Introduced in 2013, CMS organised its annual Safety Month in October every year and it was launched by Group Managing Director, Dato’ Richard Curtis together with newly appointed Group CEO-Corporate, Dato Isaac Lugun and Group CEO-Operations, Mr Goh Chii Bing at Wisma Mahmud, Kuching. Witnessing the launch were the Department of Safety and Health (DOSH) Sarawak’s Assistant Director, Sadiyuk Henry Rigit, Deputy Director of PERKESO Sarawak, Dundang Udong and CMS senior management and employees.
Every Friday in October, employees would don the orange-coloured safety polo-shirt, participating in several activities that depicted the 2017’s safety theme ‘A Better You, Today!’. Sessions such as safety talks, training and health screenings were conducted by DOSH, BOMBA, National Resources and Environment Board Sarawak, Ministry of Health, Sarawak Government Hospital, PERKESO and Borneo Medical Centre.
To close the Safety Month, a “Heart Run” was organised at the CMS Cement Mambong plant, emphasising this year’s focus on a healthier lifestyle.
