Be safe at work

Brief your employees, contractors, and customers that if COVID-19 starts spreading in your community anyone with even a mild cough or low-grade fever (37.3 C or more) needs to stay at home. They should also stay home (or work from home) if they have had to take simple medications, such as paracetamol/acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or aspirin, which may mask symptoms of infection.

Safety requirements

  • Disinfectants are used at the recommended dilution rate to allow for contact time;
  • Fumigation activities are only conducted by Registered Pest Control Operators;
  • The fumigation or sanitization service should be conducted during off-peak hours to allow more contact time;
  • Fumigation or sanitization of public spaces such and open parking spaces should not be conducted during rainy or windy days as it may affect the effectiveness of the disinfectant;
  • High contact points, such as  open parking spaces in shopping centers, where there is possibly human excrement on floor surfaces, must be sprayed to reduce the risk of contamination;
  • Applications should be repeating at least every week for it to be continually effective;
  • Evacuation of people from buildings must be undertaken before fumigation to allow necessary contact time and reduce the risk of excessive inhalation;
  • Equipment used should be regularly maintained or calibrated according to manufacturer instructions.

Protective clothing safety requirements

  • Technicians must follow the material safety data sheet or labeling instruction as recommended for protective clothing;
  • Prescribed triple rinsing procedure and disposal of used containers should be followed to avoid incidents;

Post-sanitation maintenance for offices and workplaces (Safety at Work)

  • Promote regular and thorough hand-washing by employees, contractors, and customers;
  • Clean and disinfect bathrooms and toilet surfaces at least once daily. Regular  soap or detergent should be used first for cleaning, and then, after rinsing, regular household disinfectant containing 0.5% sodium hypochlorite should be applied;
  • Wash Linen, bath and hand towels daily using regular laundry soap and water or machine wash at 60–90 °C with common household detergent, and dry thoroughly. Place contaminated linen into a laundry bag. Do not shake soiled laundry and avoid contaminated materials coming into contact with skin and clothes;
  • Waterproof gloves and protective clothing (e.g., plastic aprons) should be used when cleaning surfaces or handling clothing or linen soiled with body fluids.  After use, the gloves should be cleaned with soap and water and decontaminated with a 0.5% sodium hypochlorite solution. Single-use gloves (e.g., nitrile or latex) should be discarded after each use;
  • Perform hand hygiene before and after removing gloves;
  • Gloves, masks and other waste generated during cleaning maintenance should be placed into a waste bin with a lid or suitable receptacle in the room before being disposed of as infectious waste;
