“We must ensure that workers safety is always our first and foremost consideration and priority”
Since its inception in 1989, Megamas Training Company Sdn Bhd (Megamas) has always emphasised a positive health and safety culture in which safe behaviour is fully integrated into everything an organisation does. It strives to ensure that its clients understand the need for active participation in safety at all levels, as a positive safety culture obligates people to work in a safe manner.
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 – with the focus on major accident risk. The company was the first in Brunei Darussalam to provide training courses for Maritime, Offshore, Transportation, Environment, Materials Handling and others, as well as consultation services for HSE policy, documentation and safe systems of work.
In 2000, after Megamas became the only training provider in the region to hold OPITO (the skills organisation for the oil and gas industry) standards, especially for offshore training with the TBOSIET
(Tropical Basic Offshore Safety Induction and Emergency Training), the company had little competition for a few years. This changed in 2005, when contractors were allowed to train elsewhere in the region with OPITO standards, especially in Miri, Sarawak. Recent years has seen competition from within Brunei Darussalam with new training providers beginning to open up.
