The standard operation procedure (SOP) best practices can help prevent the transmission of Covid-19 at construction sites and enable construction projects to continue to stimulate the country’s economic development.
The Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) said this is important as the construction sector recorded an average project value of RM140 billion annually.
It said the sector also has two times multiplier effect to another sector which means that every RM1 invested would produce RM2 or more in 120 related economic activities.
“Therefore, industry players are responsible to ensure compliance of all SOPs relating to the movement control order (MCO) to safeguard workers safety and prevent the spread of Covid-19 at construction sites and their surrounding areas,” CIDB said in a post on its Facebook page.
