How to observe good personal hygiene habits at workplace?

Updated: Jun 16

Practice frequent hand washing with soap (e.g. before handling food or eating, after going to toilet, or when hands are dirtied by respiratory secretions after coughing or sneezing).


Employers must ensure that all on-site personnel, including employees, suppliers and contractors, wear a mask properly and other necessary personal protective equipment at all times at the workplace, except during activities that require masks to be removed. This requirement also applies to all personnel engaged in the sale and preparation of food and drinks at Singapore Food Agency (SFA)-licensed food establishments. Employers must ensure that they have sufficient masks for all employees, factoring in the need to replace masks due to workplace conditions (e.g. humidity). Where possible, employers should consider improving the working environment for employees to enable them to sustain the wearing of masks.


Dispose any soiled tissue paper in the rubbish bin immediately.


Seek medical attention promptly if you are feeling unwell.
