Kuala Lumpur, 15 March 2020 - As a precautionary measure to minimise the risks due to COVID-19, PETRONAS is activating a special working arrangement for its employees. With immediate effect, PETRONAS is strongly encouraging employees who can work from home, to do so where possible. For employees who are required to be physically present in the office or at our operations, PETRONAS is taking the necessary steps to ensure their health and safety while at the workplace.
The above working arrangements are implemented to reduce the risk of the COVID-19 exposure to our employees as well as to contribute to social distancing efforts in the wider community. While these measures are in place, the Company is committed to ensure that there would be minimal disruptions to our business and service delivery to our customers and partners.
The health and safety of our employees, customers and partners remain our utmost priority. As the current situation is rapidly evolving, we will continue to monitor any developments closely and strengthen our precautionary and preventive measures as required. We urge all employees, customers and partners to remain vigilant in practicing personal hygiene and to adhere to directives given by health authorities.
