Business Update & FAQ
On 21st April 2020, the Ministry of Health Singapore announced an extension in the ongoing circuit breaker to curb the spread of COVID-19 (MOH Singapore, 2020). As stated, all businesses except for those providing essential services and those able to operate remotely will continue to be suspended until to 1st June 2020 (MTI Singapore, 2020).
As a regional distributor and manufacturer of personal protective equipment (PPE), the health and safety of every worker is our top priority. Our business is considered essential by the government and we have obtained an exemption approval (refer to Appendix A) from the authorities prior to the announcement. Therefore, we will continue to operate from our offices in Singapore during this circuit breaker extension.
We are extremely proud and grateful to our frontline teams, who report to work every day to ensure business continuity. To best protect our employees, we have proactively implemented a range of precautionary measures, from compulsory PPE at work, stringent sanitisation, and cleaning protocols, to workplace distancing, and frequent temperature checks.
On top of our precautions, we have taken significant steps to safeguard and support our customers. For small orders, we have suspended all walk-in and self-collection services, customers will only have to pay a small fee to engage our last-mile delivery service (2 to 3 working days). As for large orders, we will still deliver. Our drivers are equipped with PPE for their safety. Delivery contractors collecting goods from our warehouse will have to adhere to our PPE and safe distancing guidelines. Hence, contingency plans are in place to strengthen our supply chain and delivery quality.
At PDS, we are committed to serving you through these challenging times. Our measures are aligned with the Singapore government and public health authorities, and we will continue to adjust our approach as necessary.
We will keep you informed of any updates.
