Employers, building owners urged to improve indoor air quality

Owners of buildings and employers are urged to take necessary steps to improve indoor air quality to prevent Covid-19’s spread via the air conditioning system. 

This comes as workers are entitled to a safe and healthy environment once they return to work, said Alliance for Safe Community Chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye as reported in Bernama. 

“The safety and health of clients, customers and the public must also be assured and protected,” he said.

According to him, owners of buildings, shopping malls and offices should follow the authorities’ advice and take action to improve indoor air quality once such workplaces re-open after over 50 days of the government’s Movement Control Order (MCO), which was introduced on 18 March.

“As people begin returning to work after an extended period of MCO, indoor air quality in offices and the workplace should be made a high priority,” said Lee.

“It is, therefore, the responsibility of all building owners and employers to observe and comply with the Health Ministry’s Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and ensure proper air circulation as well as improve ventilation in all buildings and workplaces,” he added.
