PASIR GUDANG: As of October this year, Johor Social Security Organisation (Socso) has given out payments totalling RM83mil involving 21,193 cases.

Johor Socso director Tong Sing Chuan said of this number, some 1,542 cases involved accidents at the workplace and that the payouts for these cases totalled RM4.3mil.

“This includes about RM621,000 given to some 176 workplace deaths,” he said after giving out aid to the beneficiaries of an insured employee who was killed in a road accident.

Sufian Mohd Shah, 29, a surgical theatre assistant in KPJ Pasir Gudang Specialist Hospital here, was on his way home from work on his motorcycle when he met with a fatal accident along Jalan Mesjid on Nov 11.

His beneficiaries are his mother Halimah Abu Bakar, 51, and younger sister Siti Rahimah Mohd Shah, 19.

Sufian was the eldest of 11 siblings, and was the breadwinner for the family.

His father died 19 years ago. His mother, Halimah, said Sufian was hardworking and a filial son.

“He was a very responsible worker.

“He even rented a house in Seri Alam to ensure that he reached work on time.

“He was engaged and had planned to get married next year,” she said.

Halimah added that she was grateful for the swift handout of aid by Socso.

She said she had mainly relied on Sufian’s income to support her family.
