Instill Safety, Health Knowledge From Pre-school – Mary Yap

TAWAU: - Occupational safety and health knowledge needed to be instilled as part of pre-school education, said Second Deputy Education Minister Datuk Mary Yap Kain Ching.

She said such an awareness among school children was vital to enhance the image, quality and excellence of the learning institutions.

“As such the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (Niosh) through its corporate social responsibilities has introduced the occupational safety and health programme in schools to extend its campaigns at the school level,” she told reporters after launching the programme at the Vocational College here Saturday.

She was confident the campaign could be extended to other schools to protect the students and create an environment that was suitable to the physical and psychology requirement of the workers, including teaching staff.
