KUALA LUMPUR: Random weekly spot checks will be conducted on express bus companies, which are now required to comply with the Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) code of practice.

Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) chairman Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique said every week, we will randomly conduct a SHE audit on bus companies. The findings will be reported in the CVLB meeting,” she told a press conference held with Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Abd Aziz in Parliament House yesterday.

She explained that previously, the adoption of the code was on a voluntary basis. It was developed in 2007 following a series of high-profile accidents.

“Under the code, bus express companies must adhere to four sections — driver management, vehicle management, journey and risk management. Otherwise, they risk being slapped with a compound or having their licence suspended or revoked.

Nazri announced that the CVLB Act would be amended to raise the maximum compound fine of RM300 now to not more than RM20,000.
