CONCERNED with the rise of accidents in schools in recent years, Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye has urged schools that are 20 years and older to conduct annual safety audits.

The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) chairman said through this measure, schools will be able to identify safety hazards such as unsafe electrical wiring or rusty school gates, so preventing the occurrence of more incidents.
