Worthy captains in their respective industries, Megamas Training Company of Brunei Darussalam and Robert Bosch of Malaysia earned their honour for having a distinct competitive edge. They set the industry trends, and have commendable best practices in place.
To be an industry champion, Megamas has consistently remained focused on its core belief that workers' safety must always be the first and foremost priority. Improving HSE performance is a collective effort which requires diligence and the rewarding of good performance.
Megamas offers a whole range of HSE consultation and training solutions for any industry. HSE management involves managing, controlling and handling all aspects of health, safety and the environment in the petroleum industry.
The company was the first in Malaysia to provide training courses for Maritime, Offshore, Transportation, Environment, Materials Handling and other industries, as well as consultation services for HSE policy, documentation and safe systems of work.
The company's reputation for international, high quality training, along with its totally integrated site has ensured its successful continuation of training provision to major clients such as Brunei Shell Petroleum, TOTAL, BLNG and Petroleum Brunei.
Bosch is where it is today due to its independence in financial management, strength of innovation, quality and reliability, global presence, efficient processes, and forward-looking human resource development.
Robert Bosch GmbH (Bosch) was founded in 1886, and is headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany. Bosch Malaysia began operations in 1923. The company has three manufacturing arms in Penang providing car multimedia systems, power tools, and automotive steering.
Bosch is lauded for its independence and financial strength, strength of innovation, quality and reliability, global presence, efficient processes, and forward-looking human resource development.
Interestingly, Bosch is not a publicly listed company. 92 per cent of the company's shares are held by Robert Bosch Stiftung, a charitable foundation. This structure ensures the Bosch Group develops and implements long-term strategies while staying socially-minded.
