The Perak government has asked the education ministry to establish SOPs for periodic inspections on electrical equipment as well as building safety at all schools.
Menteri Besar Saarani Mohamad said periodic checks were needed half yearly or annually to ensure that equipment is in good condition.
"We also hope that all schools will take action and periodically check electrical equipment including the school buildings to ensure they are always in safe condition.
"Sometimes it is not due to the (condition of) fans but ceilings... as ceilings could be old and may fall," he said when met by reporters in Ipoh today.
Yesterday, the media reported that an eight-year-old girl broke a finger on her left hand after the classroom ceiling fan at a Selama primary school fell and hit her.
It is understood that three other girls, all aged eight, suffered minor injuries.
Selama district police chief Supt Mohd Sabri Saad confirmed that he had received a report regarding the incident.
