TOP GLOVE ASSURES STAKEHOLDERS OF SAFETY OF ITS WORKERS
Shah Alam, Saturday, 16 January 2021 Top Glove reports that some of our employees in four of our factories have recently tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. We wish to assure our stakeholders that we are doing our utmost to ensure the continued safety and well-being of our employees, and to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
All employees at our facility in Port Dickson had gone for screening with Ministry of Health on 14 January 2021, and the affected employees are currently under quarantine. Foreign workers who are under quarantine are in designated quarantine quarters, while Malaysian staff are undergoing the quarantine period at home.
Top Glove is also arranging for the employees at our factory in Sungai Puloh, Klang to undergo mass screening today. For another two facilities where there have been some cases, in Kulim and in Shah Alam, contact tracing and screening of close contacts is underway, regardless of whether or not the employees are displaying symptoms.
All related costs for employees, both foreign and local, will be borne by Top Glove.
Additionally, in all cases, all primary contacts of these employees over the past 14 days have been identified and placed under quarantine and will undergo subsequent tests before they are permitted to return to work. A thorough disinfection of all areas, including living quarters and company vehicles where the affected individuals were present has also been carried out by a third-party professional provider.
The Board of Directors of Top Glove is closely monitoring the situation and in constant discussion with the management team on development and updates of all employees involved, on a daily basis.
Top Glove reiterates that the health and safety of its employees is a top priority. As the Company continues to produce high-quality medical gloves to protect medical practitioners and frontliners across the world, we are dedicated to adhering to stringent measures to safeguard our employees as well as the communities we serve.
