While Singapore is having a short “vacation” from the haze this week and the neighbors are still in the hazardous level, it is imperative that organization takes the next crucial steps to focus on its human resources.
- I found this link to be very useful for the management of haze with guidance from the government; it talks about guidance to employees and employers when the haze hits excessive level.
- Another guidelines worth looking at is the Guidelines For The Protection Of Employees Against The Effects Of Haze At Workplaces. It spelled out the key considerations such as what is a susceptible employee, types and criteria of outdoor work affected by the haze?
At this juncture, the key is to take care of the staff members while they are being exposed to the haze due to work. The balance between work and completion of a assignment should be negotiated and I am sure that the customers will be reasonable with these request. The haze is here to stay and organizations must be prepared to “fight” this battles till the dry season is over in September 2013.
