MLL/3M Senior General Manager Dilan Seneviratne speaking at the National Occupational Health and Safety Symposium


McLarens Holdings recently announced the launch of ‘Seaworld Safety,’ a new subsidiary with a mission of promoting health and safety at work. The announcement was made at the National Occupational Safety and Health Symposium, an event that 3M has been the main sponsor of, since its inception in 2013. 

Making the announcement to the gathering, MLL/3M Senior General Manager Dilan Seneviratne underscored the importance of health and safety at work by highlighting salient statistics: “The International Labour Organization (ILO) estimates that over 6,300 workers die as a result of occupational injuries – everyday. That accounts for around 4% loss to global GDP. In Sri Lanka, 60-100 of such fatalities happen yearly.”

In addition to working with McLarens’ clients across a multitude of industries to supply 3M’s range of safety products, Seaworld will also widen its product portfolio by adding other renowned brands from the world of safety equipment into its already cutting-edge portfolio – brands such as Safetoe and Loto Master will give Sri Lankan businesses access to best-in-class safety equipment for any manner of cutting-edge industrial applications.  Seneviratne also highlighted how McLarens’ organisational culture gave rise to a new subsidiary whose mission was dedicated to uplifting health and safety standards, protocol and equipment in Sri Lanka. “We’ve understood for a long time how important health and safety is for the well-being of our employees, and our overall business. We believe in a simple truism: that when it comes to occupational safety, there can be no compromises.”

Closing his address, Seneviratne made a plea to decision-makers in the Sri Lankan industry: “As a nation, we’ve enjoyed a decade of economic progress that continues to change the way Sri Lankans work, travel and live. We need to safeguard the lives and limbs of the men and women who build and maintain these living spaces, work hubs, and economy-spurring infrastructure that will change our lives. Let us do so by choosing safety without compromise.”

McLarens Group has earned a reputation as one of the country’s most progressive conglomerates, driving business sectors in areas such as maritime and logistics, petroleum and energy, manufacturing and distribution, property and strategic investment and leisure.
