New OSHA Rules: What All Workplaces Need to Know ASAP

RM500,000 penalties, Director and Management liability, and assessing Work-From-Home risks that employers could be responsible for.

If you haven’t heard about the incoming changes for Occupational Health and Safety in Malaysia, it’s time to push the panic button because ignorance is not a defence from the potential penalties of up to RM500,000. Learn about the implications, consequences, and what workplaces need to do ASAP in this edition of Enterprise Explores.

We speak with Shannon Rajan and Selvamalar Alagaratnam, Partners at Skrine to discuss the implications of the newly enforced Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act (Amendment) 2022. Effective from June 1st, this amendment aims to elevate safety and health standards across workplaces in Malaysia.

We take a look at the significant changes introduced by the amendment, including the mandatory appointment of health safety coordinators in companies with five or more employees and the enhanced requirements for workplace risk analysis.
