Malaysia’s Act 514, which is the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994, provides a legislative framework for workforce welfare in Malaysia. 


Principled on protecting workers against hazardous health risks arising from work activities, the practice of occupational safety and health (OSH) seeks to maintain the highest degree of physical, mental and social wellbeing of employees across all occupations. 





OSH has expanded to almost every corner of the modern workplace environment; from laboratory to office, to ships and airplanes. 





It is a broad discipline with many sub-fields, including occupational medicine, ergonomics, toxicology, and psychology; and industry job titles such as Industrial Hygienist, Safety and Health Officer, and Loss Control Officer.
