Malaysia: Building and wood workers’ union federation BWI announces 28 April plans

Global building unions’ federation BWI has announced the 28 April plans of its Malaysia affiliates.

Malaysian BWI affiliates and partner coalitions (Labour Law Reform Coalition) will present a Research Report on “Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration Failures” with a soft launch event on 28 April. The aim of the report is:

1. To highlight the severity of occupational hazards, injuries and deaths in varying sectors and their links to forced labour in Malaysia.
2. To highlight why relevant regulations must be treated as a priority by the Malaysian administration in the ‘new normal’.
3. To investigate existing policy measures/programmes in Malaysia and identify how they can be improved, as well as provide recommendations on bettering the status of workers in
Malaysia based on collected data.
