IPOH: Workers who refuse to get their Covid-19 vaccine jabs can face action.
 
Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M. Saravanan said action can be taken under the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act 1994 for causing an unsafe environment at the workplace.
 
OSH requires employers to ensure safety and health of themselves and others at the workplace.
 
“The public can argue that there is no new act but the act related to safety at the workplace can still be enforced. We cannot take action if we see someone is not vaccinated. But we can take action because the place is not safe in terms of the environment,” he was quoted by Bernama as saying at an event yesterday.
