Dato Azhar Abdul Hamid CEO of MRT Corp.: Tabek Tuan!







steadyaku47 comment: 

Our Nation is changing. We now have individuals who will take responsibility when things go wrong under their watch....and do the honorable thing....resign. 

The CEO of MRT Corp, Dato Azhar Abdul Hamid is one such individual. He does not wait for an investigation to find the cause of the accident. He does not wait to finish unfinished business he might have within MRT Corp. He does wait for MRT Corp to find a replacement. He resigns with immediate effect...he takes responsibility over the fatal incident where three Bangladeshi workers were killed when a concrete span at an MRT site collapsed....and he promised that he would see the case through and see that the families of the three deceased workers would be given justice.

And he said "I was told that some security measures were not followed by the sub-contractors and if that really is the case, I will make sure MRT Corp never works with them again," 

This is how it should with the CEO or any company....MAS included. When things go wrong you take responsibility. 

Dato Azhar Abdul Hamid ......Tabek Tuan

MRT Corp CEO quits over fatal incident at construction site

  
PETALING JAYA: MRT Corp CEO Datuk Azhar Abdul Hamid has resigned over Monday night's construction site accident in Kota Damansara that claimed three lives.
"As of tomorrow, I am no longer the CEO," he told a press conference at the site here Tuesday.
Azhar said he had always been very strict over safety measures at MRT sites but such incidents had occurred over and over again.
"I have done my best, but I have evidently failed and therefore will be handing over my duties.
"I was told that some security measures were not followed by the sub-contractors and if that really is the case, I will make sure MRT Corp never works with them again," he said.
He said that despite his departure from the company, he would see the case through and ensure that the families of the deceased be given justice.
Three Bangladeshi workers were killed when a concrete span at the site collapsed at 8.30pm.
Meanwhile, it is learnt that MRT Corp's stakeholder relations and land management director Haris Fadzilah Hassan would take over until the Government appoints a new CEO.
