Dateline 2022-02-15, FMT:

The Court of Appeal today affirmed a RM50,000 fine imposed on Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd for failing to secure a safe work system which had caused the death of a worker in Kemaman eight years ago.

A three-member bench chaired by Hanipah Farikullah said there was no appealable error by the High Court, which confirmed the decision of the sessions court.

She said the company did not comply with its own internal guidelines and failed to ensure a contractor complied with the job method statement.
