Understanding Factories and Machinery (FMA) and Its Regulation Training


The 1 day comprehensive training course will develop the basic skills of the participants in both theory and practical applications required for implementing Machinery Safety Training. Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 is important in developing a safer and healthier workplace in Malaysia. However,  in many industries, OHS is still at compliance level, especially in Machinery Safety. In order to help organization to control occupational health and safety risk, Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS 18001) was developed.  Based on all Legal Requirements and Standards, all hazards and risks contributing to workers’ safety and health should be identified and assessed continuously.    

Machine safeguarding has become an essential means of keeping the workplace safe. Machine safeguarding refers to specific controls designed to prevent employees from coming into contact with equipment that could cause injury. By understanding where the hazards exist in your workplace, supervisory personnel can help ensure that proper safeguards are in place to protect employees. In addition, all employees who work with potentially hazardous machinery or operations need to understand how machine safeguards work and how to use them to prevent injury. 

Participants will be exposed both theoretically and practically on the procedures and steps in implementing Machinery Safety Training Management.  It will help the participants to set up their system of managing machinery in their respective workplace. 


At the end of this training, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify hazards associated with machinery in the workplace 
  • Apply the principles of machinery safety as described in FMA 1967
