IMMEDIATE – Call to Conduct Safety Time-out for Environmental Cleaning and Disinfection of Construction Sites

In view of the recent confirmed Covid-19 cases at workers’ dormitories and the fast evolving situation, SCAL would like to call upon members to immediately conduct a Safety Time-out for environmental cleaning and disinfection on their project sites.

To guide industry in implementing the Safety Time-out, you can refer to the attached checklist referenced from NEA’s Sanitation and Hygiene Advisory for Construction Sites.

We strongly urge members to participate in conducting the Safety Time-out for the safety and well-being of all workers and staffs. Please complete the online form (here) on your commitment for the Safety Time-out indicating your schedule.

To further guide industry, NEA has developed Guidelines for Environmental Cleaning and Disinfection of Areas Exposed to Confirmed Cases of Covid-19. The guideline also includes a list of companies that can carry out disinfection works.
