“The ASSETTs program was very interesting and interactive from the start to the end of the second day. Knowledge sharing and positive vibration has been greatly felt throughout the program. The facilitator is very knowledgeable & professional in conveying the objective of the program. Nice ice-breaking session has been carried out to know each other in a special way (relationship among ANN JOO employees). Shortly, this program is an “eye-opener” in terms of the importance & practice of safety and health in an organization and the way we reach others on the matter as well.”
