The goal of ISO45001 is to reduce occupational injuries and diseases, whilst creating a safe and healthy workplace.

“We are pleased to receive this award as it signifies our commitment in being a responsible and caring employer, as we inculcate the OSH culture and promote a safe and healthy work environment within our premises,” said Tan Sri Azman Hashim, Chairman, AmBank Group.

The certificate for ISO45001:2018 was presented by Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, Chairman of the National Institute of Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) to Tan Sri Azman Hashim at a ceremony which was held at Bangunan AmBank Group. The ceremony was also attended by Eqhwan Mokhzanee, Chief Executive Officer, AmBank Islamic, who is also the Group OSH Chairman for AmBank Group.

“The improvement in the standards of occupational safety and health at work depend largely on the awareness of safety culture amongst employers and employees. Hence, our ongoing training programmes and safety training activities play a vital role in instilling this awareness and contributing to the overall improvement of OSH-related matters in AmBank Group.” added Tan Sri Azman.​​
