Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd (SPSB) recently initiated its CSR program to boost safety, health and environmental awareness among students of S.K. Lapasan, Kota Kinabalu. The program was aimed at creating a safer environment at school as well as educating students on marine life preservation.

Held on 2nd November 2017, 45 students were briefed by SPSB’s Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Department on safety and hygienic practices at school while SPSB’s Port Auxiliary Police Department (PAPD) provided a fire prevention demonstration. The PAPD further included a section on Anti – Bullying and methods to manage these encounters.

Department of Environment, Sabah had also collaborated with SPSB in this program by conducting a briefing session on the dangers of sea pollution and its effect on sea life. Students were engaged with quizzes and games as a way to educate them on the impact littering has on the ocean as well as the proper usage of recycling bins.

 

In line with this program, SPSB donated 3 safety signage to S.K. Lapasan. Signage such as ‘Reverse Parking’ and ‘No Entry’ shall be utilised for the benefit of driver and student safety.  An ‘Emergency Assembly Point’ signage was also donated to assist student and teachers during emergency situations.
