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.
