A WORKSHOP on ‘Occupational and Health Safety at Educational Institutions’ was conducted by B&T Consultant Sdn Bhd on February 21 at the SEAMEO Voctech training centre in Gadong.
The course was facilitated by Director of B&T Consultant Sdn Bhd Dr Balalla, and Head of the Office of Health, Safety and Environment at Universiti Brunei Darussalam Haji Hazilan bin Haji Ramli.
The workshop was attended by seven participants from various educational institutions in the country, including two teachers from Chung Hwa School Kiudang.
During the session, the participants were taught how to identify hazards and the appropriate safety measures to take to address such dangers, and how to conduct risk assessments.
The participation of the two Chung Hwa School Kiudang teachers is part of the school’s efforts to enhance health and safety in the workplace.
Last year, the school introduced a Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) unit, aimed at fostering a safe teaching and learning environment for teachers, staff and students.
