A Safe Workplace for All
Our commitment & initiatives in managing the spread of COVID-19 for our workforce in Edgenta HQ & beyond

At the heart of the challenges faced across all our business segments, our resilience has allowed us to respond efficiently, and perform our role as the guardian of our clients’ assets.

That being said, our people are at the heart of the solutions which we offer to the market; they are our most valued asset, having gone above and beyond to deliver our essential services driven by the latest technological innovations and solutions.

As a responsible employer, the well-being of our people remains our top priority and ensuring their health and safety is taken care of, especially during the pandemic is important.

We have been proactive in implementing strict yet practical measures to protect our people from the risk of COVID-19 infections, while ensuring business continuity throughout our operations. These include:

1. Producing & conducting the Contactless Toolbox Talks and Return-to-Work guidelines in 2020
Recognised as best practices by auditors from the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) Malaysia and Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Malaysia.

2. COVID-19 Resource Centre
An internal online platform on Microsoft SharePoint Portal (employee intranet) where relevant information is housed under one roof, enabling our employees to find anything related to COVID-19. The introduction of this platform is to make communication and updates seamless, as it is important for all employees to remain updated through the messages released by the Company.

To reaffirm our commitment towards supporting national COVID-19 recovery efforts, this policy serves as an all-inclusive guide outlining the necessary protocols and actions from all our people across the organisation to continue providing the best quality of services, and catering to the needs of our stakeholders during these challenging time.

In alignment with our COVID-19 Workplace Policy, the following have also been implemented:

    • COVID-19 Manual
      The manual outlines the structure and operational requirements of the Edgenta Health, Safety, Security & Environmental Management Systems (HSSE-MS) in managing the risks arising from COVID-19. It is aimed to reduce, prevent, and control the transmission of COVID-19 at Edgenta HQ in accordance with the COVID-19 policy
    • Infection Prevention & Controls of COVID-19 in Edgenta HQ Guidebook
      This E-Guidebook was developed by the internal COVID-19 Secretariat of Edgenta to support the Return-to-Work experience of our people, as we attempt to adjust to the “new normal”. The content of the E-Guidebook details the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Protocols that have been established in ensuring the risks of COVID-19 are mitigated to as low as reasonably practicable
    • Mandatory E-Learning prior to entering Edgenta HQ (for the first time): “Adjusting to the New Normal at the Workplace”
      The E-Learning is aimed at assisting employees in their transition back to the office with ease and to ensure they are ready and well-informed on the changes / SOPs within the building.


4. Sanitisation & Disinfection Works

Through our Property & Facility Solutions division, we have conducted thorough sanitisation and disinfection works at Edgenta HQ, as well as at our UEM Edgenta Learning Centre in Petaling Jaya. The process was conducted using Stoika’s antimicrobial SDPro solution, which is the no.1 antimicrobial coating in the USA, used to achieve long-term sterilisation and disinfection results.

5. Vaccination Status
Ensuring our workforce, especially those at the front lines and at Edgenta HQ are vaccinated is important to ensure business continuity. To-date, 99.4% of our employees at Edgenta HQ have received their 1st & 2nd dose of the COVID-19 vaccination.

6. Malaysia Technology Expo 2021 Awards
We are humbled to have received 6 awards at the Malaysia Technology Expo (MTE) 2021: COVID-19 International Innovation Awards II for the following categories:

  • Outstanding Innovation Award Winner and Gold Winner in the Prevention category
  • Silver Winner in the Communications, ICT, Support, and Health & Fitness categories

Organised by PROTEMP and supported by MOSTI, IFIA and MSPTM, the awards acknowledge and celebrate all creative innovations and technologies which are utilised in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These awards are a testament to Edgenta’s capabilities in doing our part as a responsible corporate citizen to fight the pandemic, which comply to both national and international standards and requirement

7. Other Dedicated Resources

Additionally, we have allocated dedicated resources such as an in-house Psychologist, trained Mental Health First Aiders as well as a COVID-19 Risk Assessment Team to assist our employees.

And that is just the tip of the iceberg - our efforts are here for the long run. UEM Edgenta will continue to strive for newer and better ways to further enhance our workplace safety and drive a safer overall working culture.
