Safe@Work Initiative briefing by MITI

AMCHAM held a briefing session on Safe@Work an initiative by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) on 20 April. MITI has taken a proactive and responsive step by introducing a comprehensive initiative known as Safe@Work aimed at balancing the operational sustainability of the manufacturing sector with the control of the spread of the pandemic among workers. Safe@Work is a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) that can be implemented by companies in the manufacturing sector requiring employers to provide safe accommodation for employees as well as comply with standards under the Minimum Standards of Accommodation and Housing for Employees Act 1990 (Act 446).

Vimala Murugan, Director for Sectoral Policy Division, MITI covered all aspects of the initiative, particularly how it affects companies in the manufacturing sector, and allowed for attending members to learn more about the initiative and raise questions as well as concerns with the guest speaker.

AMCHAM would like to thank Vimala Murugan for taking the time off her busy schedule to brief our members and we hope that members were able to address all their questions to Vimala.
