Ar. Hj. Mior Zawari Hassan established CONSTRUCTION AND INDUSTRIAL SAFETY TRAINING CENTRE or known as CONSIST in 1996. The idea to establish the training centre emerged from the incidents and accidents happened in the construction industry due to lack of safety knowledge. As an architect, he usually visited construction sites to supervised the progress of the projects and he realized that the safety practices is not in place if no proper effort has been done. For that reason,he had thoroughly observed the particular industry and found that there was no training centre in Malaysia which seriously conducting safety training. From that observation, he established CONSIST with no hesitation, aiming at helping the workers in the Construction Industry.

The private agencies that participate in CONSIST training are from more than 100 companies from various industries.


He planned to establish CONSIST as a preferred brand in the field of Occupational Safety and Health training and Education in Malaysia. Thus far, he has succeed in realizing it since CONSIST has been renowned in many industries in Malaysia especially the oil and gas and aviation industries which involve the use of helicopter in their training.

Since its establishment for the last 14 years, CONSIST has and will continue promoting Occupational Safety and Health training to all. This includes organizing training and activities with safety concept such as kid safety program, safety team building, safety family day and safety program for housewives. From these experiences he found that industries and individuals recently have started to aware the benefits of investing in the field of Occupational Safety and Health. It is profitable in the sense that the accidents can be prevented and monitored if individuals were given the proper training in Occupational Safety and Health.

He believed Occupational Safety and Health is a field of high demand in all industrial sectors locally or internationally. In Malaysia for example, it is believed that there are 90% of the need for competent safety and health officer. Unfortunately, most of the industries have appointed incompetent safety officer due  to limited competent safety officers available in the market .

Ar. Hj. Mior Zawari Hassan also would like to promote Occupational Safety and Health as a necessary field for all organizations . He aims to make this field as a potential career starting from after school and not as such currently where individual knows about Safety and Health only upon working.

In order to realize this vision, he established CONSIST College with the approval of Higher  Education Ministry in 2005. This college was established with the objective to promote Occupational Safety and Health field to the school-leavers for a prospectus career as equal as the field of Accounting, Architecture, Engineering and many more. Though this field has not yet acknowledged by the parents and Malaysian students, he did believe that this field will be the choice in the near future.

As a start, CONSIST College now offers a 2½ years program accredited by Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA): Diploma in Occupational Safety and Health Management. This program gained support and recognition from industries and Department of Occupational Safety and Health. This college accepted its first SPM holders as students in April 2006 with only 9 persons. In April 2009, the intake has been increasing to 50 students. It is expected that more students will register for the coming intake.

Beside the SPM holders, CONSIST College takes the challenge of government by introducing the program which adding up soft skill and interpersonal skills and offers a life-long training program. CONSIST College intended to help the current safety and health officers in industries to improve their qualifications to a higher level thus recognized in their organizations.

Therefore, in 2005, CONSIST has offered Professional Diploma program in Occupational Safety and Health Management part-timely during weekends. As for now, 30 participants have completed their Diploma successfully. It is reported that most of them are now holding the significant positions in their organizations.
