MITEC Implements COVID-19 HSSE Standards
Kuala Lumpur, 22 May 2020 – Social distancing has become second nature in today’s COVID-19 world and the Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC) has enhanced and updated its Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to adapt to the requirements.
MITEC’s comprehensive Venue’s strict SOPs include continuous staff training, public awareness and multi-media displays, social distancing at public areas and event venues, QR code for e-health screening and declaration form, temperature checks, hand sanitisers, ISO 22000 advanced food safety measures, routine surface cleaning, reduced touchpoints, air quality control and daily monitoring systems. The Venue also offers face masks, gloves and other hygiene protective gear for purchase at its medical clinic.
As a world-class operation, MITEC champions the UN Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals) Goal #3 to ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all, providing secure and safe SOPs for our visitors we value of utmost importance. As such, it is embedded in our Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) protocols to safeguard everyone at our premise and to eliminate and minimise any environmental or significant hazards and risks,” said Gunther Beissel, Chief Executive Officer, Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre.
The Venue is among the hardest-hit sector by the pandemic and has implemented new best practices with strict HSSE measures to enable COVID-19 conscious events in the future. MITEC is the only trade fair venue in Malaysia with its own in-house medical clinic including an isolation room if needed, providing the community with peace of mind and support whilst at its Venue. The facility also has an ambulance stationed at the South entrance during business hours and extended hours during events.
Long before the Movement Control Order was announced by the Malaysian Government in March 2020, MITEC had imposed high standards of hygiene and protection as the wellbeing of its staff and guests is of paramount importance.
“We are committed and very confident to offer a controlled safe environment for all our centre visitors and staff and with the supportive understanding from Government, we are ready to move into the next level of business events,” he said.
