The ceremony was led by the General Manager of Production and Planning, Kiki Kosmara, who stated in his message that the annual BK3N agenda was a mandate from the Indonesian Ministry of Manpower (Kemenaker) through the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources and the Directorate General of Mineral and Coal to prioritize K3 in the activities of every business entity, institution, or agency for the safety and health of employees. “Therefore, as implementers in the field supporting the company’s operational activities and productivity, let’s not be careless and continue to make safety the first and foremost thing,” he said.

Kiki also invited all employees to make the National K3 Month a celebration to continue to improve and maintain better K3 performance. “So that we can continue to contribute to the family at home, society, and the country,” he said.

Meanwhile, in his report as Chair of the 2024 BK3N Implementation Committee, Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) Manager, Dr. Kuncoro, invited the ceremony participants to remember the theme of BK3N 2024. “This year’s BK3N theme, Cultivate K3, Healthy and Safe at Work, Maintain Business Sustainability, brings a special spirit to us, continuing to innovate in working healthily and safely,” he said.
