We give them warnings and socialization for not implementing health protocols," he asserted, Tuesday (4/21).
According to him, most companies that violate the regulations during PSBB do not limit number of employees working in the workplace.
"They still employ all employees to work and some of them, especially in factories, are unable to maintain appropriate physical distancing between employees," he said.
He explained, health protocols can work effectively if it is carried out with three restrictions namely, restrictions on employee, working hours, and operational facilities. Although the company is equipped with thermal gun, required employees to wear face mask, preparing hand sanitizers, and spraying disinfectant routinely but not doing any restrictions, its efforts to prevent COVID-19 transmission will be not optimal because transmission still may occur.
