Allianz Malaysia recently brought back its successful REACT Crime Survival Programme to equip its employees with crime prevention and survival skills.
Crime Statistics, Malaysia, 2018 reported a total of 77,802 cases of property crimes and 21,366 cases of violent crimes occurred in 2017. The same year also saw 42,160 car thefts, 16,200 break-ins, 14,128 robberies, and 239 snatch theft incidents.
Safety activist and emergency survival trainer Captain K. Bala Supramaniam conducted the REACT crime and survival programme which took place at the Company’s Head Office at Menara Allianz Sentral with 69 employees in attendance. The programme emphasised on skills and techniques one can use when facing snatch theft attempts, mugging, violent attacks, and carjacking as well as virtual kidnapping and luggage tempering. The programme also highlighted safety tips one can adopt when at a petrol station, car park, or during an ATM withdrawal as well as when using a taxi or e-hailing service.
“More often these days, we find news reporting that crime and violence is increasingly prevalent in our society. Through this programme, we hope to equip our employees with preventive measures and basic safety defense and survival skills to protect themselves and their families from the threat of crime.” said Ng Siew Gek, Head of Allianz4Good of Allianz Malaysia Berhad.
Allianz Malaysia aims to continue its efforts to create awareness on safety and survival by organising programmes like this to raise the level of awareness among employees.
