Paper: S.H.E - MS on-site


Quality, Safety, Health and the Environment are different fields that integrate disciplines from both the physical and natural sciences. They are able to interact beyond most mathematical logic. Their actual risk to human and the environment are usually prevailed only when it occur either by accidents or catastrophic incidents. We learn to be prepared. Inevitably, despite relentless efforts in magnifying such awareness amongst concerned personnel, these compounded risks seem to persist. This paper presents special emphasis on Potential Hazard and Potential Risk, and, Environmental Aspects’ Impact, and Our Responsibilities in managing them at Work. Undergraduates are encouraged to participate in its discussion as a preparation to enter its 'real world' and job interviews. Wherever you are in this planet. Cheerio!

Site Assessment - Managing Contaminated Site

Spillage is another significant cause of soil contamination. However its succinct or remoteness in disclosure (or undisclosure) has usually evades prompt attention by management. Unless, otherwise in cases of public interest that lured intervention by the authority, contaminated sites are often secluded in the humbleness of an ecological solitary. This silence is ironically dynamic in most cases. Contaminated drinking well water, vegetables farms and the Durian Musang King orchard located at a convenient 500m from an abandoned chemical/oil spill sites, for example, remains salient unless a site assessment is deployed to uncover its scary stealth.
