Safe Management and Distancing Measures in the Workplace after the Circuit Breaker Period

12 May 2020 LegisWatch

With the potential gradual relaxation of restrictions put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, employers should note the following measures that have to be implemented when the circuit breaker eases after 1 June 2020.

This update summarises the measures employers are required to implement in workplace settings. These measures are issued by the tripartite partners, i.e. the Ministry of Manpower, the National Trades Union Congress and the Singapore National Employers Federation. Employers must ensure that these measures are communicated clearly to all employees. Failure to implement these measures will potentially result in the issuance of fines or stop-work orders.
