He stressed the need for team support and growth, emphasizing that every time someone speaks up about safety, it could save lives!
Furthermore, Dato’ Helmi highlighted the increasing demand for offshore soil boring to support offshore Oil and Gas and Wind Farm projects, which would inevitably increase the workload.
