Gamuda Land to improve workplace safety post-MCO
08 Apr 2020 | TheEdge

KUALA LUMPUR (April 8): Gamuda Land will be stepping up precautionary measures to improve workplace safety amid the COVID-19 outbreak, to prepare for work to resume post-Movement Control Order (MCO), which is tentatively set to end on April 14.

The developer expects the situation will take some time to improve. “Hence we need to be mindful of our people’s safety. We are setting procedures including continuously testing our people, especially our front-liners, and ensure that a proper tracking system is in place so we are able to detect and trace any possible cases early including their contacts to curb virus spread,” said CEO Ngan Chee Meng in a statement yesterday.

Although Gamuda Land has screened all of its employees, all of its front-liners and foreign workers who have higher risk will undergo a monthly re-test after the MCO is lifted. Those who are in the lower-risk group will be re-tested on a bi-monthly basis, said the developer.
