Employers will soon need to provide at least 30 minutes of rest for workers who double up as drivers and have worked at least six hours onsite, before they can ferry other workers in lorry rear decks.

Employers will also have to designate a “vehicle buddy” for all lorries with workers in rear decks. These vehicle buddies must have been briefed on their role, and should check that the driver is fit to drive and remains alert while driving.

Set to be rolled out by Jan 1, 2023, these were among updated measures to enhance the safety of worker transportation announced by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and the Traffic Police (TP) on Wednesday (Oct 19).

MOM will also release an advisory on Safe Transport of Workers that will include recommendations on how employers, drivers, vehicle buddies and lorry passengers can fulfil their roles.

“There is, of course, broad recognition that the safety of workers is key, and it is necessary to have measures which are practical and effective, that can be rigidly and widely implemented on the ground,” said Senior Minister of State for Transport Amy Khor.

She had previously spoken about safety of worker transport during the Committee of Supply debate in March.
