MOX-Linde Gases was recently recognised for its achievements in practicing exemplary health and safety practices, receiving three Gold Awards in the recent Malaysian Society of Occupational Safety and Health (MSOSH) Safety Awards 2007.

The three Gold Awards were awarded to MOX-Linde’s operations in Pasir Gudang, Johor and the Hicom, Shah Alam and Petaling Jaya sites, both of which also won Gold awards in the 2006, reflecting the company’s commitment to excellence in safety, health and environmental standards.

Safety performance at the three MOX-Linde sites has been recognised, with no Lost Time Injury (LTI) or worksite fatality recorded for the assessment period of two years.

SY Wong, Linde’s Country Head for Malaysia, commented, “These awards strongly reflect the inherent culture at MOX-Linde, where safety is not only one of our key guiding principles, but also 100% of our behaviour, 100% of our time.”

Wong added, “To us, making safety a top priority is simply about valuing human life, and our SHEQ Policy (Safety, Health, Environment & Quality), which commits to not harming people nor the environment, really guides our pursuit to help one and other, including our customers, to practice safe behaviour on an everyday basis.”

Raising safety standards across Linde in Asia
At regional level, three Linde sites in South East Asia also marked new safety milestones as they broke their own records for work without a LTI.

Earlier this year, the Pulogadung site in Indonesia scored Asia’s first when it received the prestigious Site Safety Award for reaching 3,211,027 hours without any LTI, while the team at Linde Gas Singapore Pte Ltd recently passed two million man-hours without a LTI. Additionally, Thai Industrial Gases’ Talan air separation plant had chalked up 20 years without LTI.

Established since September 1960, MOX-Linde specialises in providing total gas solutions, namely manufacturing and distributing industrial, specialty and medical gases, installations of gas pipelines and allied engineering services.
