The Article

In conjunction with its efforts to promote personal safety, particularly women’s safety, Allianz Malaysia held its 20th Crime Prevention and Survival Skills (“REACT”) programme at branch level for its employees, agents, business partners and customers on 24 June 2015 at the Allianz Malaysia Maluri Branch in Kuala Lumpur. The REACT programme aims to create awareness and to equip men and women with some preventive measures and basic safety defence and survival skills to protect themselves and their families from the threat of crime.   

Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Berhad’s Maluri Branch Manager, Choy Weng Choon said, “Today, we find news reports that crime and violence is prevalent - from robberies, murders, snatch thefts, rape and domestic violence.  We see many men, women and children affected and deeply scarred by these tragedies that should never happen to them. We may not be able to completely stop the perpetrators, but as a responsible corporate citizen, we should work together to combat crime. With this in mind, the programme was organised by Allianz Malaysia to raise awareness of crime prevention and survival skills amongst members of the community.” 

The event started in the afternoon with a speech by Choy. Later, the Programme Trainer, Captain Bala, a safety activist and emergency survival trainer delivered his programme on crime prevention and survival skills. He spoke about crime patterns based on Malaysian case studies, which was indeed eye-opening. At the end of the programme, the employees, agents, business partners and customers also shared about how the programme has provided them a better view of crime, how it works and how one can safeguard himself/herself when faced with danger.

“At Allianz Malaysia, we take safety seriously. We first embarked on road safety initiatives in 2011 and later, on crime prevention in 2012. In 2013, we launched the Women’s Safety Awareness Campaign to the general public in Kuala Lumpur and a university. The REACT programme is also held at the Head Office and branch level for employees, agents, business partners and customers, where they can learn about crime patterns based on Malaysian case studies and modus operandi. The programme emphasises how to detect, overcome and survive a crime situation. The same will be taught and learnt here today,” continued Choy.

Allianz Malaysia will continue its efforts to create awareness on safety by organising programme like this to raise the level of awareness among employees, agents, business partners, customers and general public.
