CMS Safety Month

It’s The 2nd Year Of CMS Safety Month Campaign!








The slogan “UCUX” (You See You Act) roared itself for the second time with the theme – “To Enhance the Effectiveness of Safety & Health Committee”.

The objective of the campaign emphasised on the importance of safeguarding and managing workplace risks, ensuring that all safety and health measures are in place towards building a safe and healthy workplace.

The launching held in the first week of October, was successfully conducted in Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu and Miri. Safety banners and posters were handed-over by the Chairman of their respective Safety & Health Committee to Managers and Safety Representatives.

As with the previous year, Friday marked the day where employees proudly donned their striking orange-coloured UCUX T-shirt for the entire month of October. Safety banners and posters were also displayed at workplaces across the CMS Group.

The Safety Month Campaign was filled with excellent and exciting activities relating to Safety & Health.

Four sessions of Awareness Training were conducted on every Tuesday which covered on topics such as SHC Workplace Inspection & Audit, SHC Accident Investigation & ERP Management, SHC Roles & Responsibilities, Effective SHC Meeting, HIRARC and Effective SHC. Every Thursday, sessions on SHC Walkabout and Inspection which were conducted at CMS Quarries, CMS Concrete, CMS Cement, CMS Clinker and CMS Premix were conducted.

Other divisions also conducted their own awareness trainings which covered topics on PPE Usage Demonstration, Manual Handling, Fire Extinguisher Handling and First Aid Briefing, on the remaining days of the Safety Month.

CMS’ Safety Month Campaign provides an excellent platform for all Safety Officers and HSE personnel as it allows them an avenue to display their roles as in-house trainers.

With all of the overwhelming support and feedback received, rest-assured that next year’s campaign will be even better!


UCUX – You See You Act!

To keep our people safe and healthy, CMS continues to uphold stringent health, safety and environmental measures. In 2013, we launched our first Safety Month Campaign at the Group level with the theme ‘ROAR Your Emergency Response Plan (ERP)’ and the slogan ‘UCUX (meaning ‘You See You Act!’).

CMS’ annual Safety Month Campaigns sought to create awareness on the importance of safety and health amongst employees while garnering their support in assisting Management to identify workplace risks and implement the necessary safety and health measures.

The launching day saw much excitement amongst employees queuing up for the free health screening conducted by KPJ Kuching Specialist Hospital. Many also took the opportunity to visit the exhibition booths set up by Department of Occupational Safety & Health, Department of Road Safety, State Health Department, KPJ, CMS Infra Trading Sdn Bhd and CMS Group Safety Taskforce. The Safety Month campaign was also launched at CMS’ operations in Sibu, Bintulu and Miri.

In his brief address at the launch, Dato’ Richard Curtis said, “while on the job, safety is the number one concern as employees should look to ensure environmental safety as it is not only for themselves, but also for their fellow colleagues.”

Exciting activities related to safety and health filled the four weeks of Octobers. Every Monday of the week was filled with special Safety Talks by DOSH, CIDB, State Health Department, KPJ, JKJR and BOMBA. While every Wednesday was the ERP Drill session that was conducted at appointed locations in the group. The activities included topics on Physical Safety, Health, Emergency Response and Environment – Safety Talk, ERP Fire, PPE Demonstrations by SHO, Healthy Diet and Ergonomic Talk, ERP Accident, Defensive Driving, ERP Spillage, ERP Training by BOMBA, ERP Natural Disaster and presentation of safety videos.

With all the positive feedback, this CMS Safety Campaign is set to be an annual event for the Group going forward. Across the CMS group of companies and work-sites, safety buntings, banners and posters were displayed to mark the month-long campaign in addition to employees wearing the striking orange-coloured UCUX T-shirt every Friday.
