This Act does not apply to work on board ships governed by the Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1952, the Merchant Shipping Ordinance 1960 of Sabah or Sarawak or the armed forces. The Act do not particularly state that universities are to abide to the law. Hence are universities required to abide to the OSH Act 1994?
This paper will look into the following aspects i.e. the requirement of the law, expectation and challenges, and how in practice KUKUM endeavor to comply with the OSH Act 1994. It is hope through this working paper; KUKUM will be able to share its knowledge with other institution of higher learning in order to provide and ensure a safe and conducive working environment at the work place against risks to safety or health arising out of the activities of persons at work.|
