Practice Safe Distancing during Circuit Breaker Period
SCAL would like to remind employers to practice safe distancing measures at workplaces when they are carrying out essential works. Workers who are not assigned to carry out essential works should not be allowed into the worksite.
During transportation of workers, employers should implement measures as follows:
Attached is an advisory from the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) on compliance to safe distancing measures for workers ferried by lorries.
At the worksite, temperature checks should be conducted before workers are allowed to enter the site and after lunch (at least twice per day). Workers who are unwell shall not be allowed into the worksite and should seek medical attention at a General Practitioner (GP) immediately.
Health monitoring and safe distancing measures at the workplaces should be implemented to further mitigate the risks.
These measures include:
Employers should also remind workers to observe good personal hygiene, monitor their health and report to their supervisor if they feel unwell.
