KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 23 (Bernama) -- Workplaces are always at high risk for exposure to various types of infectious diseases. It is therefore, the responsibility of the employers to ensure and create a safe and healthy working environment for the employees.
 
On the other hand, employees are also responsible for cooperating in compliance with occupational safety and health measures at workplaces, to protect themselves against any infectious diseases.
 
Some of the precautionary measures to reduce the risk of getting a viral infection as recommended by the World Health Organization are: 
  1. Cover your mouth and nose with tissue when coughing and sneezing. Discard used tissue.
  2. Practice high levels of personal hygiene such as washing your hands frequently with water and soap or hand sanitizer, especially after coughing and sneezing.
  3. If you are unwell, wear a face mask and face mask when dealing with others and limit your interaction with others.
  4. Avoid sharing dishes, utensils, kitchen utensils and towels.
We have been informed recently of a confirmed novel coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China. Our neighbor Thailand, has also reported on the first import case of this coronavirus novel. Preventive measures must therefore be taken immediately to counter the potential spread of the disease to our region.
 
If a worker shows any symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, chest pain, colds and sore throat, it is advisable to seek for immediate medical attention.
