Construction sites ordered to close for SOP violations

Date:

KUCHING: A construction site in Bintulu and one in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan have been ordered to close after failing to comply with movement control order (MCO) standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the construction sector.

The Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) on Friday (June 25) said action was taken after an  enforcement operation was conducted at the sites.

The construction site in Bintulu violated SOPs such as; operating approval from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) conflicted with the actual work performed, and did not record workers’ body temperature.

The site in Seremban committed violations such as;  employee accommodation did not have approval from the Labour Department or local authorities, and no Covid-19 emergency team on site.

Since the implementation of the MCO on June 1, CIDB had carried out inspections on 2,955 construction sites, with 161 of them ordered to close for SOP violations.

Of the total construction sites ordered to close immediately, 49 were located in Sarawak, Selangor (31), Melaka (14), Sabah (11), Penang (10), Johor (nine), Perak (seven), Terengganu (six), Pahang (six), Negeri Sembilan (six), Kuala Lumpur (five), Kedah (three), Perlis (three) and Kelantan (two). CIDB again reminded construction industry players to adhere to the SOPs set, which can be downloaded at http://www.cidb.gov.my/.
