Sime Darby Plantation Unveiled New Generation of Safety Helmet For The Palm Oil Industry

BATU PAHAT, 19 APRIL 2018 - The nation's palm oil industry today takes a leap forward as Sime Darby Plantation Berhad introduces a new generation of safety helmet for oil palm plantation workers. The Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato' Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak, officially launched the newly designed prototype during the opening ceremony of 'Minggu Saham Amanah Malaysia  (MSAM) 2018 at the Batu Pahat Stadium.

The safety helmet prototype, developed by Sime Darby Plantation's R&D department in collaboration with Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UNIMAP), features a special design that caters to hot tropical climate and the physical attributes of Asian workers who form a significant part of the industry's workforce.

The special features of the new prototype include a ventilation system to reduce heat stress, shorter brim that allows for better vision and less ergonomic stress to the neck, additional protection to workers’ head, eyes and face, as well as a whistle for emergency alert.

Designed and manufactured 100% by local expertise, the new prototype adheres to MS183:2001, the standard for industrial safety helmet. 

For Sime Darby Plantation, the innovation is not only a reflection of the Company's commitment and pride in contributing towards the continuous development and innovation of the palm oil industry, but more importantly, it truly aligns with the Malaysian government's aspirations to bring the nation's industry to greater heights.

As a globally integrated plantation company, Sime Darby Plantation welcomes any collaboration and more involvement by Malaysians, especially the younger generation, in coming up with more innovative ideas that can further propel the nation's palm oil industry towards a higher level of excellence.
