RHB Bank recently launched a campaign to promote a safe and healthy working environment among employees

The Occupational Safety and Health Campaign 2013 aims to achieve a healthier work environment as well as reduce workplace accidents.

“Making the workplace safe is a joint responsibility of both employer and employees.

“An effective health and safety system in the workplace can have a positive effect on productivity and, therefore, on an organisation’s success,” said RHB Banking Group managing director Kellee Kam.

He added that based on internal findings, most health issues were stress-related while in terms of physical injury, they usually were orthopaedic in nature affecting the hands/ wrists and shoulders.

The RHB Banking Group has put in place various measures to assist staff in managing work-related health and safety issues. These include setting up a gym as well as producing a handbook to educate and raise awareness on health and safety.

Health awareness programmes, including talks and training sessions, are also held and employees are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular and outdoor activities.

This year, in conjunction with RHB Bank’s 100th anniversary, an expedition to Mt Kinabalu will be organised.

The three-day campaign was launched by National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye.

Also present was RHB Bank Berhad chairman Tan Sri Azlan Zainol.
