Call To Conduct SCAL Mozzie Wipe-out Exercise (May 2021)

In view of the warmer months ahead where there may be a rising of dengue cases, SCAL would like to call upon all members to conduct their mozzie wipe-out exercise at their project sites from now to 31 May 2021, Monday.

The mozzie wipe-out exercise should consist of identifying and destroying mosquito breeding habitats at project sites. Potential mosquito breeding habitats include water ponding, water receptacles, plastic/canvas sheets, discarded containers, open drains, etc.

We would like to remind members the importance to always practice good housekeeping and vector control at their sites. Members may carry out intensive source reduction and housekeeping using the attached checklist (adopted from NEA’s Guidebook on Prevention of Mosquito Breeding).

Please complete the online form <HERE> indicating your participation in the Mozzie Wipe-out Exercise latest by 31 May 2021. Members who have carried out or are planning to conduct their mozzie wipe-out exercises one month prior and after this period are also welcome to submit their participation.

Members may click here or Scan the QR code below for SCAL’s Mozzie Wipe-Out Guidebook which provides guidance on the prevention and control of mosquito breeding habitats at construction worksites through an integrated approach. It also identifies the common issues and provides recommendation for maintaining dry physical conditions through effective designs and managing residual risk.

For further enquiries, please contact Mr Philips Gason at 66619390 or email . We look forward to your active participation and thank you for your commitment.
