ProximaX appointed by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) of Malaysia to blockchain NIOSH’s certification process.
NIOSH was established as a company limited by guarantee on 24th June 1992 by the Ministry of Human Resources, Malaysia. NIOSH’s function is to provide training, consultation services, disseminate information, and conduct research in the field of occupational safety and health. NIOSH’s vision is to be a leading centre of excellence in occupational safety and health in Malaysia, with a mission to provide practical solutions in the field of occupational safety and health.
Earlier this year, ProximaX proposed to NOISH the use of blockchain technology to manage the issuance, notarisation, and verification of their certificates by adding a security layer that hashes and easily inserts the certification data onto the blockchain. In addition, ProximaX also recommended having a blockchain explorer for tracking and tracing all blockchain transactions to ensure traceability and integrity.
Lon Wong, Founder and CEO of ProximaX, said “This opportunity to assist NIOSH in becoming blockchain enabled is yet another demonstration of the vast and practical utility of the ProximaX platform in making blockchain technology available to a diverse range of industries in a simple and cost-effective manner. We congratulate NIOSH for their forward-looking stance and we at ProximaX are committed to ensuring the smooth integration of this powerful technology with their existing platform.”
NIOSH’s Information Technology Division Manager, Mohd Rashidi Rohmad stated, “As a progressive and tech-centric organisation, we are excited by the prospect of using cutting-edge blockchain technology.” He continued, “ProximaX has presented us with a methodology that is simple to implement yet highly effective, and we are seizing this opportunity to take the way we work to the next level. I am confident that blockchain technology will play an important role in our agency and ProximaX is our preferred vendor to move into that sphere.”
