Focus Group Discussion – Health Risk Assessment Gap Analysis Workshop that hosted by the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH). The workshop was held at National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Bangi.
The workshop is part of Core Strategy 4, Program 5: Integrating Occupational Health Risk Assessment, under the Occupational Safety and Health Master Plan 2021-2025 (OSHMP 25). The Program 5 activities are centered on reviewing and improving occupational health risk assessments, which covering all workplace health hazards such as physical, chemical, ergonomic, biological, and psychosocial.
The aim of OSHMP 25 is to increase the Malaysian occupational safety and health (OSH) level in protecting human resources, which is an important asset to the country’s development program in terms of achieving the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030 (WKB 2030) goals.
