KPJ took another major step forward, when it became the first private healthcare services provider to participate in the "National Fatigue Management Awareness Campaign" among healthcare workers on 24th February 2020.
This campaign was jointly organised by Malaysian Society for Occupational Health (MSOSH) and Islamic Medical Association of Malaysia (IMAM). It is supported by 'Majlis Negara Bagi Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Perkerjaan' (Ministry of Human Resources) with the close co-operation of Ministry of Health (MOH), Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH), 'Jabatan Keselamatan dan Kesihatan Pekerjaan Malaysia' (JKKP), 'Pertubuhan Keselamatan Social' (PERKESO), CUEPACS, Academy of Occupational and Environmental Medicine Malaysia (AOEMM), KPJ Healthcare Berhad (KPJ), PETRONAS and Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS).
The campaign embarks on My REST as an immediate fatigue mitigation strategy. My REST stands for:
My - derives from Malaysia
R - recognise symptoms and signs of fatique and provide remedy
E- education and empowerment at policy and operational level
S - safety of healthcare workers (HCW) and their physical, emotional and psychosocial wellbeing are emphasized
T - teamwork and collaboration with various stakeholders
This campaign was specifically designed to address the problems caused by physical, emotional or mental strain, especially at the workplace.
As a caring employer, KPJ is committed to help its employers to overcome workplace challenges, so that we can continuously improve patient care standards.
