PETALING JAYA: Many employers are still not complying with the standard operating procedures (SOP) of Covid-19, said Senior Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI), Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.
Some of them have been caught not ensuring that employees registered their attendance at MySejahtera when they arrived at the premises, and they were compounded RM10,000 each.
“Some factories in Shah Alam were fined RM50,000 and ordered to close for 14 days because they were found operating during the Movement Control Order (PKP) 3.0 even though their companies were not listed as necessary services.
“I have stressed several times that MITI will not hesitate to issue a compound to any company or employer that violates the SOP,” he said.
Earlier, Mohamed Azmin informed that he and the Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs, Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi had paid a surprise visit to several factories in Klang based on public complaints.
‘Yesterday, I and Datuk Seri Alexander did a surprise inspection of several factories around Shah Alam and Klang. Thanks to the public for channeling information on non-compliance with SOPs.
“The MITI team will continue to monitor regularly to ensure that companies and employees comply with the SOPs set by the Government,” he said in a post on his Facebook today.
He also urges the public to report any violations of this SOP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Your cooperation is much appreciated. This is to ensure that the Covid-19 network can be disconnected in our country. Together we prevent the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic, “Azmin said
