On 20 October, 2008, I delivered my first health talk to staff of IOT Management , an Independent Oil Terminal located at Senari, owned by ASSAR SARAWAK.
This is one of the series of Health Talk as part of my service as Occupational Health Doctor and Advisor (OHDA) to IOT Management. The first topic I gave is on HEALTH HAZARDS AT WORKPLACE. Around 15 employees attended the talk at their conference room at 10 am to 12 noon.
In the afternoon, I attended IOT Management HSSE Meeting.
