Together with the Singapore Shipping Association (SSA), the Association of Singapore Marine Industries (ASMI) and Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) are jointly organising a Webinar on 14 January 2021 on “Mandatory Precautionary Measures (MPM) at Shipyards”
Since the last industry advisory, Government agencies had observed more incidences of confirmed COVID-19 infections who are inbound vessels’ crew calling at the shipyards for repairs. This presents high transmission risk of infected crew spreading the disease to shore side personnel and the yard workers when the vessel comes into the shipyard for repair works. Therefore, for the yard’s business continuity purposes, EDB would like to take this opportunity to familiarise companies on the Mandatory Precautionary Measures (MPM).
Companies have developed Safe Management Measures (SMM) and implemented them as part of COVID Safe Restart requirements since the reopening of Phase 2 on 19 Jun 2020. EDB would like to review with companies on the worksite C+ incident management so as to be more responsive and effective in arresting worksite transmission risks.
For the upcoming webinar, EDB CCO (Central COVID Ops) and CAI (COVID Audit and Inspection) team will share more on the following:
a. Mandatory Precautionary Measures (MPM);
b. An updated and established C+ Incident Response and Management Plan (IRMP) to chaperon companies in the management of potential C+ incident;
c. Sharing of a worksite transmission Risk Assessment Matrix (RAM) developed by EDB, which can guide companies to conduct their own assessment of their worksite transmission risk level based on their current cohorting plan and organisation in the 3 domains: Accommodation, Transport and Worksites; and
d. Sharing from COVID Audit and Inspection (CAI) team.
