On 18 October, the Department of Quantity Surveying and Department of Civil Engineering in Kolej Laila Taib (KLT) arranged a one-day “Safety and Health Induction Course for Construction Workers” for students to attend. The talk was participated by 12 Quantity Surveying students and 7 Civil Engineering students. Mr Kang Chia Yang, a qualified trainer from Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Malaysia was invited to the college to conduct the one-day safety training class to students.
