Requirements for Safe Management Measures at the Workplace after Circuit Breaker period.
There is so much information available through the internet about Safe Management Measures and the measures that businesses and companies must take during the Circuit Breaker, the Post Circuit Breaker, the Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3
The Ministry of Manpower (MOM), the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and the Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF) have issued details on Safe Management Measures required of businesses allowed to resume operations. Businesses must:
Implement a system of Safe Management Measures at workplaces;
Safe Management Measures to reduce physical interaction and ensure safe distancing at workplaces;
Safe Management Measures to Support contact tracing requirements;
Safe Management Measures to Require employees to wear personal protective equipment where needed, and observe good personal hygiene;
Safe Management Measures to Ensure cleanliness of workplace premises;
Implement health checks and protocols to manage potential cases.
Businesses are reminded to ensure the necessary Safe Management Measures are communicated and explained to employees prior to the resumption of work.
Businesses to also put up signs to remind employees and visitors to observe all measures in place. Example- QR Codes for SafeEntry, reminders for employees to use SafeEntry, reminders that Safe Management Measures are observed. Reminders for temperature taking and so on.
If these Safe Management Measures are not well implemented, tighter measures that affect our economy and livelihoods will have to be reintroduced.
The Government will take action against errant businesses, including the cessation of operations and enforcement.

Enterprise Singapore, together with fellow agencies, has issued operational guidance on the permissible activities and Safe Management Measures that F&B and retail businesses should comply with, as attached.
Implementation of SafeEntry
Alongside safe management measures to reduce the risk of transmission in daily interactions and activities, we need to continue to strengthen our contact tracing regime through the use of technology.
Businesses and services that are in operation must come on board SafeEntry to log the check-in of employees and visitors. As a start, deployment will be made mandatory for places where individuals are likely to be in close proximity for prolonged periods or in enclosed spaces, or where there is higher traffic. The list of facilities/places where SafeEntry must be deployed from 12 May 2020 can be found here, and will updated as more activities and services resume.
