LUMUT, Jan 26 (Bernama) -- The Royal Malaysian Navy's (RMN) KD Mahawangsa made history today as the first ship in the country to be awarded 5S certification by the Malaysian Productivity Corporation (MPC).
RMN's Fleet Operations Commander Vice-Admiral Datuk Wira Jamil Osman said hard work from crewmembers finally paid off despite the vessel having been in service for 29 years.
"We are also proud that it's not only the first ship in the navy but also the country to achieve this feat and doing so set a benchmark for other Malaysian ships.
"The innovative and creative attitude and culture among our crewmembers has also made a big impact in producing a world-class professional sea force," he said during the MPC 5S Certificate presentation ceremony here Thursday.
The certificate was presented by MPC Director-General Mohd Razali Hussain to KD Mahawangsa commanding officer, Capt Jamel Abdul Rahman, on the ship at the RMN Base here.
