KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Re­sources Corp Bhd (MRCB) says its wholly-owned sub­sidiary MRCB Builders Sdn Bhd has re­ceived the Safety and Health Assess­ment Sys­tem in Con­struc­tion (SHASSIC) 5-Star Achieve­ment Award for its Kuala Lumpur Sports City Project (KL Sports City), which has ex­ceeded three mil­lion man hours with­out lost time in­jury (LTI).

This feat has been achieved in a project in­volv­ing more than 1,000 work­ers work­ing within an ex­tremely tight sched­ule.

Con­struc­tion In­dus­try De­vel­op­ment Board (CIDB) chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Datuk Ah­mad ‘Asri Ab­dul Hamid pre­sented the SHASSIC 5-Star Achieve­ment Award to MRCB gen­eral man­ager (spe­cial projects) S. Nal­gu­nalingam at the KL Sports City project site in Bukit Jalil, here, yes­ter­day.

MRCB Builders also held an ap­pre­ci­a­tion event at the site yes­ter­day for those in­volved in the project, hon­our­ing out­stand­ing work­ers and sub-con­trac­tors, who were awarded cer­tifi­cates and plaques in recog­ni­tion of their work.

In a speech, MRCB Builders chair­man Datuk Seri Dr Judin Ab­dul Karim said the com­pany would con­tinue to strive to­wards achiev­ing zero in­ci­dences in all its projects.

“This is a proud achieve­ment for MRCB Builders. It is tes­ta­ment to all our ef­forts to raise the safety stan­dards at all our con­struc­tion sites to en­sure the safety of our work­ers.

“We will con­tinue to pro­mote high qual­ity of health and safety stan­dards in all our projects,” he said.

MRCB is well ahead of sched­ule on the KL Sports City project and has al­ready com­pleted work on the na­tional sta­dium.

The com­pany ex­pects to hand over the Ax­i­ata Arena, Na­tional Aquat­ics Cen­tre and Na­tional Hockey Sta­dium in July, al­low­ing ad­e­quate time for them to be tested and cer­ti­fied ahead of the South­east Asia Games, which will be held at these venues in Au­gust.
