Air Selangor employees to undergo Covid-19 screening

MORE than 4,900 employees from Pengurusan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Air Selangor) will undergo Covid-19 health screening in stages.

Air Selangor is working with Socso through the Prihatin Screening Programme (PSP) to address the transmission of the virus by ensuring the health and safety of its employees and customers.

With Socso-appointed service panel, BP Healthcare, Air Selangor will screen its employees working at its headquarters and branch offices.

Air Selangor said in a statement that the screening will be done in two batches to ensure all the conditional movement control order (MCO) standard operating procedures (SOPs) are followed.

The first screening involves 3,231 frontliners led by the company's chief executive officer Suhaimi Kamaralzaman and his senior management team starts on Thursday (Nov 5) and is expected to be completed on Nov 12.

The frontliners include customer service officers, auxiliary policemen stationed at Air Selangor branch offices, water treatment plants, as well as the headquarters.

The second batch will involve the remaining 1,757 workers and screening is expected to be until the third week of November.

Air Selangor had also established a special team under the Health, Safety and Environment section on March 12 to share the latest information and answer enquiries on Covid-19 among their employees.

The team has also carried out the sanitation and disinfection process which complied with the Health Ministry (MOH) guidelines and used sanitation companies recognised by MOH.

As one of the country's important water supply service providers, Air Selangor plays a critical role in ensuring continuous water supply in Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.
