TNB provides a wide range of benefits to ensure employees and eligible dependents receive the best healthcare and medical treatment. Currently, 1,049 clinics and hospitals across the country are registered on the TNB panel, including general physicians, homeopathy and acupuncture practitioners, specialist hospitals and dialysis centres. In addition to paying medical bills, TNB also provides its employees and retirees with health accessories such as wheelchairs, hearing aids and prosthetic limbs.
Under TNB’s wellness programmes, employees aged 40 and above are encouraged to have full medical examinations at least every two years. In addition, the Company organises regular health talks and screenings for employees and retirees.
Meanwhile, every effort is made to ensure employees are well-versed in safety procedures to be able to carry out their work functions without jeopardising their well-being. Occupational safety and health (OSH) courses such as SEMS Auditors Safety Representatives and Office Safety are organised regularly, and employees are required to attend at least one day of OSH training per year. In addition, the TNB OSH Seminar is held for top management, while the middle management and safety practitioners are required to attend the TNB OSH Conference. The Safety Excellence Management System (SEMS) used by the core divisions of Generation, Transmission and Distribution is now being widely adopted by all other divisions and subsidiaries in the Group to manage OSH issues. As a result of continuous efforts to enhance safety at work, more departments have been certified to OHSAS 18000 and MS 1722 standards.
