Langat Sewerage Project marks major safety milestone

The MMC PLSB project, involving construction of a Centralised Sewage Treatment Plant (CSTP) as well as a sewerage pipe network, passes 9m man-hours LTI

The massive Langat Sewerage Project now underway in Selangor has chalked a new milestone. In mid-January, the project achieved the 9 million man-hours without loss time injury (LTI) mark.

The project, implemented by the Sewerage Services Department (SSD), is handled by MMC Pembetungan Langat Sdn Bhd (MMC PLSB), a wholly-owned subsidiary of MMC Corporation Bhd.

The event highlight was a demonstration of emergency assistance to an ‘injured’ worker at a tight spot on a tall building.

The MMC PLSB Emergency Respond Team kicked into action to provide initial medical assistance. The Fire and Rescue Department then sprung into action to lower the ‘victim’ with the help of a stretcher. They deployed the ‘lowering and houling’ method to bring the worker safely to the ground.

Among those present at a ceremony to mark the occasion were Sewerage Services Department DG Syed Jaafar Idid Syed Abdyllah Idid, Department of Occupational, Safety and Health DG Ibra- him Md Dol, MMC Engineering Sdn Bhd CEO Mohd Abdul Fatah Endut, MMC PLSB director Chee Weng Loon and MMC PLSB project director Azhar Kasa.

The project involves constructing a Centralised Sewage Treatment Plant (CSTP) with a capacity of 920,000 population equivalents — equivalent to an average flow of 207,000 cu m per day — and a sew- erage pipe network approximately 105km in length.

The high-impact project, covering a catchment area stretching from Batu 11 Cheras to Kajang, allows visitors to appreciate the technology at work. It incorporates top-of-the-class knowledge of sewage treatment plant initiatives undertaken at the Tokyo Metropolitan Sewerage Service in Japan.
