countdown timer and chiller will be visible and begin seven days before launch from 23 March onwards. In the chiller are bottles of Pepsi, made to signify how the highly anticipated, futuristic product variant will soon reach consumers in Malaysia.



Once the countdown reaches zero, an exciting lineup of activities will take place at Wisma Damansara where consumers and Pepsi fans will be delighted with various fun and interactive games. There will also be ample opportunity to try out the new Pepsi and experience the true bold taste of cola as the drink from the future will be lowered alongside the chiller on the billboard.  Consumers are encouraged to have the first of the product and join in the fun on 30 March.

Consumers can find the new Pepsi in a variety of forms that include the can 320ml, the four-can pack (320ml), the PET bottle 400ml and PET bottle 1.5L. The product is available nationwide across major retailers, hypermarkets, supermarkets, convenience stores and provision shops.

The four-­piece, resort-­ready Mr & Mrs Smith collection includes two pairs of classic chevron-­printed swim trunks, a linen beach towel, and a pair of wooden bats, all designed using Smith’s trademark red and navy blue to ensure a classic coastal look for beaches in Brazil and beyond.

A short film – and a set of stylish stills – shot on location in Rio by acclaimed photographer and art director Alex Bramall will accompany the launch of the collaboration. And the Frescobol Carioca team have hand-­picked their hotel hotlist for summer 2018 – a ‘Where to wear’ guide, if you will – which will launch simultaneously at mrandmrssmith.com/frescobolcarioca. The range will be on sale for a limited time at frescobolcarioca.com and at selected Frescobol Carioca stores from 1 May.



Mr & Mrs Smith co-­founder James Lohan said: ‘We always relish the opportunity to bring what we do to life and this swimwear collection is the perfect way to mark our birthday year with a physical product. Frescobol Carioca is a brand we’ve known for some time and the absolute perfect partner for such a collaboration: creative, stylish and devoted to the highest quality craftsmanship.’

Frescobol Carioca co-­founder Harry Brantly said: ‘Mr and Mrs. Smith and Frescobol Carioca share many of the same loyal clients, and it has been truly exciting to work on this capsule collection to celebrate the brand’s 15th anniversary. These exclusive pieces have been designed with the sophisticated traveler in mind, and to celebrate our common values of quality, luxury, and attention to detail. It’s been super fun to see them come to life on Ipanema beach on a scorching hot day!’
