SCAL Advisory for Festive Season
It is disheartening that 2020 has not gone off to a good start for workplace incidents in the construction industry. Within these two weeks, there have already been two fatalities at construction worksites.
SCAL would like to urge members to put in extra efforts to avoid further incidents from happening. In particular, with the Lunar New Year approaching, SCAL would like to remind all construction firms to exercise greater caution, in particular ensuring that their employees and workers remain vigilant of their own personal safety even as they plan for the long break. Construction firms need to ensure that workplace safety practices continue to be observed at all times at their construction worksites.
Attached is an advisory on some measures to be taken to ensure that safety is continually maintained during the upcoming festive period.
Let us work towards a truly Happy, Healthy and Safe Lunar New Year!
Wishing one and all Gong Xi Fa Cai!
