TOP GLOVE FACTORIES REOPEN WITH REINFORCED HEALTH AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Top Glove implements more stringent SOPs to ensure health and safety of factory workers post EMCO
Shah Alam, Monday, 4 January 2021 As Top Glove Corporation Bhd (Top Glove) reopens its factories in Klang, Selangor, the Company is placing the well-being of its workforce as its top priority, with reinforced health and safety measures.
The health and safety measures being taken include daily disinfection of the entire premises, especially of common areas; sanitisation of internal areas conducted three times a day; temperature screening and availability of hand sanitisers and face masks for all employees and visitors at guardhouse; provision of disinfection floor mats at entrances to factories and offices; provision of hand sanitisers in all common areas; and provision of designated bins with lids for the safe disposal of used Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
All Top Glove employees and visitors are also required to wear a mask while on the factory premises, and it is compulsory for cleaning personnel to don full PPE while conducting sanitisation and disinfection.
Employees are also reminded to maintain a safe distance from others while at work and during their rest times, with clear social distancing markings. Top Glove has also put in place staggered break times for employees; employees are allocated specific time slots for breaks at designated areas to prevent overcrowding.
Since the relevant authorities gave us the green light to reopen the Stage 4 factories on 20 December 2020, all 28 factories in Meru, Klang have resumed operations with stricter adherence to SOPs, emphasising the health and safety of our workforce to ensure that our life-saving gloves reach those who need them most.
Top Glove wishes to assure our stakeholders that we are taking all steps towards ensuring stricter adherence to safety SOPs at our factories, offices, accommodations, and vehicles, and that we will remain vigilant in our efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees and the communities we serve.
