Precautionary Measures to Enhance Safety in Stores
Taking reference from the relevant authorities’ safe management protocols, FairPrice has put in place various precautionary measures to maintain a safe shopping environment at all FairPrice stores.
All staff have been issued with masks, to be worn during the course of their work, and hand sanitisers have been made available for use. Additionally, they also have their temperature taken at least twice a day.
This is complemented by other initiatives such as floor markings at checkout queues, broadcast announcements, and in-store posters to inform customers of our strict and stringent processes, as well as contact tracing efforts in compliance with the latest precautionary measures set by the authorities. FairPrice also maintains high-frequency cleaning regimes, especially for high-touch surfaces like railings, shelves, trolleys, baskets and checkout counters.
