IN THE face of warnings about the haze returning soon in Singapore – and stronger – Millennium Copthorne Hotels (MC), which operates five hotels in the city, said it has taken a coordinated approach to protect staff and guests from the effects of the environmental pollution.
Close to 3,500 N95 masks are being distributed to staff at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel, Orchard Hotel, Copthorne King’s Hotel, M Hotel and Studio M.
It is also stocking its hotel lobby shops with masks for guests and will continue to update them of the hourly PSI readings via notice boards in the lobbies. Thus far, there is no disruption of business, a statement said.
At The St Regis Singapore, which is owned by parent company CDL, a set of standard operating procedures has been developed for the safety of guests and employees. The hotel is also ensuring that there are sufficient disposable N95 masks for guests and staff, while respirator test fittings are conducted for employees who need to work outdoors.
At W Singapore – Sentosa Cove, also under CDL, outdoor activities will be suspended if the PSI reaches hazardous levels of above 350. There are also in-house doctors on standby in case of guests with breathing or medical conditions.
