5th May 2018, Pahang – The World Day for Occupational Safety and Health is an annual event to be celebrated on 28th April every year around the world starting in 2003 as set forth by the International Labor Organization. This celebration is intended to commemorate victims of industrial accidents and occupational diseases around the world.
In 2018, the celebration was held as The Occupational Safety and Health Fun Ride (OSH Fun Ride) at Chenor Arena Hall, Maran, Pahang in collaboration with JKKP Pahang, PERKESO and NIOSH which saw approximately 350 riders.
This event focused on improving safety and health to young workers entering the realm of work. Many factors can increase the vulnerability of young workers to occupational safety and health risks, such as their physical and psychological developments, lack of work experience and training.
This event also highlighted the critical importance of addressing these issues and enhancing the safety and health of young workers by giving exposure to occupational risks.
The OSH Fun Ride saw YB Haji Ismail bin Ali and Tuan Haji Omar bin Mat Piah, the Director of JKKP, as well as M Salahuddin A Majid, the Program Director of OSH Fun Ride 2018.
