Since the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) Malaysia introduced a Design for Safety (DfS) based guideline in 2017, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) has taken the lead in promoting Design for Safety (DfS) practises through research activities and engagement with industry practitioners.
