Mr Thong Jong Woei, Director of Marvel Clean (a cleaning enterprise with 80 workers) and Assistant Secretary of EMAS, said that the automatic licence renewal is very helpful for his firm. The resources saved from having an automatic license renewal can be deployed to the frontline and also to attend courses which equips them with the knowledge on how to don and doff personal protection equipment and the correct disinfection procedures.
