This is a success in the application of Occupational Safety Health (K3) in the working environment of PT PAL Indonesia (Persero) in accordance with the principle of K3 norms that apply.

Department of K3LH PT. PAL Indonesia (Persero) annually creates statistical data on occupational accidents and recap on a monthly basis in order to be able to control what work accidents occur annually. In this year only happened 4 times a work accident where the victim can return to work before 48 hours. Department of K3LH PT.
