• ‘Safety Cadet in School’ promotes ExxonMobil’s safety culture amongst school students from an early age through employee volunteers.
• The initiative is aligned with ExxonMobil’s global “Nobody Gets Hurt” safety goal towards a hurt free work environment, and enabling these values to be extended to the local community.
• About 600 Year 4 and Year 5 students from eight primary schools expected to take part in this year’s programme.
The ExxonMobil Subsidiaries in Malaysia (ExxonMobil) recently kicked off its 2017 ‘Safety Cadet in School’ programme, a safety awareness initiative to introduce and nurture safety awareness and habits amongst school students to create a safer, more conducive school environment.
Since the programme’s inception in 2015, ExxonMobil has continued its investment in ‘Safety Cadet in School’, which is in line with the company’s “Nobody Gets Hurt” goal towards a hurt-free work environment.
The Safety Cadet in School programme allows ExxonMobil to share its safety culture with students, which in turn is passed on to their peers and also extended to their families and homes.
“Safety is a value that is at the heart of ExxonMobil’s culture. Our vision is ‘Nobody Gets Hurt’, and it reflects our core values of caring for our workforce. At ExxonMobil, the safety and health of our employees, contractors, and communities are fundamental to our long-term business success,” explains Viana Liza Abu Hassan, Transition Lead, Global Real Estate & Facilities, ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc.
Schools participating in the Safety Cadet in School programme were nominated by ExxonMobil’s Malaysian employees as part of the company’s employee volunteerism programme to encourage employees to contribute to the communities where they live and work.
The overall initiative enables ExxonMobil to extend its safety culture beyond the workplace and into schools, carried out in collaboration with the Parent Teacher Association from each nominated school.
“Our steadfast commitment to safety is what led us to introduce the Safety Cadet in School programme. ExxonMobil’s philosophy is that safety is not proprietary to our workplace; we also promote safety externally in the communities where we operate.
By instilling safety awareness amongst students and encouraging actions and behavioral changes, we hope injuries and accidents can be avoided with increased consciousness and care,” Viana added.
A total of 600 pupils from Year 4 and Year 5 across eight schools in the Klang Valley and Terengganu are expected to be involved in the half-day programme, featuring fun and engaging activities, games and competitions on safety topics such as Getting to School and Home Safely, Fire Safety, Internet Safety and Bullying.
Interactive discussions are also being held with the aim of teaching students about safety incidents that can be avoided with good safety practices.
The highlight of the Safety Cadet programme is the Hazard Hunt, where students are tested on their newly honed safety knowledge by having to locate and identify the safety hazards within their school compounds.
Students then gather to present their findings and discuss which hazards are most serious and require immediate attention. ExxonMobil volunteers subsequently organize a meeting with the school administration to evaluate the risks and critical level of the identified hazards.
Participating schools are provided grants of RM10,000 each by ExxonMobil to help implement the necessary mitigating actions and safety precautions for the most critical risks.
ExxonMobil has a long history of outstanding safety performance and leadership as it continuously works towards its goal of Nobody Gets Hurt.
The ExxonMobil companies in Malaysia have received many safety awards from its parent company, Exxon Mobil Corporation, and various government and industry groups such as the U.S. National Safety Council, Malaysian Society of Occupational Safety and Health and PETRONAS.
