It was officiated by DOSH Petroleum Safety Division Director YBrs Ir. Mohd Rosdee bin Yaacob, with DOSH representatives from Putrajaya and its Directors from the participating states also in attendance.

Such Dialogue Exchange between the government & private sector is a great initiative to promote public safety awareness.

The NGC LPG filling facilities in Pasir Gudang and Port Dickson have also received technical visits from DOSH.

Speaking on the relevance of safety awareness, Julianna Kamaruddin, Chief Executive Officer of NGC Energy at Sungai Petani Convention, said: 

“This collaboration between NGC Energy and DOSH is a joint initiative to ensure that the safety and health standards at LPG distribution centres are prioritised and maintained at the highest standards possible,” 

Discourse on Safety Briefing & Welcoming Notes by CEO NGC & DOSH Petroleum Safety Division Director

Major technical mishaps have shown that their repercussions frequently extend outside the factory fence and impact people, property, and the environment, sometimes over a wide area. Because of this, effective industrial management must include safety.

This convention was organised specifically to increase public awareness of the correct ways of transporting, handling and using Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders and their regulators among gas cylinder distributors.

Julianna Kamaruddin, Chief Executive Officer of NGC Energy at Sungai Petani Convention, added: 

“Given the nature of business and the products these centres are dealing with, the emphasis on safety and health is paramount and should not be underestimated.”

Workshop on Code of Practice for LPG Distribution & Health Safety Measures

Guidelines for Good Safety Practices in the LPG Industry are of utmost importance

LPG, like all energy sources, can be dangerous if handled improperly or misused. LPG should be stored, handled, distributed, and used carefully to prevent incidents, accidents, and their effects. This serves as the main motivation behind the Safety Promotion Programme and these rules. Actions that can be taken as control measures include those that can be used to reduce the possibility that a risk associated with exposure to a hazard will actually occur or to remove the hazard altogether. The hierarchy of control measures is frequently used while discussing control measures.

NGC builds strategic alliances that motivate people to take action, find answers to society’s most pressing challenges, and improve people’s lives. We strive to increase the robustness and sustainability of the economic, social, and environmental systems in the communities where our employees reside and work.

The workshop covered Regulatory Framework, LPG Safety & Distribution chain as well as manual handling of LPG Cylinders to ensure the safety of the workplace, workers & surroundings. The convention was structured to train and equip LPG gas distributors on legislation and requirements relating to the storage of Malaysian LPG and to share experiences and information on the risks and hazards involved. It was also in keeping with the mission and vision of DOSH to ensure the health and welfare of workplaces and the surrounding communities.
