The Ministry of Manpower has also issued Circular Letter no.9, to help employers manage their workplace and manpower by implementing health protocols through equipment and facilities.

To control the rate of COVID-19 transmission in the workplace, Indonesia's Ministry of Manpower (Kementerian Ketenagakerjaan) has urged employers to rely on the Occupational Safety and Health Committee (Panitia Pembina Keselamatan dan Kesehatan Kerja, or P2K3).

The Ministry believes, with P2K3, it can enhance organisations and its employers in terms of health and safety—which is in alignment to K3, Indonesia's occupational health and safety work programme.

"We will evaluate the role of P2K3 in companies in encouraging the implementation of health protocols in their respective workplaces, in order to encourage all workers to apply health protocols wherever they are, both on the go and at home," said Director General of Binwasnaker and K3, Haiyani Rumondang (pictured above).

DG Haiyani added that beyond P2K3, Kementerian Ketenagakerjaan has also issued a Circular Letter No.9 —which focuses on "optimising the implementation of health protocols in the workplace and provision of health equipment and facilities for workers/labourers by companies" for employers to manage their workplace and manpower, especially during the pandemic period.
