Environmental Management of SSP3


As a company that is committed to applying the concept of sustainable development, SPLASH strives to find a suitable balance between obtaining economic values from natural systems and the need for ecological balance. As the primal step towards ensuring good environmental practice and sound environmental management, SPLASH strictly adheres to the standards, acts and additional terms and conditions stipulated by the Department of Environment (DOE), Malaysia.

SPLASH Environmental Objectives


To achieve long-term environmentally sustainable development by:

  • minimising significant/adverse environmental impacts during implementation of construction activities and
  • adopting a pro-active approach to minimise potential occurrence of accidents/incidents and/or pollution at the SSP3 site during and after construction.
The detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report for SSP3 was approved by the Department of Environment in June 1999. As an integral part of the EIA, SPLASH has incorporated a comprehensive environmental management program based on its six-monthly updated Environmental Management Plan (EMP). Fostering holistic approach to environmental management, SPLASH's offers a structural and systematic method to incorporate environmental care in all aspects of its construction activities.

An environmental team, working together with a qualified Environmental Management Consultant was set up by SPLASH to control and monitor the construction activities or where control is difficult, to minimise or mitigate such effects with the final objectives of meeting the requirement of the Department of Environment. SPLASH stresses on an efficient implementation of EMP as it is crucial in minimising environmental damage and liabilities at the project site.

For continuous environmental performance improvement at site in order to achieve a long-term environmentally sustainable development, SPLASH has carried out the following:

Pre-construction

  • Establishment of pre-construction baseline monitoring values for various environmental parameters and the recommended mitigation measures in the EIA report before project commencement.

Construction period

  • Site observation (site audit) and compliance audit
  • River water quality management
  • Construction and regular maintenance & upgrading of silt traps
  • Slope management
  • Waste (solid and construction) and wastewater management
  • Air quality management
    As open burning is strictly prohibited at site, SPLASH took the initiative to use the Air Curtain Incinerator (ACI), a clean controlled-burning process permitted and approved by DOE. SSP3 is the first project site in Malaysia to adopt this system.
  • Schedule waste and hazardous material management
  • Noise and vibration quality management
  • Transportation and machinery management
  • Occupational safety and health management

Environmental Safety Procedure


All SPLASH personnel, whose work may create a significant impact upon the environment, wre given appropriate education and training in order to ensure that they conform with the environmental policy, procedures and requirements of the environmental management system, including emergency preparedness and response requirements.

A Safety, Health and Environment Committee is responsible for ensuring that safety at the work site is effectively implemented. Proper safety procedures and guidelines were established to ensure the working environment is safe and statutory requirement are complied with.
