MELAKA: Some 800,000 non-professional workers, both local and foreign, will be made to register with the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) once the CIDB Act is amended.
Works Minister Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor said the amendments to the Act would be tabled in Parliament next month.
He said among the benefits for the non-professional workers once registered was insurance protection in case of workplace accidents.
All these workers would have to undergo a mandatory industry related safety course before CIDB registration cards were issued to them, he told reportrs after opening a conference involving senior officers of his ministry here on Monday, May 30.
He said foreign workers would also be made to undergo courses on the laws of the country so that they had a better understanding on the work culture in Malaysia.
Industry professionals, he said, were already registered with their own professional bodies like engineers with the Board of Engineers, Malaysia; architects the Board of Architects, Malaysia and likewise surveyors.
In his speech, Shaziman said the Public Works Department succeeded in completing 97.4% or 4,688 projects of the 4,808 projects it was entrusted under the Ninth Malaysia Plan (2005-2010). — Bernama
