KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 6): Top Glove Corp Bhd said all of its 28 factories in Klang have resumed operations with stricter adherence to health and standard operating procedures (SOPs).

In a statement, the world's largest glove manufacturer stated that since it obtained the green light from relevant authorities to reopen all of its factories in Klang, the company has placed the well-being of its workforce as top priority with reinforced health and safety measures to ensure that its life-saving gloves reach those who need them the most.

"Top Glove wishes to assure our stakeholders that we are taking all steps towards ensuring stricter adherence to safety SOPs at our factories, offices, accommodations, and vehicles, and that we will remain vigilant in our efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees and the communities we serve," it noted.

Top Glove said the health and safety measures being taken include daily disinfection of the entire premises, especially of common areas, with sanitisation of internal areas conducted three times a day.

Also, it also ensures temperature screening and availability of hand sanitisers and face masks for all employees and visitors at the guardhouse, with the provision of disinfection floor mats at entrances to factories and offices,  provision of hand sanitisers in all common areas and provision of designated bins with lids for the safe disposals of used personal protective equipment (PPE).

"All Top Glove employees and visitors are also required to wear a mask while on the factory premises, and it is compulsory for cleaning personnel to don full PPE while conducting sanitisation and disinfection.

"Employees are also reminded to maintain a safe distance from others while at work and during their rest times, with clear social distancing markings. Top Glove has also put in place staggered break times for employees; employees are allocated specific time slots for breaks at designated areas to prevent overcrowding," said Top Glove.

Separately, Top Glove announced that all of the 12 resolutions tabled at its 22nd annual general meeting (AGM) have been approved and duly passed by shareholders.

"The result was validated by Commercial Quest Sdn Bhd, the independent scrutineer appointed by the company," Top Glove said in a filing with Bursa Malaysia today.
