Updated requirements for safe management measures at the workplace

Lisa ThengManaging Partner, CNPLaw LLP

On 23 September 2020, the Ministry of Manpower (“MOM”) updated its advisory on “Requirements for Safe Management Measures at the workplace” (the “Safe Management Measures”), which was first jointly introduced by MOM, National Trades Union Congress and the Singapore National Employers Federation on 9 May 2020. The Safe Management Measures were further updated on 22 October 2020.

Effective from 28 September 2020, the updated Safe Management Measures are intended for general workplace settings and were introduced to minimise the risk of widespread re-emergence of COVID-19 in the community. Specific workplaces such as construction worksites and shipyards may have to fulfil additional requirements and are advised to refer to sector-specific requirements.
