BETONG: The provision of workers’ dormitory at every construction site in compliance with standard operating procedure (SOP) will be discussed further with the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC).

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said post Covid-19 pandemic had warranted the state government to review or improve the SOP of the new normal including at the construction sites.

“That is why I have come here today (June 11) to monitor what happens at the construction site… and from here, we can improve whatever amenities and facilities that we have to give to the workers at the site.

“Of course there will be additional costs since they have to build the dormitory. This is being worked out.

“I have discussed with the contractors on the allocation of dormitory for workers at every construction site and we will discuss it further with the SDMC in the near future,” he told reporters after his walkabout at Sungai Krian Bridge and Batang Saribas Bridge construction sites here on Thursday.

He also said that the dormitory for the workers must be constructed in accordance with the SOP under the new normal.

“The workers who are staying in the dormitory must get their temperatures checked and wear safety gears and equipment before they start work,” he said adding that safety was very important and they must comply with the SOP at the construction sites.
