In response to the heightened risk assessment level from Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) Yellow to Orange, a professional cleaning crew thoroughly disinfected the Ohmyhome Proptech Innovation Centre as an enhanced precautionary measure on Friday, 7 February 2020.
Responding swiftly to the heightened DORSCON level, Ohmyhome is going the extra mile when it comes to safeguarding the health and safety of our team, clients and partners who visit our headquarters.
The entire disinfection process started from 6 pm to 9 pm. Fun fact: the water-based disinfectant is able to kill germs in seconds yet is non-toxic to humans and animals.
Family-friendly and Supportive Workplace
As a family-friendly workplace that embraces kid-friendly office practices, it is doubly imperative that effective precautionary measures are in effect to ensure that our second home is safe. Kids of our fellow team members are our frequent office visitors, as such, nothing should be left to chance.
Efforts to boost our team’s immune system is fully underway as well, as the delicious albeit unhealthy snacks and sodas in the pantry are now replaced by nutritious fresh fruits, juices, reduced-sugar drinks, and milk.
Compliance to Manpower Ministry Regulations
Apart from our office disinfection, Ohmyhome is also complying with the mandatory orders such as the 14-day leave of absence for those with recent travel history to mainland China and letting staff work from home if they feel unwell.
Compliance to Ministry of Health Guidelines
We have appointed a flu manager and assistance across all teams. There is regular temperature taking exercises conducted twice daily. If an employee is found to be running a fever (above 37.8 degrees), they are required to work from home until fully recovered.
Since our in-house property agents are always on the move when meeting clients, they are each given a set of masks to protect themselves whenever they need it.
These precautionary measures are in line with our close-knit company culture, one that’s forged through working and supporting each other across diverse teams from sales to tech, customer service to data. After all, creating a safe workplace is not a solo feat. When we all do our part, we can ensure a safe and germ-free working environment for everyone!
