Safe Management Measures
Enhanced Safe Management Measures
(16 May 2021 to 13 June 2021, both dates inclusive)
So, we are in the 2nd wave in Singapore.
We are aware that the enhanced measures may disrupt your work arrangements and change some procedures you have just recently put in place. After all, the latest SMM was over a month ago on 5 April 2021.
It is a daunting time and with rapid changes from the regulatory advisories launched by the Singapore multi-ministry taskforces, we would like to update you on how these changes may impact your workplace.
From 16 May 2021 to 13 June 2021, the Safe Management Measures ( SMM ) for the workplace will be tightened. Key changes at the workplace include the following:
- Work from home is a default
- Social gathering is strictly prohibited
- Employees at the workplace should have their meal breaks individually
- Critical work-related events are allowed but strictly no food and drinks permitted
Besides the above, there is one small yet important item in the checklist which requires that signs and instructions be displayed at the common spaces in the workplace that social gatherings or socialisation/congregation are disallowed. Please do not forget to put this up quickly.
We foresee that the Singapore government will continue to adjust the SMM according to the situation. As the changes come with short notice, there is a need to act swiftly and in a targeted manner. It is our social responsibility and we trust that with the collective effort, we will be able to bring community transmissions back to a minimum that would allow us to resume our economic and social activities in a safe manner.
Together, let’s work to ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers, vendors and the community as a whole.
