MRCB Builders receives safety award
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.
