For example: Genting Malaysia is the country’s first leisure and hospitality
company to embark on the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health-
GENTING Safety Passport Programme designed to provide appropriate training and
assessment on safety and health knowledge for employees on the job. Its drive
towards achieving the “Zero Accident” tolerance target gained recognition when
Genting Malaysia was accredited with the Occupational Health and Safety
management System 18001:2007 and Environment Management System (ISO 14001:2004)
in March 2008.
Safety and health audits are periodically performed by external specialists to
ensure environmental and legislative compliance. Monthly talks are held to
educate employees on safety and health issues.
A new Hotline was introduced for employees to report of any near misses, health
and safety issues or any related violations. In an effort to provide a healthier
working environment, Genting Malaysia team is working closely with the Ministry
of Health to ensure compliance with the Control of Tobacco Products Regulations
at the workplace.
We have proactive recreational clubs in all our business properties, aimed to
build camaraderie and bring employees together through various sports and social
activities. These activities such as soccer, futsal, basketball and badminton
tournaments, salsa dance and yoga classes, family day, trip outings and many
more, allow employees of all levels to interact and bond through common
interests, outside the work environment.
